2017 Annual Meeting — Vancouver, British Columbia

This Year’s CARDP 25th Annual Scientific Meeting will be held in Vancouver BC at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel and promises to be another great meeting. The theme will be centered around dentistry, a multi-disciplinary approach. As such we have brought a broad range of speakers on subjects ranging from restorative, to periodontal procedures, oral surgery, oral pathology, obstructive sleep apnea and endodontics to name but a few. As much comprehensive treatment today involves some or many of these disciplines, the committee thought it would be of value to bring together leaders in these fields to Vancouver.

We will have two opportunities for hands on leaning, one involving digital impression making, and another with Dr. Dick Tucker doing cast gold restorations. As always there is an excellent social program as well as an opportunity to chase after the giant sturgeon on the Fraser River. There is a slight change this year as the president’s dinner will happen on the Friday night, so that more people are able to attend and Saturday evening is free to enjoy the incredible restaurants and varied cuisine that is available in Vancouver.

September is a beautiful time of year in BC and with the superb waterfront location, spectacular water and mountain views to be had from the host hotel, along with a world class scientific program, this is not a meeting to be missed. We look forward to seeing you in Vancouver, September 14-16th.
