MONTREAL, Quebec, CANADA: It’s been more than two years since the last time the Ordre des dentistes du Québec held the Journées dentaires internationales du Québec convention, but although the world has changed, the quality of the education found at this annual meeting has not.

The meeting is being held Oct. 15 to 19 (Friday to Tuesday) at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. The exhibit hall is open Oct. 18 and 19 (Monday and Tuesday).

In the lecture halls, attendees can hear from experts in their fields on such topics as anesthesia, endodontics, dental hygiene, ethics, implants, pharmacology, HPV and cancers, pediatric dentistry, periodontics, orthodontics, nutrition, medical emergencies, public dental health and more.

One highlight is Drs. Emanuel Alvaro, Lisa Kandella, Matthew Kerner, Matthew Miller, Paul Lieberman and Raphael Garofalo speaking on “Success is No Accident: The Pathway to Predictable Endodontic Treatment.” They will encourage attendees to develop an organized a step-by-step approach to endodontic treatment, including discussions on diagnosis, treatment and follow-up.

Another can’t-miss session is Meg Soper, RN, and her “Bring It On … Strategies to Create a Positive Workplace.” This interactive session will offer a humorous and insightful exploration of different personality styles and generations in the workplace and will discuss how these differences influence people’s behaviour and their response to conflict and stressful situations.

Many lectures will be available for purchase once the meeting is over. Presentations are accessible for a year.

A full list of this year’s educational sessions is available at https://jdiq.ca/agenda-coup-doeil/.

 

Enjoy a bit of Montreal

It’s easy to focus on all the education and knowledge the JDIQ has to offer, but while you are here, don’t forget to also focus on what the city of Montreal has to offer.

Take a few hours to walk around outside. The neighborhoods are always lively, and you can stroll through them at any time of day.

A multicultural city, Montreal is enriched by more than 80 ethnic groups and enjoys, among other things, a solid gastronomic reputation on the international scene. Downtown Montreal is the largest shopping center in Canada with more than 3,000 stores.

Montreal is also the first large city in the world to have an urban geotourism guide map, developed in collaboration with the Montreal community. The geotourism map lists the natural, cultural and historical attractions specific to the heritage of the destination.
