VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA: Online registration is open for the 2019 Pacific Dental Conference, which is held annually at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Always running from Thursday through Saturday, the meeting in 2019 will be from March 7 to 9. It features a comprehensive agenda of more than 200 open sessions and hands-on courses presented by some of dentistry’s top clinicians and thought leaders. The program enables attendees to earn up to 20 C.E. credits.

The exhibit floor typically sells out months in advance, and this year is no exception. More than 300 dental companies and organizations will be available to help attendees try out the industry’s latest technological innovations and ever-improving products. And attendees will be able to take advantage of the many show specials. The exhibit hall will be open on Thursday and Friday, March 7 to 8.

On Saturday, March 9, in addition to the meeting’s final day of educational sessions, the Dental Technicians Association of British Columbia will hold its annual conference in conjunction with the annual PDC Lab Expo. The Dental Technical Association conference features a keynote address and concurrent sessions. The PDC Lab Expo, Western Canada’s largest dental technology tradeshow, brings together dental technicians and dentists to exchange information and forge new business relationships with some of the industry’s top companies displaying their latest tools, technology, techniques and other advancements. All registered PDC attendees also have access to the PDC Lab Expo. Dentists and their team are invited to join the more than 3,000 dental technicians and denturists to explore the new options and technologies together.

The ability to network with the more than 14,000 dental professionals that attend the PDC isn’t limited to the courses and exhibit hall. Many dental-school class years hold annual reunions at the meeting and there are a number of socializing opportunities, including PDC After Hours and De La Vigne — French Wines Explored.

PDC After Hours takes place Friday evening and late into the night at Vancouver’s legendary Commodore Ballroom, featuring the Famous Players Band, widely recognized as Vancouver’s best live band because of the way they change the way people experience live music. The $25 (plus GST) cost includes two drinks, dinner and the live dance band. Guests must be at least 19 and have valid ID.

Your opportunity to enjoy David Lancelot’s wine selections at De la Vigne — French Wines Explored will be from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday in the Vancouver Convention Centre West Ballroom Foyer. The wine tasting will feature a selection from the northern region France’s Loire Valley through Burgundy, down to Rhone Valley and west to Bordeaux. The cost is $40 (plus GST).
