PDC Vancouver Conf Centre 1

The Pacific Dental Conference is one of the largest dental conferences in North America, offering a varied and contemporary selection of continuing education programs. With over 150 open sessions and hands-on courses and over 300 exhibiting companies occupying 600 booths.

The PDC looks forward to welcoming members of the CDA, BCDA, BCDHA, CDABC and other dental professionals from Canada and the United States.
A wide range of Open Sessions and Hands-On Courses will be offered Thursday, March 17th through Saturday, March 19th. The exhibit floor will be open to all attendees on Thursday and Friday, March 17th and 18th.

The Pacific Dental Conference is pleased to bring Vancouver a top-notch selection of presenters who are prominent leaders in the dental industry. As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to acquire up to 20 CE credits.

For the majority of attendees, CE Credit is given for general attendance (maximum of five hours) and hour-for-hour credit for individually attended courses. The PDC programming offers the opportunity to acquire up to 20 CE credits.

Over 300 knowledgeable exhibitors will be on-hand on the Exhibit Hall floor to meet one-on-one. Test out the latest products and take advantage of the show specials that many offer at the PDC.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network and collaborate with over 12,500 dental professionals that attend the PDC each year. Share ideas outside of the session rooms; attend your class reunion or one of the PDC social events ­­­– learning doesn’t only happen in the meeting room!

Kick off the first day of the 2016 Pacific Dental Conference with a party that celebrates Canada and Ireland all in one festive evening!

First, start with a beer and wine tasting event. Parallel 49 Brewing is one of the fastest growing breweries in Canada and found its roots in East Vancouver. Step up to the tasting bar to sample Jerkface 9000, Gypsy Tears Ruby Ale or Filthy Dirty IPA to name a few! The wines available to sample are from the great grape bearing country of ours – east to west! Wine Whisperer, David Lancelot, has worked his magic once again sourcing the best products from Canada’s top talented winemakers!

Enjoy the Celtic sounds of Tiller’s Folly as you sample with a wide range of beverages and make your way to the various buffet stations. As the evening progresses, the band moves away from its Irish roots and gets the dance floor filled as the night changes to a party of PDC proportions!

Tickets can be purchased online after registering to attend the conference. For more information on the 2016 Pacific Dental Conference, including a list of over 150 sessions on a wide range of topics, visit
