Dental science and technology at the forefront

The rapid advances in dental materials and technology are benefiting patients, as well as practices, with the knowledge and technology required to offer advanced treatment options such as laser, aesthetic, digital and implant dentistry.

In 2018, the theme "Intensifying professionalism in synergy with dental science and technology" will allow participants to discuss the scientific and technical breakthroughs that are changing the landscape of dentistry, and fulfill their continuing education and professional development requirements.

"Our theme for this year aptly describes, how we as dental professionals, continually strive for excellence in whatever field of specialty we may be into. Featured in this convention are renowned local and foreign speakers from every specialty field, who will bring in their expertise through noteworthy lectures that are relevant and timely to our dental practice."
Dr Arleen R. Reyes, Philippine Dental Association President-Elect 

A distinguished lineup of speakers

Regional and international experts will come together to lead a dynamic scientific programme, plenary sessions, lunch symposia, and hands-on workshops specifically tailored to the region’s dental practitioners at all career stages.

The state-of-the art scientific programme, along with over 500 dental trade booths, will provide participants with an opportunity to hear firsthand from the world’s leading experts in dentistry and to inspire the advancement of the profession in their home countries.

Manila, known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, is center of the country's government and commerce and is filled with important architectural and cultural landmarks. A social programme is also available.

APDC attendees are recommended to register before the event, rather than on-site, to benefit from reduced rates.
