Welcome to the 46th Journées dentaires internationales du Québec, the JDIQ, the Convention of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec. The event consists of three pre-Convention days, followed by two days of Convention activities, with a trade fair. Theory presentations and hands-on workshops are offered to meet your needs in terms of continuing education.
The JDIQ app for smartphones and tablets can be downloaded free, and is available in French and English. You’ll appreciate the handy directory to the different lectures, speakers and activities. It lets you plan your day efficiently and evaluate lectures.
We are very proud to welcome all members of the dental team, from researchers and specialist and generalist dentists to dental hygienists, assistants and technicians. It’s a great annual opportunity to reconnect and chat with colleagues!
During the Convention you can attend theory and hands-on sessions given by renowned speakers from across Canada and throughout the world. They will be speaking and giving demonstrations on topics related to dentistry and on technical and scientific advances that influence current and future practice in the field. The program, prepared by the members of the JDIQ Organizing Committee, contains all kinds of continuing education activities for participants, in all dental disciplines.
Our Convention would not be complete without the participation of our commercial partners, who make a valuable contribution to advances and development in the field of dentistry. I invite you to visit them in the exhibition room, where you’ll find everything in one place – dental equipment, materials and instruments. You can learn about the latest products and compare different equipment.
The success of this kind of event depends on the hard work of many people. I want to thank the members of the Organizing Committee and all the support staff for their devotion. I also wish to thank the speakers for their participation in the Convention and all our commercial partners for their support.
I hope you will all enjoy the Convention and have a wonderful time in our very welcoming city of Montreal, at a particularly pleasant time of year!
