Don’t miss this exceptional event.
SCOPE OF THE FORUM
The Prosthodontics Update 2020 event offers an exceptional range of presenters, each providing in depth updates relevant for general dental practitioners. The field has progressed rapidly in recent years and each of the specialists will provide detailed presentations on how they approach management of their patients, material preferences and the techniques that they prefer. The two day event will provide a multitude of opportunities to update and further enhance clinically relevant knowledge across various aspects of prosthodontics. Leading Experts in Fine Surroundings providing exhilarating presentations. CPD at its Best.
Over the past many years, these events have been opened by State Ministers and Members of Parliament on fourteen occasions and have seen delegates from across Australia, New Zealand and beyond enjoy exceptional CPD. In approaching the 50th event Milestone in 2020 the Queensland Dental Group’s underlying philosophies remain strong, namely to seek leading experts from all disciplines to join us in fine surroundings and importantly without any sponsors. These philosophies make QDG events a very unique experience within the Australasia region. We remain focused in offering our speakers a level playing field. No sponsors means no bias and allows each of the leading experts to provide their unbiased opinions, views and preferences without any overshadowing bias. Dental CE, the way it’s meant to be.
