In British Columbia, the tradition of gathering to share information on dentistry began in 1936 when the first BC Study Club was established. As time passed, the need for an annual meeting that all BC dentists could attend became evident. An annual dental convention was created and in the subsequent years experienced continued growth and with that the need to expand from smaller hotel settings into the world class Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre (now the Vancouver Convention Centre). In 1998 that meeting became known as the Pacific Dental Conference and welcomed dentists and their teams not only from BC, but from other provinces and our neighbors in the US. The tradition of offering exceptional continuing education programs, the latest in cutting edge techniques, and emerging technology and services continues today.
The Pacific Dental Conference is organized by dental professionals for dental professionals. The PDC Organizing Group (made up of nine Dentists and one Hygienist) volunteer their time to bring you one of the best dental conferences in North America.
