Welcome, Attendees

We look forward to welcoming all dental professionals to the 2023 Pacific Dental Conference (PDC) taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, BC, March 9-11, 2023.

The PDC offers a wide range of Open Sessions and Hands-on Courses on Thursday, March 9 through Saturday, March 11. The exhibit floor is open to all attendees on Thursday and Friday, March 9 & 10. PDC 2023 will not be offering virtual sessions.

The Pacific Dental Conference is pleased to bring to Vancouver a top notch selection of presenters who are prominent leaders in the dental industry. As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to learn from the best while earning CE credits.

For the majority of attendees, CE Credit is given for general attendance (maximum of 5 hours) and hour-for-hour credit for individually attended courses. The PDC programming offers you the opportunity to acquire up to 20 CE credits.

Over 200 knowledgeable exhibitors will be on-hand on our Exhibit Hall floor to meet with you one on one. Test out their latest products and take advantage of the show specials that many of them offer at the PDC.

Network and collaborate with the thousands of 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!
