Register before midnight December 31, 2012 and you could win an iPad!

Visit the new and improved  Manitoba Dental Association Annual Meeting and Convention website which provides visitors and delegates with information about the upcoming 129th Annual Meeting and Convention. For the first time, delegates will be able to fully register online and view the complete details of the convention program.

The Annual Meeting and Convention Committee has taken great care in putting together an exceptional dental clinical program combined with a non clinical program that addresses the major themes and concerns of dental practitioners today. These sessions are presented by some of North America’s leading dental presenters and experts in the field of dentistry.

The exhibit trade show is once again sold out and provides delegates with the opportunity to view the latest advances in dental technology, meet with suppliers, and create new business relationships.

Finally, the City of Winnipeg offers an infinite variety of things to do and see during the winter. It is a city rich in arts and culture with a unique fusion of Asian, European, African, and Latin American heritage. 

See you in Winnipeg in January 2013.

*Hot topics in periodontology, with Ms Rebecca Wilder, is a full day seminar at the MDA conference.
