Welcome to the 47th Journées dentaires internationales du Québec (JDIQ), the annual convention of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec. The event includes three days of pre-convention activities and a two-day convention along with a trade fair. The theory presentations and hands-on courses offered are designed to meet your continuing education needs.

The JDIQ mobile application for smartphones and tablets will be available for download free of charge, in English and French. It lists all the lectures, speakers and activities during the convention, so you can put together a schedule and evaluate speakers.

We are very proud to welcome all members of the dental team, from researchers to general dentists and specialists and dental hygienists, assistants and technicians. It’s a great annual opportunity to reconnect and chat with colleagues!

This year, we are pleased to welcome members of the Association internationale des orthodontistes francophones. We invite French-speaking orthodontics specialists from all over the world to come meet us and take part in the JDIQ.

In addition, on Sunday, May 28, the Ordre des techniciens et techniciennes dentaires du Québec (OTTDQ) will be joining us for a day of joint convention activities, a first for the JDIQ. We are very proud to welcome all OTTDQ members.

During the JDIQ, you can benefit from theory and practical training given by renowned speakers from Canada and elsewhere. Their courses and workshops will deal with a variety of topics related to dentistry, and the scientific and technical advances that will influence current and future dental practice. The program drawn up by the members of the JDIQ Organizing Committee offers excellent continuing education opportunities for participants in all dental disciplines.

Our convention would not be complete without the participation of our commercial partners, who make an active contribution to the advancement and development of dentistry. I invite you to visit the exhibition room, where you will find an impressive variety of dental equipment, materials and instruments, all in the same place. It’s the perfect time to learn about the latest products and compare different equipment!

This kind of event calls for hard work by a great number of people. I want to thank the members of the Organizing Committee and all the JDIQ staff for their commitment. My thanks also to our speakers for their participation in the JDIQ and all our commercial partners for their support.

I wish you all an enjoyable time at the JDIQ and an excellent stay in Montreal, a wonderfully welcoming city, at this particularly pleasant time of year!

PRIVACY POLICY

USE BY THE JDIQ


The Journées dentaires internationales du Québec (JDIQ) are committed to protecting participants’ personal information (name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number). The JDIQ use this information only for purposes of organizing and following up on the event, and only in accordance with participants’ express consent when they register.

COMMUNICATION TO THIRD PARTIES

N.B. Because of the adoption of Canadian anti-spam legislation on July 1, 2014, the JDIQ will not share participants’ e-mail addresses with any third parties. It will be up to each participant to expressly consent to having his or her e-mail address shared with selected speakers, exhibitors or sponsors. A participant’s personal information, including name, mailing address and telephone number, and whether or not he or she attends any of the activities organized under the auspices of the JDIQ, will be disclosed only with the participant’s consent. Participants will have the opportunity to consent to such disclosure by presenting their electronic registration badge for reading and validation, i.e.:

1. for Continuing Dental Education (CDE) units, to a JDIQ employee. Participants thereby consent to having their attendance, as it is recorded at that point, communicated by the JDIQ following the convention to the Ordre des dentistes du Québec, for purposes of allocating CDE units to their files;

2. for purposes of follow-up or commercial or philanthropic prospecting, to a speaker, exhibitor or sponsor. Participants thereby consent to having their names, telephone numbers and addresses communicated to the specific speaker, exhibitor or sponsor. The JDIQ agree to require of their speakers, exhibitors and sponsors that the personal information communicated to them will be used only by them and only for follow-up or commercial or philanthropic prospecting purposes.

It is agreed that the JDIQ assume no liability when delegates give their personal information, including their e-mail addresses, to parties other than the JDIQ.
