Welcome to the 46th Journées dentaires internationales du Québec, the JDIQ, the Convention of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec. The event consists of three pre-Convention days, followed by two days of Convention activities, with a trade fair. Theory presentations and hands-on workshops are offered to meet your needs in terms of continuing education.

The JDIQ app for smartphones and tablets can be downloaded free, and is available in French and English. You’ll appreciate the handy directory to the different lectures, speakers and activities. It lets you plan your day efficiently and evaluate lectures.

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

During the Convention you can attend theory and hands-on sessions given by renowned speakers from across Canada and throughout the world. They will be speaking and giving demonstrations on topics related to dentistry and on technical and scientific advances that influence current and future practice in the field. The program, prepared by the members of the JDIQ Organizing Committee, contains all kinds of continuing education activities for participants, in all dental disciplines.

Our Convention would not be complete without the participation of our commercial partners, who make a valuable contribution to advances and development in the field of dentistry. I invite you to visit them in the exhibition room, where you’ll find everything in one place – dental equipment, materials and instruments. You can learn about the latest products and compare different equipment.

The success of this kind of event depends on the hard work of many people. I want to thank the members of the Organizing Committee and all the support staff for their devotion. I also wish to thank the speakers for their participation in the Convention and all our commercial partners for their support.

I hope you will all enjoy the Convention and have a wonderful time in our very welcoming city of Montreal, at a 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.
