I am delighted to welcome you to the 49th Journées dentaires internationales du Québec (JDIQ), the annual convention of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec (ODQ). Our team has provided its full support to the Organizing Committee, which once again offers you three pre-convention days, followed by two convention days with a trade show. This proven formula has made our convention the envy of many other organizations.

The bilingual JDIQ app will be available as a free download for smartphones and tablets. Again this year, you will have access to it as of January both to help you choose your training sessions and to provide our exhibitors and sponsors maximum visibility. The app also lets you evaluate the seminars.

We are very proud to welcome all members of the dental team. What a great opportunity to interact and catch up with colleagues! The convention also gives us the chance to demonstrate the vitality and expertise of our network of professionals.


The 2019 JDIQ convention marks the third edition of the CeLABbration event. In partnership with the Ordre des techniciens et techniciennes dentaires du Québec (OTTDQ), we have prepared a full day of seminars and clinical workshops, as well as an exhibition of specialty products and services. We are pleased to welcome members of the OTTDQ and look forward to a large turnout from their ranks.

During the convention, you can attend training courses in both theory and practice delivered by renowned guest speakers from Canada and around the world. Their seminars and workshops will focus on topics related to dental practice and on technological and scientific advances that are currently influencing dentistry or expected to do so in the future. Developed by the members of the JDIQ Organizing Committee, the convention program offers participants a wide array of continuing education activities across all dental disciplines. 

Our convention would not be complete without the participation of our exhibitors, who actively contribute to the advancement and development of dentistry. I encourage you to visit the exhibition hall, where you will find a wide range of dental equipment, materials, instruments and services, all under the same roof. 

The JDIQ owes its success to the contribution of many partners. I would like to thank the members of the Organizing Committee and the JDIQ support staff for their dedication. I also extend warm thanks to our guest speakers for their participation and to our exhibitors for their support. I wish you all a great convention and a wonderful stay in Montréal!

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.
