About the Pacific Dental Conference

pacific dental conference

Next month, thousands of dentists and dental professionals will be headed to Vancouver, BC, Canada for the Pacific Dental Conference (PDC), one of the largest dental conferences in North America. The conference is known for its extensive lineup of educational sessions, workshops, and a large exhibition where companies showcase the latest in dental equipment, technologies, and services.

Here at Global Surgical, we’ve enjoyed over 25 years of meeting the doctors we work with, along with plenty of new faces along the way, by attending some of the world’s leading dental educational events such as the PDC.

We love educating dental professionals about the value of dental microscopes, and what they can bring to your practice. These events are a great place for you to start learning about microscopy in dentistry. 

Let's see why the PDC is consistently one of the leading events you'll find an A-Series microscope and your friends here at Global.

When and Where Is the PDC 2024?

This year’s event will be held March 7-9, 2024 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. There will be 100+ in-person open sessions and hands-on courses as well as an exhibit hall showcasing more than 225 exhibiting companies. Thousands of dental professionals from BC, other Canadian provinces and neighboring US states will hear from top notch presenters who are prominent leaders in the dental industry.
