Our Philosophy

Approaching our 50th event in 2020, our underlying philosophies remain unchanged. Leading experts in fine surroundings and importantly without any sponsors are the key to a great event. This sets us apart and makes our events a very unique experience within the Australasia region. We remain focused in offering our speakers the total control in their lectures. No sponsors means no bias and allows each of the leading experts to provide their unbiased opinions, views and preferences without any overshadowing bias. Dental CE, the way it’s meant to be.
