Hosting the Association of Prosthodontists of Canada One of the biggest changes with the 2014 edition of the meeting is that the JDIQ will host the Association of Prosthodontists of Canada. Among the benefits expected from this joint venture, which also involves the Asso- ciation of Prosthodontists of Quebec, will be a larger number of top speakers in implant and restorative dentistry — and a presence at the meeting of a larger number of prosthodontists from across Canada. The annual meeting of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec continues to be one of the highest-attended den- tal meetings in North America. In 2014, meeting organizers expect to host more than 12,000 delegates from around the world. More than 100 lectures and workshops in English and French The meeting will feature a scientific program with more than 100 lectures and workshops presented in English and French. The JDIQ meeting is de- scribed by organizers as being Cana- da’s most highly attended bilingual convention. More than 225 exhibitors will occupy approximately 500 booths in the ex- hibit hall, making it one of the largest in Canada. The exhibition will be open Monday and Tuesday, May 26 and 27, and it will feature a continental break- fast on both days for the early risers as well as a wine and cheese reception to close out both afternoons. Featured 2014 speakers already in the lineup include Drs. Dale Miles, Robert Langlais, Steven Olmos, Stephen Niem- czyk, Manor Hass, Jonathan Bregman, Michael Di Tolla, Gerry Kugel, Karl Ko- erner, Joe Blaes, Jason Smithson, Brian Novy, Ken Hargreaves, Thomas Dud- ney, Robert Gutneck, Tieraona Low- Dog and James Mah, to name just a few.
