The Era of the Virtual Patient


Welcome Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Convocation Committees and the Council, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 24th Convocation of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons to be held at the Hilton, Adelaide from 20th – 23rd September 2018. The 24th Convocation will be held in conjunction with the 3rd Joint Colleges Scientific Meeting (JCSM). We look forward to welcoming our colleagues from The College of Dental Surgeons of Hong Kong and The College of Dental Surgeons, Singapore. This joint meeting initiative is a significant development in collaboration of dental practitioners in the Australasian region.

The Scientific Programme is built on the theme: “The Era of the Virtual Patient.” From conception to death, our digital footprint is now expanding exponentially. The 24th Convocation will explore the impact of digital data and technology on the delivery of dental care across the life course.

The Hilton, Adelaide is a 5 star property located in the heart of Adelaide. The Hilton is within close proximity to Victoria Square, the Adelaide Central Market and Rundle Mall shopping precinct. The Convocation promises an impressive series of speakers and facilitators alongside evening activities that are sure to be unforgettable. Our Opening Ceremony and President’s Reception will take place within iconic Adelaide Town Hall, a striking location to welcome new Fellows and Members, and hear from esteemed colleagues.

Our Convocation dinner will be held at a unique Adelaide venue. The evening will be launched with canapés and drinks, followed by a delicious meal showcasing South Australia’s finest produce.

We look forward to joining many of our Fellows, Members and Candidates at the Convocation to participate in a first class scientific program, taste local South Australian delights and catch up with old friends and colleagues.
