About ISDH 2019 from the Chair

The Symposium, held every three years under the auspices of the International Federation of Dental Hygienists (IFDH), comes to Australia in 2019 with DHAA proud to host this international event for the second time. Delegates from more than 32 countries are expected to attend the symposium. Our intention is to give full recognition to key sponsors throughout the program for their invaluable contribution in making this conference the highlight in the 2019 calendar.

The Scientific Program will focus on all aspects of Dental Hygiene practice to uncover the vital role of dental hygienists as primary healthcare providers in complete health care and to unite the dental hygiene profession and other disciplines. It will benefit an international meeting of dental hygienists as well as other healthcare professions with outstanding quality and a range of interest to all healthcare providers and delegates.

This international meeting will provide dental hygienists and other health care professionals with an outstanding program and high calibre speakers, to ensure delegates are stimulated and engaged throughout the entire conference.

The scientific program will also support the approach recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) that prioritizes evidence-based practice.

The 'not to be missed' Opening Ceremony will be held on the morning of Thursday 15th August 2019, as an introduction to three days of scientific exchange and knowledge update in the arena of global healthcare.

An associated Dental Industry Exhibition will run in conjunction with the Symposium offering exhibiting companies the opportunity to showcase their products and services to an international audience of highly enthusiastic delegates.
