Welcome to ISDH 2019

An invitation from the hosts

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to be able to invite you to the 2019 International Symposium on Dental Hygiene (ISDH) in Brisbane, Australia. The ISDH has established itself as the leading conference in dental hygiene and has become the essential triennial fixture on the dental hygiene calendar. It is an honour and a delight to be able to bring this meeting to Brisbane, to be hosted by the Dental Hygienists Association of Australia (DHAA) for the International Federation of Dental Hygienists (IFDH).

The DHAA will make the 2019 ISDH a great success by demonstrating our professional experience in hosting numerous large conferences. The conference dates for the 2019 ISDH are from 15 – 17 August, 2019.

The Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) is ideally located in the unique riverside cultural and lifestyle precinct at Southbank. Home to Australia's newest and largest Gallery of Modern Art, and to over 70 cafes, restaurants and stylish shops, Southbank is an inner city oasis with green spaces, river front parkland, rainforest pockets and Australia's only city-based sand and swimming beach.

Brisbane's ideal location as the capital of Australia's premier tourist region presents the perfect opportunity for delegates to enjoy a microcosm of Australia's iconic experiences. World heritage listed rainforests, amazing beaches, islands, wineries and the internationally famous Australia Zoo – Home of the Crocodile Hunter – are all easily accessible within an hour of the city. You can even do day trips to the Great Barrier Reef from Brisbane! The Dental Hygienists Association of Australia offers a committed membership group and has strong regional relationship and partnerships. Many Australians have played key roles in the development, establishment and expansion of the oral health field internationally and have been key members of the International Federation of Dental Hygienists. We look forward to working with you to make this a successful and memorable event!
