The Atlantic Canada/Toronto Study Club has you covered from Eastern Canada through to Atlantic Canada.

We are happy to welcome dentists, lab technicians and dental consultants who are excited to learn, build camaraderie, share ideas and grow!

Our club will meet 6 times a year on the last Friday of each month. We have both formal learning opportunities, with guest speakers, and informal discussions about challenging cases. Our focus is to offer opportunities for learning and gaining perspective, from Complete Dentistry through to Digital Dentistry.

Study club style:

Full days – Meetings will be in person* 

*We will offer a hybrid as well (both in-person and virtual).
