Welcome to the DHAA Symposium 2018

The annual event for Dental Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists

The DHAA Symposium 2018 –‘Talking teeth by the reef’ – will be held at the award-winning Cairns Convention Centre from the 18-20 October, 2018.

The now annual event is a unique opportunity for dental hygiene professionals to network, catch up with old friends, and establish new contacts.

Come and be inspired by presentations from well-respected, national and international speakers, discover the latest innovations at the two-day trade exhibition, and catch up the the latest research projects in an array of poster presentations, before partying at the infamous Gala Dinner.

Mark the date in your calendar and make time to immerse yourself in two and-a-half days of fun and dental hygiene, worth 16 CPD hours, while surrounded by the oldest rainforest on earth!
