The Silver Wave Symposium - 37th ADA Congress Meulbourne

Date: May 20, 2017
Venue: Melbourne

The Silver Wave: what is it and what does it mean to your practice?


The ageing of the Australian population combined with increased retention of natural teeth means that dental professionals will face challenges when treating older dentate patients, such as: root caries, subgingival caries, dry mouth, poor oral hygiene, erosion, dementia, arthritis and polypharmacy side effects among others. The challenges of dealing with an ageing population will form the basis for a symposium to be held within the main scientific programme of the 37th Australian Dental Congress on the 20th May, 2017. The symposium will discuss diagnosis, risk assessment, treatment planning, materials and techniques that work with an ageing population. 



About the 37th Australian Dental Congress

The 37th Australian Dental Congress offers a wealth of learning opportunities and social networking for delegates in one of Australia's premier cities. It will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), which has been awarded the title of Australasia’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre four years in a row.

Staged by the Australian Dental Association, the Congress has been a regular feature on the calendar of the dental profession since 1907, providing attendees with the opportunity to discuss the scientific, technical and digital advances and developments that are changing the face of dentistry and will continue to do so into the future.


Anchored by a comprehensive scientific programme that covers a diverse range of topics for dentists and allied dental personnel, and an accompanying roster of social events that provides ample chance for networking, the Congress is a chance to enhance your knowledge and skills, build vitally important relationships with colleagues and to play a part in the advancement of the profession as a whole.
