IDA Annual Conference 2024

Failte go Ciarraí 2024. It gives me great pleasure to present to you our preliminary details of our forthcoming Annual Conference 2024 in association with the AAFP. We return to the beautiful town of Killarney in Co Kerry from 25-27 April 2024. The theme of the conference is ‘Dental Connections’ and in 2024 we are delighted to partner with the AAFP in bringing you a joint meeting in Kerry in April. We are delighted to welcome as many of our US friends to Ireland next April as possible. Along with many world-renowned speakers on our programme, we also welcome many well-known national speakers, who will educate and inform us over the few days. We will have a choice of three programmes (see inside for further details) for all delegates to attend. Sessions run parallel on both Friday and Saturday and delegates can choose which lecture they wish to attend. Once again, we welcome the involvement of our dental trade colleagues, who will showcase the most up-to-date material, equipment and services on Friday and Saturday at our trade show. As part of your visit to Kerry, we want you to experience and enjoy your time here and we have put together a variety of social activities for you some of the days during and after conference. Remember to put ‘Dental Connections’ , 25-27 April 2024 in your diary now. We look forward to welcoming you to Kerry.
