On March 1st, dentalcorp Partners, guests, team members, and sponsors descended on Le Chateau Frontenac in Québec City for the 2018 Partner Conference. The conference consisted of three days of networking, continuing education, and exploring the history and attractions of Québec's oldest city.
With over 300 attendees from across the country, 2018 was by far our largest Partner Conference, doubling in size from the previous year. At this conference, dentalcorp was also proud to welcome a record 67 new Partners to the network.
The weekend was about raising the bar and we want to thank our Partners for their ongoing commitment to making dentalcorp such a strong organization. Partners and teams are spread across the country, which makes the collaborative opportunity afforded by the conference all the more valuable.

On Friday afternoon, guests traveled into Old Québec for an Art Experience at Galerie Québec Art where they learned from a Québécois artist how she creates her abstract masterpieces.
Friday evening, guests ventured north to North America's only ice hotel - Hotel de Glace. Teaming with ice sculptures carved into the walls, visiting the hotel was an experience like no other.
On Saturday morning, Dr. Hagan Klieb presented his lecture on Oral Pathology: What’s New and What’s Worth Remembering.
The final evening of the conference was a night of mystery and dance amidst the history and cultural elements of Québec at the fabulous Musée de la civilisation. Masked guests took in museum exhibits while enjoying champagne and hors d'oeuvres. The party continued as guests danced the night away to a fantastic live band.
