Message from Convention Chairperson

I am deeply honored to welcome you to the 60th annual celebration of the Jamaica Dental Association Annual Dental Convention in the beautiful surroundings of Jamaica.

I wish to convey my sincere appreciation to our steadfast supporters and to those who are joining us for the very first time. I extend a warm welcome to our international attendees, who are graciously embracing our culture and hospitality here in Jamaica.

This historic occasion, of our "Diamond year," represents a significant moment for reflection and celebration. Like diamonds forged under intense pressure, the Jamaica Dental Association has weathered numerous challenges over the years, demonstrating commitment, strength and resilience. We humbly recognize and express our gratitude to those who laid the foundation that paved the way, enabling us to build and expand our legacy of knowledge and learning.

The field of dentistry is in constant evolution, and as clinicians, we must equip ourselves with the necessary tools to stay at the forefront. In line with this year's theme, "Discovering New Frontiers in Oral Health”, we are committed to propelling you into the future over the four conference days. Our scientific programme includes a series of lectures that promises to excite and reinvigorate the entire dental team. Covering all major specialties of Dentistry and delivered by world-class lecturers, we aim to maintain the tradition of Jamaica Dental Association's legacy as a premier dental convention in the Caribbean.

As we embark on this year's convention, I would like to extend our gratitude to our invaluable sponsors, dedicated lecturers, enthusiastic attendees and our hardworking convention committee. Without your support and dedication, this event would not have been possible. To the exhibiting companies, whether local or international, your products and services exemplify cutting-edge solutions that are revolutionizing the methods through which we provide care and enhance oral health.

The breathtaking backdrop of the Royalton Blue Waters Montego Bay Resort nestled in Falmouth, Trelawny, provides the perfect setting for our blend of educational sessions and social events, including our opening ceremony and the Diamond Gala and Awards.

Let’s seize this opportunity to learn, network, and collaborate, enabling us to collectively shape the future of oral health care.

Join us as we step into the future of Dentistry at Convention 2024.

Dr. Nicola Ellis
Convention Chairman 2024
