Calgary, Alberta

Alberta Wellness Summit - You're invited!

The Alberta Wellness Summit, presented by the Alberta Dental Association and College, is taking place May 23 – 25, 2019 at the Fairmont Palliser and Hotel Arts in downtown Calgary.

This Summit features a world-class program of speakers geared towards mental, physical and financial wellness. It is targeted to the entire dental community: dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and team members.

In addition to speakers, there’s also a series of social and recreational activities that focus on physical and mental wellness. Start your day with a yoga and stretching class to help wake your body up and prepare for the coming day of sitting, standing, and walking. Take in a healthy cooking demonstration to learn about nutrition. And try something a little different with an ‘Intro to Painting’ class with Dr. Cliff Swanlund, where you’ll learn about the relaxation that comes with painting!

Registration will be coming soon!
