The official kick-off to the college’s 50th anniversary celebrations will occur in conjunction with the 2018 Saskatchewan Oral Health Conference that is taking place between September 6th and 8th, 2018.

The main anniversary kick-off event will put a new twist on the annual College of Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan awards dinner & the College of Dentistry Alumni reception by combining both events into a tapas-style cocktail reception held on Friday, September 7!

The evening’s festivities will incorporate a cocktail reception with short programing throughout and opportunities to enjoy great food, beverages (including a champagne toast), and the chance to reconnect with old acquaintances.

Register now to join us at this evening of celebration which will bring the profession together to recognize our members, reflect on our past and look to the future.

NOTE: If you are not planning to attend the Saskatchewan Oral Health Conference, please register by choosing "attendee" and then "Guest (Social and Banquet access only)"

Remember, Reunite & Rejoice
