The Scientific theme of IADR ANZ 2022

Celebrating the Breadth and Depth of Oral Health Research 

The theme of the 2022 IADR ANZ meeting is “Celebrating the Breadth and Depth of Oral Health Research”. It will be a celebration as it will be the first time our diverse scientific community has been able to gather at a face to face meeting since the start of the pandemic. We will celebrate the exchange of ideas and new information that will be presented at the conference and the opportunity for you to network with your colleagues and develop new connections and collaborations. We look forward to hosting you for what will be an exciting meeting.


We have gathered together a diverse collection of symposia that address progress and invite discussion on a broad range of important topics in oral health research. The presenters are amongst the best oral health researchers and communicators in our region. We guarantee you will find these symposia informative, thought provoking and stimulating.

We have organised an over-sized main lecture theatre and two other large lecture theatres for the conference so that delegates will have more than adequate space to socially distance if necessary. The foyer area where we will hold the morning and afternoon teas, lunches and poster presentations is very large with a three story high ceiling and is very well ventilated. Delegates will also have the option of open space between sessions.
