FROM THE PRESIDENT
It is my great pleasure to invite you to Reconnext, the official event of the Australasian Academy of Paediatric Dentistry.
After a three-year hiatus due to social distancing restrictions, we’re excited and energised to be bringing our biennial conference back and to reconnecting with our specialist colleagues once again.
That’s why this year our conference’s primary focus is on the incredible value of connecting in person.
The world has rapidly evolved in three years, and so has our profession. Which is why our secondary focus for Reconnext is taking a deep dive into what we’re seeing when it comes to new technologies, new ways of thinking, and new social mores.
After such a period of change, now is the perfect time to be re-invigorated and inspired to move forward into the new world.
I truly believe Reconnext will leave us all better placed to do great things within our discipline. And I very much look forward to connecting with you in Melbourne.
A/Prof Nicky Kilpatrick
