Each year, the ACDQ gives a course on a different subject, which most often focuses on dental practice management, without excluding clinical topics. To this end, the Association calls on external as well as internal consultants, depending on the theme.


This one-day course is intended for dentists who act as managers and dental office employees who are responsible for managing human resources as part of their duties.

The theme for the year 2017-2018 is Human Resources Management—A Key Success Factor for Your Office. Click here to consult the development course’s promotional leaflet.


Courses are held on Fridays and given free of charge by the Association des chirurgiens dentistes du Québec through dental societies, which each determine their own terms. Participants are asked to register 30 minutes before the course start.


All Quebec dentists. However, depending on the subject, in some years, dentists can attend with members of their personnel.

Reference material

A reference material is distributed to participants for each of the ACDQ professional development courses.
