2024 SADA Dental & Oral Health Congress and Exhibition: Pretoria

A Personal Invitation from

Dr. Jean van Lierop

Convenor of the SADA Scientific Advisory Committee


With the incredible success of the SOLD OUT 2023 congress in Cape Town, we, the Scientific Advisory Committee of 2024, are excited to invite you to the 2024 SADA Dental & Oral Health Congress and Exhibition to be held in Time Square, Pretoria from August 30th to September 1st, 2024. Featuring a diverse program with speakers from across the globe and spanning 6 different education streams, the scientific committee has curated a bold agenda designed to provide a transformative experience for dental professionals from all backgrounds.


In response to our members' requests for more intimate group sessions and hands-on learning opportunities, this new program features two action-packed days of internationally renowned podium speakers and an additional full day of small-group, hands-on sessions across 6 different streams. This format provides delegates with the unique opportunity to learn from the world's best on both an academic and practical level. By collaborating with international groups such as SPEAR, StyleItaliano, and ITI, our extensive program covers diverse topics including daily restorative practice, modern practice management, periodontal and implant maintenance, community dentistry, and more, ensuring there's something valuable for everyone.


The event not only offers unparalleled opportunities for learning and networking but also provides a platform for dental and non-dental traders alike to establish new connections with clients, colleagues, and friends while renewing old ones.


As the SADA Scientific Advisory Committee (SADASAC), comprising Drs. Mark Bowes, Ridhwaan Haffajee, Avish Jagathpal, and Professors Howard Gluckman, Dirk Smit, and Riaan Mulder, along with myself, we invite you to celebrate our diversity, share in our knowledge, and strengthen our bonds as a South African dental community.


We look forward to welcoming you to Pretoria and the world-class Time Square venue.


Yours in Oral Health,


Dr Jean van Lierop

Convenor, SADA Scientific Advisory Committee 2024
