Did you know that tooth decay is still the most common human disease? ...that there's a new biological approach to repairing dentin? ...that dental disease could contribute to increased risk of strokes?

These are but a few of the thousands of pieces of information which will be presented when the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) holds its 84th General Session & Exhibition, June 28-July 1, 2006, at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCC) in Brisbane, Australia. It will also be the 1st Annual Meeting of the IADR's Pan Asian-Pacific Federation.

This year, nearly 2,700 scientific presentations will be made, divided among plenary/oral/poster sessions and symposia/workshops. (For releases on selected topics, please see the white section of this Press Kit.) Estimates are that over 4,500 dental scientists, educators, students, and practicing dentists from around the world will convene, representing the latest thinking in dental research.

In addition to the individual presentations, there will be plenary sessions, symposia, and workshops during the four-day meeting, dealing with special-interest topics ranging from the role of Chinese medicine in periodontics (gum disease), to psychological stress and oral health, and tobacco and oral health. (For a complete listing, please see the green section of this Press Kit.)

Featured during Meeting Week will be the IADR/Unilever Hatton Awards Competition (42 competitors from 19 countries) for student investigators. The presentations, in poster format, will be judged by top-level scientists. Winners will receive cash prizes and plaques.

The Opening Ceremonies and Welcome Reception, from 4:15 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28, will provide an exciting kick-off for the week's activities. After some Australian entertainment, many awards and fellowships, including the 2006 IADR Distinguished Scientist Awards (goldenrod section), will be presented. Refreshments at the Welcome Rece
