Chairman of 9th IAO Annual Meeting
Today orthodontics is one of the most high-demand services in aesthetic dentistry throughout the world. The desire to expand and popularize our profession motivated us to invite you for attending The 9th Indonesian Association of Orthodontists (IAO) Annual Meeting. This event will be held in Bali, the island of gods. You will enjoy the hospitality and discuss the current issues and perspectives of orthodontics in the relaxed and positive atmosphere.
The committee has been working hard to ensure that our program carries value for all attendance. Before going any further, I would like to thank Prof. Kim TaeWeon, Dr. Robert Miller, Dr. Anoop Sondhi, Prof. Kazuo Tanne, Dr. Sandra S Tai, and Dr. Raffaele Spena for their support and involvement. I would also like to extend my thanks to everybody who has been a part of the planning and implementation of this event.
This is a time of rapidly advancing technology, coupled with high quality research has made it possible to provide our patients with a higher standard treatment than before. For this reason we felt that “Current Clinical Concepts & Strategies” would best define to promote over the next three days.
By a program of world-class speakers, we intend to give you an experience in current clinical concepts & strategies in orthodontics. You will have the opportunity to learn from the lecturers who are legends in their own right, and to interact with them individually. I am certain you will have a new vision for improving treatment outcomes with a greater depth of understanding and how technology can be applied to this end. Most importantly, this is an opportunity for you to treat your patients with the best way.
Finally, I would like to welcome everyone to the 9th IAO Annual Meeting which is also held in conjunction with the 9th IAO National Congress. I wish everyone to have a pleasant meeting and congress.
