I am inviting you all to the 18th International Congress of the Turkish Orthodontic Society that will be held on 16-20 November 2022, in Antalya.
We are feeling joyful about coming together again face to face for our scientific activities which we have been conducting through online congresses for 2 long years due to the pandemic. This congress is going to be a great opportunity for us to catch up with each other.
While deciding on the topics of our congress, we chose inclusive titles; with the purpose that our colleagues would have an opportunity to renew and discuss about their knowledge. We have invited important scientists from the orthodontic world and prepared a scientific program, which you all would enjoy and satisfy.
We are also organizing round table meetings to discuss and solve the problems of the orthodontists from our country.
Also, I would like to mention about the venue of our congress; in my opinion, Gloria Golf Hotel, one of the most elite facilities of the area with different restaurant alternatives, sportive activity resources and unique service quality, will create the atmosphere for us to have a congress which would be remembered for long years.
Hope to see you all in Antalya
Congress Honorary President
We are all very excited for the 18th International Congress of the Turkish Orthodontic Society, which will be held face to face after three years. It has been a long time since we came together as an orthodontic family. Although we have often met in front of the screens due to the covid-19 pandemic, we can’t wait to get together; we missed being with our friends and getting involved in social activities! We missed the congress days, where we could update our knowledge about our profession, add new experiences to our clinical practice, and meet with our old friends and make new friends, which is a must for a congress!
We will hold the 18th International Turkish Orthodontic Society Congress face-to-face at Gloria Golf Hotel in Antalya on 16-20 November 2022, with longing for the physical congresses we have been taking a break for a while. I am very pleased to invite you to our congress.
Our congress theme, which everyone is eagerly waiting for, is “Orthodontics for Kids and Teens”. When it comes to children and teenagers, we know that there is so much to talk about and how much information to share; we feel that you love the theme as much as we do and are looking forward to it! Early treatment, functional, orthodontic and orthopedic treatments, anchorage issue, TMJ problems, respiratory problems, oral hygiene, communication with children and young people… All on our agenda, all in life and at every moment of our profession!
We will hold a magnificent meeting with a full congress that will be accompanied by many valuable national and international speakers! Moreover, for the first time this year, we will hold “I Ask” roundtable meetings where we can freely express our thoughts and talk about all the positive and negative aspects of our profession. We anticipate that the Q&A sessions, which we hope will attract great attention, will sometimes make you think and sometimes laugh!
It is our greatest wish to see our colleagues among us at the congress where we will satisfy our longing for each other, strengthen our friendships and exchange information. On this occasion, we hope to meet you in Antalya, the corner of paradise of our country, and offer our most sincere love and respect.
