Dear Colleagues,

We will organize the 17th International Turkish Orthodontic Society Symposium virtually on 28 and 29 November 2021. AS COVID-19 pandemic still continues all over the world and in our country, we decided to organize our symposium virtually, just like our previous congress. On behalf of the Turkish Orthodontic Society Board of Directors and Organizing Committee, I’m honored to invite you to this meeting which is one of the biggest scientific activities of our society.

While preparing the scientific program of our symposium, we tried not only to cover the topics that we will take advantage of in our current practices, but also to include the latest scientific developments all over the world. In addition to our speakers who are all expert in their fields, esteemed speakers from abroad will also contribute to our symposium. As in our previous meetings, our scientific program will get enriched with oral and poster presentations.

Our symposium theme is “Biomechanics matters!”. Even though we see several innovations in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment methods every day, we will review our knowledge about biomechanics by accepting the fact that what really matters is knowing biomechanics. Moreover we will refresh our knowledge about orthognathic surgery.

Even if it will be held as a virtual event, let’s breathe the atmosphere of our symposium together, which is one of the most colorful and educational activities of our society.

As the Turkish Orthodontic Society Board of Directors, we are sending our sincere respects to all our colleagues, invited speakers and our sponsors who will attend our international symposium and our symposium organizing secretariat.

Looking forward to meeting you in our symposium.

Best regards.

Prof. Dr. Müge AKSU
President of Turkish Orthodontic Society

Dear Colleagues,

The 17th symposium organized biennially by the Turkish Orthodontic Society will be held online this year on 28 and 29 November 2021.

Unfortunately due to ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we are not able to find a chance to meet physically in our symposium this year. So we are preparing an online scientific program which will enable to share new scientific and technological developments while discussing the current diagnosis and treatment methods with contributions of esteemed speakers. The scientific studies of our country will also take place as oral and e-poster presentations

Biomechanics will be the center line of Symposium. We are planning to theoretically discuss the topics that are increasingly taking larger places in orthodontics every day on the basis of digital dentistry thanks to the period of rapidly developing technology and a fast transition. We are planning to present you the novel updates on diagnosis and treatment with contributions of our esteemed speakers. We will undoubtedly feel stronger with your precious supports.

Online oral presentation session will take place in Turkish and English the scientific program. The abstracts can be submitted online via official symposium web site. The submissions of our colleagues from abroad will be welcomed.

We are sure that the symposium will become meaningful with all our supports and contributions.
