Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 16th International Congress of Turkish Orthodontic Society which will be held in Izmir, Turkey from the 13th – 17th October 2018.
The congress will cover clinical issues that we face in our everyday practice and will present latest advancements of our field. The main topics of the congress are: open bite treatment, orthognatic surgery, skeletal anchorage, TME and digital orthodontics. There will be key note speakers from around the world who will share their expertise and research. I would also like to inform you that the 2nd scientific meeting of Young Turkish Orthodontic Society will take place on the first day of our congress (October 13th). During the congress, you can visit the exhibition hall of orthodontics and dental supplies. After the congress, you will have the option to participate in pre and post congress courses.
I also invite you to take the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Izmir, a modern metropolis in Turkey. Izmir is known as the pearl of the Aegean region. It is Turkey’s third largest city. There are lots of wonderful places to visit in the vicinity of Izmir if you are interested in experiencing the local culture. Many great ancient empires, such as Lydians, Persians, Romans, and Ottomans, have seen their empires rise and fall between the walls of Izmir. People of Izmir are very welcoming and they are famous with their hospitality.

I hope you will have a great experience and lasting memories during the congress.
Please save the dates of October 13th – 17th 2018 in your agenda. I am looking forward to meeting you in Izmir.
Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Serpil Hazar
Congress President
