SPRING MEETING

 

The European Aligner Society aims to provide information on orthodontic aligner therapy to clinicians and public through effective communication, and education. Information will be underpinned by promoting high standards in orthodontic aligner treatment and through research.

Welcome message

Following the successful 2nd Congress of the European Aligner Society which took place in Venice a just over 6 months ago, as a sold-out event, the Scientific Committee of EAS received a consensus that 2nd Congress fulfilled its aims and objectives. I now have the pleasure to announce the 2nd Spring Meeting which will take place in Venice, Italy, on March 29-31, 2019.
This scientific event’s aim is to continue along the pathway, which was created in 2016, with the goal of raising the bar of both clinical and scientific content.
An increasing number of colleagues around the world joined the last EAS events thanks to the continuous advancement of all techniques related to aligner orthodontics.

Together with the board we have decided to create an event in which we will start on Friday with a Forum of new technologies applied to aligner orthodontics. Topics in the form of presentations, that should create interest among attendees, will b5e followed by hands on workshops in the Friday pm presented topics on Sunday morning.

The main session will take place on Saturday, where delegates will have the opportunity to listen to expert speakers presenting lectures on topics defined by the EAS Scientific committee, and which will include some of the most interesting fields in orthodontics, from 3D diagnosis and the proper use of 3D data, to biomechanics principles applied to aligner orthodontics, followed by management of open bite and asymmetries with aligners.
The increasing application of aligner orthodontics in teenagers will also find place in the program together with one of the hottest topics, digital smile design and how to integrate it into a virtual treatment planning.

Our commitment is to provide a wide spectrum of information on aligner therapy, providing thus clinicians more confidence on embedding aligner orthodontics in their practice.

EAS wants to express gratitude to the orthodontic aligner industry for their enthusiasm and constant support in helping make EAS as reference and gold standard meeting for aligner orthodontics, so that excellence, best practice and research can be enjoyed and shared not only by EAS members but also by delegates.
EAS will work closely with the companies to ensure that satisfaction is enjoyed by both sides.

Together with the EAS Board I’m looking forward to welcome you again in Venice for another exciting event!

Friday, March 29th 2019
Spring Meeting will start with a full afternoon session of lectures provided by Companies involved with Aligner provision. The lectures will be presented by key clinical speakers from the selected Companies on the basis of Innovative Technologies. Each lecture will last approx. 25 -30 minutes and will provide an introduction to the Innovative Technologies and also act as “a taster” for the associated workshop that will follow on the Sunday morning.
The full attendance Friday afternoon event will be followed by a Welcome Reception in the Exhibition Hall on Friday evening for all delegates registered to Spring Meeting.

Saturday, March 30th 2019
We will host a full days Plenary Session with Speakers having a more extended lecture presentation program. The extended lectures will allow the invited Speakers to go in depth into their particular subjects, rather than the shorter and sharper presentations highlighted at Congress. Delegates will have Saturday evening and night free to enjoy fabulous Venice by night.

Sunday, March 31st 2019
In the morning will be dedicated to Workshops hosted by the Companies who presented lectures on Friday afternoon. The Workshops will either be “hands on” or an in-depth extension of the Friday afternoon lecture. Each Company will present its workshop twice for 2 hours each session so that the maximum number of delegates can attend the workshops of their choice. Registration for the Workshops will take place from Saturday morning following the Friday lecture series and will be available all day Saturday. This will allow delegates to listen to the “taster” lecture and decide on their 2 workshops. Registration for the workshops will be on a “first come, first served” basis.

Spring Meeting will end at lunch-time, approx. 13:00 on Sunday. March 31st, 2019.
