1st EAS Congress, Vienna, Austria

13 February 16 14 February 16
Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to invite you to the 1st European Aligner Society (EAS) Congress to be held in Vienna, Austria on the 13th and 14th February 2016.
EAS was formed in 2014 by aligner provider colleagues from 5 major European countries – Italy, Spain, Germany, France and the UK. EAS was established to bring together all the clinicians and manufacturers who are involved with aligner therapy and use their combined strengths to raise the awareness, the effectiveness and the outcomes of aligner based treatment.
In pursuit of the aims and objectives of EAS, the 1st EAS Congress will feature a full day and a half of lectures by internationally renown orthodontists who have a variety of interests in aligner therapy. EAS will also have workshops on intra-oral scanning, 3D scanning and printing and 3D treatment planning

 

This will be a great opportunity to contact colleagues who share an enthusiasm for aligner therapy. Vienna is a beautiful city and as it’s Valentine weekend, EAS will be hosting a “Valentine” dinner on the Saturday night. So bring your loved ones for a romantic and intellectual weekend (or even long weekend). There is much to do and see in Vienna and being in the “centre” of Europe, its accessibility is perfect. For all the details, www.eas-aligners.com and see for yourself the “who’s who” of aligner therapy. Registration is now open so reserve a place as there is a limit on numbers.

Welcome to EAS Vienna 2016.

Dr. Graham Gardner
President of the European Aligner Society
 
 
ON LINE registration deadline for the 1st EAS Congress is January 31, 2016. After that date only ON SITE registrations will be possible, but ONLY if seats are available since space is LIMITED. An extra charge of 50 € will be applied for on site registrations.
