This year’s event promises to be the professional highlight of the year for anyone carrying out or involved with orthodontics – with a host of UK and international experts lined up to speak.
Professor Kevin O’Brien will talk about making sense of the latest orthodontic research and how it can be used to improve clinical practice; other highlights will include Professor Ted Eliades discussing new orthodontic materials, while Professor Martyn Cobourne and Dr Andrew Dibiase will examine the evidence behind technologies which claim to speed up treatments.
One of the most renowned and respected researchers and speakers, Professor Bill Proffit, is making British Orthodontic Conference (BOC) 2014 his only European engagement this year.
The conference will take place from Thursday 18 September until Saturday 20 September 2014, at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
The programme is designed to appeal to all dental professionals, whether in full-time specialist practice, or general dental practice.
There will also be a pre-conference course on disinfection and decontamination on Wednesday 17 September 2014, which is open to all dental professionals.
Delegates will have an opportunity to hear experts in their field, browse the latest products and technologies and socialise with colleagues.
A gala reception will be held at the National Museum of Scotland on Thursday evening and there will be a dinner at the Sheraton Grand Hotel on the Friday evening, showcasing the best of Scottish culture and food.
Specialist orthodontist, and conference committee representative, Guy Deeming said: ‘This year’s conference offers an exciting and varied agenda, which has something for every member of the dental team, including for the first time a dedicated programme for key support staff such as receptionists or treatment coordinators.
‘It’s the one place where dental nurses, orthodontic therapists, technicians, general dentists and orthodontists can come together to hear the latest treatment advances in the context of the best available evidence.
