After only a couple of months since the announcement of its launch The European Aligner Society is already celebrating several exciting milestones as it progresses towards fulfilling its initial aims. The Society was created to provide continuing information about developments in clear aligner therapy, and develop a strong backup to the formal training that takes place at postgraduate level.
As an over-arching members’ Association, EAS aims to provide membership services which will form the basis of the ‘aligner’ community; provide support to members; offer advice and guidance; and make resources available to support and develop education in clear aligner therapy. This is an invitation to join us and be involved with an Association which is solely for aligner providers and those interested in becoming aligner providers.
The European Aligner Society (EAS) would like to welcome you to an Association that will build into a community of all things “ALIGNER”. – Graham Gardner, EAS President
The EAS will formally launch at the World Federation of Orthodontists Congress at Excel in London between 27-30 September 2015. Potential members are invited to visit stand 548 to meet the Society founders and sign up.
It has just been announced that the EAS’ inaugural conference – Aligners, a clear new era in orthodontics – will take place in Vienna on 13-14 February 2016. The directors of the Society have put together a programme of lectures and workshops led by some of the world’s foremost aligner exponents. A full programme will be available at the WFO meeting.
Excitingly, as part of its remit to provide education in aligner therapy, the EAS’ first live one-hour webinar ‘Aligner Therapy and Biomechanics’ was presented by the Society President Dr Graham Gardener in mid-June. This can now be viewed free of charge on the education page of the EAS website www.eas-aligners.com/education.
The Society has also attracted support from a number of the aligner companies including Align Technology.
Membership of EAS is open now. As an incentive to clinicians to support EAS as early as possible, subscription for the first year will only require renewal a year after the formal launch – September 2016.
