The European Aligner Society, which was formally launched at the International Orthodontic Congress in late September 2015, has announced its inaugural congress. 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 hands-on workshops led by some of the world’s foremost aligner exponents.
Because the congress takes place over 13th and 14th February the President’s Dinner will have a Valentine’s Day theme and delegates are being encouraged to invite their significant others to join them in Vienna for a weekend which celebrates alignment – both clinical and personal!

The European Aligner Society was set up to provide continuing information about developments in clear aligner therapy and create a strong back-up to the formal training which takes place at postgraduate level across the EU.
As a members’ Association, EAS aims to provide a number of services from providing support to members; offering advice and guidance; and making resources available to support and develop education in clear aligner therapy. Together members will form an ‘aligner’ community to learn from one another and grow in confidence as they hone their treatment skills.
