4th Scientific Conference for Aligner Orthodontics

18–19 November 2016 in Cologne/Germany

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the fourth scientific conference of the German Association for Aligner Orthodontics e.V. (DGAO) here in Cologne.

We are delighted that you chose to accept our invitation. Many of you have already attended our previous conferences, and indeed, quite a few of you have yet to miss out on any of our conferences at all. There are probably several reasons for this, however, the two most important are likely to be the exciting presentations and the relaxed atmosphere with our comprehensive trade exhibition and attractive accompanying events.

Once again, all those responsible have done their utmost to make this conference a resounding success. This has not become easier since the last time, as a new European competitor in aligner events has now arrived on the scene. However, as we all know: competition is good for business. In our case, it was the incentive that we needed to use our decades of experience as well as the relationships that we have established during this time to find the speakers who can provide your practice with the greatest gains in terms of knowledge - with the focus this year on the practical use of aligner systems.

We therefore hope that our efforts will meet your expectations and would be delighted if this were the case. We would like to wish you a warm welcome and look forward to your valuable contribution in public discussions and in person at our conference.

Prof. em. Dr. Rainer-Reginald Miethke Dr. Julia Haubrich
(President of the DGAO e.V.) (Conference chairwoman)
