Post a comment by Dental Tribune International

BRISBANE, Australia: The Australian Society of Orthodontists’ Foundation for Research and Education (ASOFRE) will play host to many of the specialty’s leading figures on 3 and 4 March at its 2017 Foundation Meeting at the Hilton hotel in Brisbane. The organisers have warmly invited dental practitioners to attend the meeting, which has the theme of “Aesthetics and evidence” this year.

The foundation is the primary organisation for orthodontic research and education in Australia. It aims to foster a collaborative and sharing environment through its biennial Foundation Meetings and provides financial and educational support to Australian universities, students and researchers in the field of orthodontics.

The event’s keynote speaker will be Prof. Henry Fields, the Vig/Williams Endowed Division Chair of Orthodontics at the Ohio State University’s College of Dentistry in the US. Fields’s talk will cover growth modification, smile aesthetics, and orthodontic surgical treatments. In addition, a number of Australian and international researchers will be conducting presentations throughout the two days of the meeting. Those speaking include Dr Prashant Zaveri, Chairman of the Asian Pacific Foundation for Orthodontic Research and Education, and recipient of the Medal of the Order of Australia Dr John Fricker.

The Foundation Dinner on the evening of 3 March is sure to be a highlight, as it will take place in the riverside restaurant of Brisbane’s heritage-listed Customs House.

A discount applies to all of those who register before 4 February 2017. More information on the meeting is available at http://www.themeetingpeople.com.au/asofre2017.
