OPORTO, Portugal: The European Aligner Society (EAS), in conjunction with the Sociedade Portuguesa de Alinhadores Dentários (Portuguese aligner society), will be holding its summer meeting in Oporto from 1 to 2 July at the Hilton Porto Gaia hotel. The event is expected to attract 350 participants and will offer a day of lectures and a day of hands-on courses.

The meeting will be held under the theme “ALIGNERS AND 3D PLANNING: FROM VIRTUAL TO REAL” as an in-person event. However, the lecture programme will be livestreamed for dental professionals who are neither EU nor UK residents.

The lecture programme will be presented by eight international experts, including Dr Victoria Martin from Germany, who will be sharing her routine on virtual planning, and Dr Bruno Filipe Almeida Gomes from Portugal, whose lecture will focus on movement predictability in treatment planning. In addition, Dr Pedro Costa Monteiro from Portugal will be presenting on Invisalign with mandibular advancement in Class II malocclusions and Dr Manuel Roman from Spain will be giving tips and tricks for virtual treatment planning for open bite and Class III malocclusions. After the lectures, attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions to all of the speakers in a discussion and Q & A session.

To allow attendees to apply the knowledge gained on the first day, the second day of the meeting is dedicated to practical workshops and in-depth courses, which will be delivered by two of the lecture presenters as well as by clinical and technological experts from some of the leading aligner and treatment planning companies.

For the welcome reception, attendees will be invited to a winery close to the venue to experience Oporto’s famous port wine.

Participating in the summer meeting will provide 19 hours of continuing education.

Attendees are invited to submit research abstracts, which will be used for e-poster presentations during the event.

More information on the programme, registration, the official conference app and how to submit abstracts is available at www.eas-aligners.com/2nd-summer-meeting-porto-2022.
