Clinical Efficiency
AXA Auditorium

Organized by:
It is a great pleasure to announce the tenth anniversary of the BCNOrtho meeting. This edition will be full of clinical techniques and advice based on the many years of experience of our lecturers. Digital orthodontics is already here, and many advances in three-dimensional imaging, design, and printing make this technology very useful in our offices. Through the lessons learned over the last ten years we will paint a picture of the next ten years of orthodontic “state of the art” advances. We hope to see you in Barcelona to celebrate our tenth anniversary.
