Organized by:
Orthodontics as a specialty is evolving. Today, more than ever, is important that we gather as a community of specialists and commit to quality at all levels: from diagnostics to treatment delivery, and prevention of future problems in terms of maintenance of results and aging process. At this challenging time, it is important for orthodontists to think about the future role of the orthodontist and how we can use new technology to improve and maintain quality in orthodontic treatment outcomes. We hope to see you in Barcelona to celebrate our seventh BCNOrtho meeting in 12 years, this time dedicated to our mentor and friend Dr. William R. Proffit.
Best regards,
Dan Grauer
