Greetings from Bangkok

Dear  colleagues and honorable members,

            On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to extend a cordial invitation to the 7th World Society of Lingual Orthodontics(WSLO) Congress. The meeting will be held from June 29th through July 1st, 2017 at Anoma Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand, under the theme of "Global Innovation and Practical Concept for Aesthetic Orthodontic Treatment". Reflecting the growing interest in lingual orthodontics among the leading orthodontists in the world, various lingual brackets and supporting systems have become in use. In addition to the conventional fixed appliances, recent advances include CAD/CAM systems for the fabrication of the individualized appliances, various self-ligating lingual brackets and combined use of skeletal anchorage devices.

            Lingual braces applied to surgical cases and juvenile patients are also an extension of the scope. In view of the latest trends in this field, it is now the time for us to envision the future of lingual orthodontics, as an important boost for further professional and scientific development in this area. We are sure that this meeting will inspire the participants to facilitate the lingual orthodontic treatment in our daily practice and also spread and share the idea among professionals.           

           Bangkok is not only the capital city of Thailand, but the cultural and industrial hub city in Asia, where you can have plenty of amusements, from the most traditional heritages to the most cutting-edge technologies. I hope you will enjoy the night markets, magnificent shopping malls and newly built cultural centers. For those who have visited Bangkok, the updated feature of the city will be even more stunning. 

            The WSLO has not only been an academic meeting, but also an important occasion to share the friendship among the members and colleagues. The 7th WSLO meeting will provide exciting memories during the reception and Gala dinner. 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Bangkok, at the 7th WSLO Congress. Hope to see you all.

Warm regard

Professor Amonpong Vachiramon
