EAS announces its “stellar” line up for the Spring Meeting in Venice

The European Aligner Society has just announced what it describes as "a truly stella" line-up for its Spring Meeting, which will take place in Venice, Italy, on 29-31 March 2019 at the Hilton Molino Stucky Hotel.

Building on the success of its most recent meeting which attracted over 600 European delegates the Society has put together a progressive programme to explore rapid advances in technologies and techniques related to aligner orthodontics.

The two-day meeting will draw together the latest innovations presented by an International line-up of expert speakers. Day one kicks off with a forum dedicated to highlighting new technologies applied to aligner orthodontics and progress to a series of hands on workshops to allow delegates to apply their learnings.

A second day of lectures will cover topics ranging from 3D diagnosis and the effective use of 3D data, to biomechanic principles applied to aligner orthodontics and the management of open bite and asymmetries with aligners.

The programme curators have also included lectures to address increased interest regarding the application of aligner orthodontics in teenagers – as well as digital smile design and how to integrate it into a virtual treatment planning.
