5th International BUOS Congress

Orthodontists and Maxillofacial Surgeons 

Joint Meeting

With great pleasure and on behalf of the presidents of the 5th Scientific BUOS congress and of the Organizing Committee we would like to invite you to Mechelen for our bi-annual congress.

As the 5th edition needed to be a special one, we organize this 3-day congress together with the Belgian Maxillo-Facial Surgeons.

An Orthodontists and Surgeons Joint Meeting.

This congress will focus on “Stability” after combined Orthodontic/Surgery-treatments and the role of both disciplines on the long term stability. 

Thursday will be the Orthodontic point of view, Friday the Orthodontics/Surgery theme and Saturday will be more focused on the Surgical approach. 

Internationally known experts will give us the best view on this very interesting topic. Prof. Dr. Dimitrios Mavreas, Dr. Katrien Asscherickx, Dr. Dominique Deffrennes, Dr. Björn Ludwig and Dr. Lucia Cevidanes have already confirmed to share their knowledge with us.

On Thursday there will be a very interesting program for our orthodontist assistants, more specifically 'Hygiene in the orthodontic practice' & 'Life-saving acts' (First aid in case of emergency).

On Thursday evening you are invited to the President's Reception and you can register for the Get Together Party on Friday evening.

We hope to see you on this event and enjoy with us the outstanding scientific program, the social events and the assistants program.

With kind regards
