Dear Colleagues,

 I would be honored and happy to welcome you to the 17th International Orthodonti Congress of the Turkish Orthodonty Association, which will take place in Istanbul between 07-11 November 2020.  I'm honored to continue my sceintific journey today as Chairman of the Congress, which was started about 32 years ago, as a participant in 1st Congress at 1988 charied by Professor Filiz PERKÜN. Over the years, the awareness and importance of Orthodontic treatment in society has increased by adapting the technologies to our profession by developing and diversifying treatment methods and products used.

The main focused topics of sessions are; conducted studies on adult Orthodontics, Orthodontics-Periodontology, Skeletal Anchorage and Clear Aligner & İnvisalign. Pre-congress courses will be lead by Cris Chang. As usual, the treatment related our courses will be placed in our program. During the sessions, the esteemed speakers will share their best practices and sceintific information with us via their lectures,their scientific communiqués and their poster presentations. As Orhan VELİ describes in the his verses of "I listen to Istanbul , with closed eyes", at the beautiful wind of fall; We want to share life-filled euphoria of Ancient Istanbul, Bosphorus, Grand Bazaar, Mansions and the historical magical atmosphere, while creating new friendships and having unforgetable moments with all of you.

I would like to thank all our friends for their contribution to the congress' related organizations. Also, I present my love and respect to our colleagues that have honored us with their participation and companies that have supported us by participating in the organization.

Looking forward to meet you in Istanbul

Prof. Dr. Bilgin GİRAY
Chairman of Congress

Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing the XVII. International Congress of Turkish Orthodontics Association 7th through 11th of November, 2020.  We selected İstanbul as the Congress city that the Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk defined as "the summary of our history and civilization" and Atatürk bid farewell to eternity on November 10, 1938.

The theme of the symposium is “Orthodontics from 7 to 77” with the influence of Baris Manco who was an admirer of Istanbul and loved my children and who stay as children for a lifetime.  Under this title, we wanted to focus on “adult orthodontics” and “orthodontics-periodontology collaboration” for the treatment of our adult patients whose awareness has increase due to the irresistible rise of social media and “selfies”.

The other topics are “skeletal anchorage units” that we use to minimize extra-oral applications, anchorage losses and patient compliance and orthodontic treatment with “clear aligners”. We believe that we will have the opportunity to refresh our knowledge and follow the innovations with the courses, conferences, oral and poster presentations to be held on these subjects.

I believe that visiting Istanbul in November will be very pleasant for all our members. On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Turkish Orthodontic Society, I invite you to this scientific meeting that excites us with its theme and location.

We would sincerely like to thank the distinguished keynote speakers, oral and poster research presenters who will share their experiences and knowledge with us, the scientific and organization committees, sponsor companies and our congress organization company for their valuable contribution.


With my kindest regards,

Prof. Dr. Ayşe Tuba ALTUĞ
President of the Turkish Orthodontic Society
