I would like to welcome you to the 93rd Congress of the European Orthodontic Society. It is a great honour and pleasure for me and our Organizing Committee to host this event in Switzerland, 34 years since it was last held in the country.
The scientific programme is focused on the alveolar envelope as the limit to orthodontic tooth movement, bringing into extensive discussion the different treatment strategies that are currently undertaken to expand the anatomical limits. Moreover, time will be devoted to the presentation of new scientific and clinical developments in a variety of other important topics. Excellent keynote speakers, who specialize in the congress topics, will critically analyse these subjects followed by short presentations of new research data.
In the era of globalized online information, our congress aims not only to provide new scientific information but also to bring together researchers and clinicians from all over the world and to establish long-lasting collaborations and friendships.
The Montreux Riviera, with its mild climate, the Mediterranean vegetation, the terraced vineyards and the close proximity to Lake Geneva and the Alps, is the ideal place for such an event. We truly hope that the combination of an interesting scientific programme and an attractive social programme will make this meeting unforgettable.
WELCOME TO MONTREUX!
