LONDON, UK: The biggest event for all UK dental professionals with an interest in the orthodontic specialty will be held in the heart of the capital this year at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster. The theme for the 2018 British Orthodontic Conference (BOC), which is taking place from 27 to 29 September, is “Orthodontics 360°”. The programme promises to provide a focus on every aspect of orthodontics, including interdisciplinary care.

Lined up for 2018 are highly rated international and UK speakers, including Dr David Sarver, Dr Elizabeth Menzel, Prof. Federico Hernández Alfaro, Dr David Birnie and Dr Nicola Atack. Also topping the bill is Prof. Martyn Cobourne, who will be giving the prestigious Northcroft Memorial Lecture. An exciting new addition, the OrthoTED session (Technology, Education and Design), will offer a range of dynamic 15-minute presentations.

The BOC social events are always very popular, and this year the gala reception, which is free to all congress registrants, will be held at Church House in Westminster. Each year, the conference is organised by a committee of British Orthodontic Society members, and this year, Director of Professional Development Dr Richard Jones is heading the team for the third time. “The three-day conference reflecting orthodontics in its entirety is ambitious, but we are aiming high. We have a host of renowned international and UK speakers, a pre-conference course focusing on the core CPD [continuing professional development] topic of cross-infection control, exciting social events, a two-day programme dedicated to our DCP [dental care professional] colleagues and a practice development day,” he said.

More information can be found on the website of the British Orthodontic Society.
