Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to the 16th International Symposium which will be held in Bodrum between 2-5 November 2019 by the Turkish Orthodontics Association.

With esthetics becoming an important part in our daily practice, the problems we frequently encounter as well as the most recent developments in our profession will be taken into account in our symposium’s topics, which are: orthodontic treatment with clear aligners, lingual orthodontics, retention and stability. We will have valuable speakers from different countries of the world to share their experiences and research with us. In addition, the third meeting of the Young Turkish Orthodontic Society will be held on the first day of the symposium. During the symposium, you can visit the exhibition area and attend the courses before and after the symposium.

We invite you to discover Bodrum, one of the most beautiful towns of our country with its climate, sea, natural beauties, magnificent bays and history. Bodrum has fascinated mankind from the ages before Christ, with its antiquity, traces of various cultures and civilizations such as Caria, Leleges, Persian, Dorian, Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman. Known as Halikarnassos in the old periods, Bodrum houses the narrow streets leading down to the sea, the glorious Bodrum houses and the famous Bodrum Castle.

We hope you will leave our symposium with beautiful memories. Please note the dates of November 2-5 2019 in your agendas. Hope to see you in Bodrum.

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Ali Vehbi TUNCER
Symposium President


Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing the XVI. International Symposium of Turkish Orthodontics Association in Bodrum, Muğla from 2nd through 5th of November, 2019. The theme of the symposium is “The Invisible Face of Orthodontics”. Under this title, we wanted to focus on the orthodontic treatment with “clear aligners”, “lingual orthodontics” with non-visible brackets and “stability” with retention appliances and lingual retainers, which are the secret heroes of our treatments. 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.
