51st Anniversary Meeting of the
Australasian Begg Society of Orthodontists


It is my pleasure to invite you to the next meeting of the Australasian Begg Society of Orthodontists to be held on Hamilton Island from 20 to 22 July 2017.

ABSO meetings embrace all clinical philosophies, persuasions and techniques and invitations are open to all registered orthodontists and post-graduate students across the globe.

The theme for the meeting is 'complexity in treatment' in orthodontics and our keynote speakers will be Dr Chris Chang, Taiwan; Dr Junji Sugawara, Japan; and Dr James Jasper, USA. These speakers will lead a vibrant scientific program with a broad range of presenters from academia and clinical practice. Social interaction is an important component of learning and the social program will cater for all.

The ABSO continues to support our post graduate researchers and future specialist clinicians and encourage their participation in the camaraderie of the orthodontic profession. Furthermore, the presentations of post-graduate research are a plus for orthodontists in clinical practice to continue their learning for contemporary practice.

The committee of the ABSO looks forward to seeing you on Hamilton Island as an escape from the southern winter temperatures and the promise of a friendly, informative and fun meeting.
