It was exactly ten years ago when the last Congress of the European Society of Lingual Orthodontics (ESLO) met in Germany. During the 2002 Congress, Dirk Wiechmann presented to the public for the first time his revolutionary Incognito ® system, which has now reached worldwide recognition.
Now the ESLO is back again! ESLO President Thomas Drechsler invites the 10th ESLO Congress back to Germany from 28 June to 1 July, 2012. This time the venue is in Frankfurt am Main. Keynote speaker Dirk Wiechmann will introduce the latest developments in the lingual technique. In addition to our renowned German speakers such as Esfandiar Modjahedpour, Björn Ludwig, Benedict Wilmes and lingual expert Woo-Ttum Bittner,, there will be other guest speakers from around the world, including Didier Fillion, Guiseppe Scuzzo, Alain Decker, Kyoto Takemoto, Ryuzo Fukawa, Toshiaki Hiro and Cheol-Ho Paik, to name just a few. It will be an exceptional, interesting and exciting program that will look at current medical science innovations.
Of course we can not forget the social part of the ESLO 2012. There are exclusive venues to visit such as the historic Thun & Taxis Palais (www.palais-frankfurt.com) located in the middle of the shopping district of Frankfurt with its newly renovated designer ballroom. A welcome reception for the Lingual Society will be held on the terrace rooftops of the banking metropolis of the chic Congress Hotel (part of the luxurious Jumeirah hotels) with breathtaking views of the unique skyline. A gala dinner will end the conference in the halls of the famous Senkenberg Natural History Museum. Participants will find themselves speechless as they dine in the same room with a Tyrannosaurus Rex and other dinosaurs dating back 70 million years ago.
"Lingual is Wonderful", is the theme of this year's European Lingual Congress. The President of the German Society of Lingual Orthodontics (DGLO at www.dglo.org) joined with the President of the European Society of Lingual Orthodontics (ESLO at www.eslo-info.org) to examine this rare ELSO occasion in Germany that should not be missed!
All are welcome to participate in the ESLO Congress Frankfurt held from 28 June to 1 July 2012. Those who have not registered, yet, may do so through the ESLO website at www.eslo congress.com. It is not too late!
We are looking forward to you participation and would like to take this opportunity to thank Peter Kohlhas President of the German Society of Lingual Orthodontics, and Thomas Drechsler President of European Society of Lingual Orthodontics, for their support.
