It is our great pleasure to announce that The 4th International Congress & The 70th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Orthodontic Society will accept applications for moderators as described as follows:

Purpose of RTD

Since 1998, every Round Table Discussion (RTD) has been annually providing opportunities for those engaged in research, education, and clinical practice at universities, as well as private doctors and many others committed to medicine, to participate in mutual communications covering a wide range of topics regarding orthodontic treatment. Unlike lectures and exhibition presentations, the RTD serves as an opportunity for participants to enjoy frank discussion on themes selected by moderators, and to build a network of contacts. The RTD annually addresses (approximately 10) themes of interest, and features deep and enthusiastic discussions among members, in the hope that the event will make itself as beneficial to the members as possible.

The situation surrounding the dentistry profession is growing increasingly severe, as indicated by technological innovation in dental treatment, the reform of medical service systems, and the diversification of patient needs. We believe that, amidst this, it is necessary to always examine how to provide orthodontic treatment with consideration given to the viewpoint of the general public, while paying attention to activities and trends in foreign countries. With this as a background, we would like to hold an RTD that will draw interest from as many members as possible. The 70th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Orthodontic Society is to be held as an international event, with the RTD scheduled for two days. To encourage the active participation of moderators from abroad, the RTD will have a table with English as the official language. Also, we are requesting active participation of the various committees of the Japanese Orthodontic Society. In an effort to ensure that the RTD will offer informative and significant programs, we truly look forward to your participation.
