Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

The Association of Philippine Orthodontists (APO) will be hosting the 11th Asian Pacific Orthodontic Conference with the theme Culture of Smiles on March 5, 6 & 7 2018 in the beautiful island of Boracay! This will be our very first international orthodontic congress in the Philippines and we are expecting delegates from 18 Asian Pacific Orthodontic Society (APOS) Affliate Societies to attend.

The organizing committee of APOC 2018 promises to make this once in a lifetime event an affair to remember. We are flying in 16 renowned orthodontic speakers from all over the world to grace this event. We will also be having a pre-conference Resident’s Forum where orthodontic students can actively participate in plus poster presentations and a trade exhibit to cater to all of your orthodontic needs. Included in the congress fee are social events for all delegates such as a “fiesta themed” opening ceremony, a breathtaking beachside gala dinner / luau and an entertaining closing ceremony.

Because of the importance of this event and to ensure that it is accessible and affordable to everyone who needs to be here, we will be giving REDUCED CONFERENCE RATES and EASY PAYMENT SCHEMES to our local delegates and special GROUP RATES to our foreign guests. We will also be inviting abstract submissions, and hope that all delegates will take the opportunity to share their research, knowledge and experience.

As host country we are excited to showcase to our foreign delegates from across the globe our warm hospitality and local talents. Not only will this be an opportunity for continued learning but also for some rest and relaxation with colleagues, friends and family amidst the beautiful setting of Boracay.

I therefore encourage all orthodontic practitioners and students to come join us in APOC 2018 and to be a part of the biggest event in Philippine Orthodontic history.

Chairman, Organizing Committee, 11th APOC
