XXIV ABOFM scientific meeting - diagnosis, planning and treatment strategies seen through the transdisciplinarity

Web Congress

A GREAT ONLINE EVENT, translated to ENGLISH and SPANISH, will happen simultaneously with the face-to-face event on the 29th, 30th, and 31st of August.

The central theme of our meeting will be "TRANSDISCIPLINARITY", a current trend in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. We will welcome to the stage FIVE OF THE WORLD'S MOST EMINENT PROFESSIONALS, each of whom will lecture on their areas of expertise: Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Orthodontics, and Functional Orthopedics. They will perform LIVE ANALYSIS of clinical cases in order to establish the sequence of priority treatments for each case.

In addition, seven of the world's best functional orthopedists will be discussing scientifically based MYTHS AND FACTS about controversial issues in Functional Jaw Orthopedics, such as: "The mandible does not grow with orthopedic appliances - MYTH OR FACT". Dentists, Physiotherapists, and Prosthetists will give a WORLD-CLASS PERFORMANCE OF CLINICAL CASES AND CRUCIAL TIPS, analyzing current topics such as "3D Models for the Manufacture of Functional Orthopedic Appliances" and "When or not to treat Articular Disc Disorders using Functional Jaw Orthopedics ", and more. Lastly, we will also count with a course taught by Prof. MARIANO ROCABADO, a world-renowned psysiotherapist. This will include MANY NEW FEATURES related to the integration of Physiotherapy and Dentistry. Check out the professionals and themes of our conference in the SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM, which was prepared with great care and affection to add cutting-edge knowledge to professionals like you!!!
