It is with a deep sense of pride and honor that I write this message. Sri Lanka Orthodontic Society was inaugurated in 1998 with handful number of Specialists. Since then, SLOS has always been moving forward by promoting excellence in orthodontics through education and research in Sri Lanka. Moreover, SLOS is committed to disseminate scientific and artistic information related to orthodontics particularly through its biennial congress Sri Lanka Orthodontic Conference.
As you may be aware orthodontics is a well established specialty in Sri Lanka. Orthodontics is the prevention and correction of occlusal anomalies, which is intimately related to facial growth and development of the occlusion. In fact, advances in orthodontics have contributed immensely, to the improvement of the overall aesthetics and functional outcomes of our patients and as a well established professional association we are always ready and confident to deliver our services wherever and whenever it is necessary.
SLOS has maintained very close relationship with both local and international sister associations related to the field. SLOS is a full member of Asia Pacific Orthodontic Society and the World Federation of Orthodontics.
As the president of SLOS I would like to express my gratitude to my fellow council members and the members of the SLOS for their unconditional support and enthusiasm in all our activities even during the Covid-19 global pandemic.
