You are cordially invited to attend and participate at this conference. The theme of this conference is “ENHANCING DENTOFACIAL AESTHETICS and FUNCTION”.
We have invited many internationally renowned faculties to participate at this scientific conference. This will provide a forum for the delegates and participants to enhance their knowledge and skills, share experiences and interact with specialists in their respective fields. It will also be an occasion to make new acquaintances and renew old friendships.

Delegates from overseas will also have an opportunity to savour the varied cuisine, culture and scenery of our beautiful Sri Lanka. BBC Good Food team has named Sri Lankan cuisine as the No.1 trending cuisine in 2019 on their list. Sri Lanka has claimed the top spot in the world’s leading travel guide, the Lonely Planet as the best travel destination in 2019. Endless beaches, timeless ruins, welcoming people, oodles of elephants, rolling surf, cheap prices, fun trains, famous tea and flavourful food make Sri Lanka irresistible.

In addition to the thought-provoking scientific programme, our partners in the orthodontic trade will join us in exhibiting their advanced products and services to cater to the needs of the delegates.

Message from the Chairperson of the Scientific Committee

My dear Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure and a deep sense of pride to release this message on the theme “ Enhancing Dentofacial Aesthetics and functions.” for our forthcoming Orhodontic Conference 2020. We have organized a very carefully planned program to suit our theme and have a line of foreign and local speakers to speak to us on the most current advances in Orthodontics.

With this theme, this Congress can only be described as a work of passion and the culmination of the long time dedication, commitment and drive that we as the congress organizing committee have put in to it.

We have not only worked hard but smart to achieve this standard. The speakers’ list which boasts the “ Who’ s Who” in orthodontics promises nothing less than the best of what orthodontics has to offer only academically but also on the clinical front is proof of this. The most touching point for us was that all the speakers agreed to come and offer the support, give us there encouragement and be present to share with all of us the many decades of orthodontic experience between them – without any conditions attached.

I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the speakers from overseas and our own who will in great measure update the participants and induce in them a lot of fresh thinking on the road of perfection.
I wish to thank everyone in the organizing committee for all their efforts to make this event a success.
