SIDO President

Mauro Cozzani

MOIP President

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

several new features are planned for the SIDO International Congress.

We have decided, in agreement with almost all the orthodontic scientific societies and various dental scientific societies, to concentrate the congress activities on Florence, and on the SIDO congress, respecting a "standstill" period of 30 days before and 30 days after the congress. In this way, the Italian orthodontic world will meet in Florence practically in its entirety.

In summary, we will have the following orthodontic scientific societies (some have already signed the agreement, others are about to sign): AIdOr, ASIO, ADSC, SIBOS, AIOL, SIAlign, for the orthodontic societies; we will also have scientific societies of disciplines that have a close relationship with orthodontics, including:

  • SIMSO (Italian Society of Dental Sleep Medicine),
  • EADSM (European Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine),
  • SICMF (Italian Society of Maxillofacial Surgery).
  • SILPS (Italian Society for the Study and Treatment of Cleft Lip and Palate and Craniomaxillofacial Malformations),
  • AIGeDO (Italian Association of Gnathology and Orofacial Pain),
  • SIOF (Italian Society of Forensic Dentistry) and the “support” of SIOI (Italian Society of Pediatric Dentistry) and SIDCO (Italian Society of Oral Surgery).

The cherry on the cake for Saturday and Sunday is the 8th Congress of the MOIP (Mediterranean Orthodontic Integration Project), whose president is the SIDO junior past president Prof. Letizia Perillo.

Sessions dedicated to Dental Hygienists, Orthodontic Technicians and Dental Assistants will also be held.

The number of congress days has increased from 3 to 4. The SIDO congress sessions will cover Friday, while we will have pre- and post-congress courses and the congresses of orthodontic societies on Thursday and Sunday.

There will be an unmissable social evening on Saturday so that we can all have fun together.

The schedule of the days, and the topics that will be dealt with, are as follows:


Congresses of other orthodontics societies of and pre congress courses
