SIDO and AIDOr are the most prestigious scientific societies in the Italian orthodontic scene. This project aims at breaking down barriers, creating meeting points and joining forces in order to offer our members the opportunity to update their skills without wasting time and money. The Congress will be characterised by a Programme for Young Orthodontists, specifically devoted to scientific initiatives that are tailor-made for young members. There will also be recreational activities to promote interpersonal contacts. We are also working to obtain a credit line on favourable terms for all members, in particular for young members wishing to start their own practices. And last but not least, this year SIDO will organise some Study Clubs aimed at presenting and discussing orthodontic as well as multidisciplinary clinical cases. We hope that some of the Study Clubs will be organised together with SIdP. We have plenty of projects in our pipeline and will keep you posted via our Sidonews.
