It is with great pleasure and anticipation, that the Academy of Osseointegration can announce the second meeting of the Japanese Charter Chapter.
It will be two years since the inaugural meeting, which was a great success, and our thanks and appreciation go to the Japanese Ambassador of the Academy, Takashi Sumi, for once again organising what will certainly be a meeting that will exceed the scientific and educational content of even the 2015 event.
This time, Dr Sumi has arranged a 2-day conference, titled ‘AO - Into the Next Generation’ and will be divided into four sessions. The subject of each session will be anterior aesthetics, a surgical track, hard and soft tissue management and digital solutions.
Dr Sumi has put together a list, comprising of 15 of the best speakers in Japan, with 2 overseas speakers, Dr Michael Norton, President-Elect of AO and Dr Stephen Jacobs, Chair of the Global Program Development Committee.
Dr Jacobs, who also happens to be on the Certificate and Fellowship Committee, will present ‘Good Morning with AO’, where he will explain the new Certificate and how members can apply for this. The AO Certificate is an award for members who can demonstrate knowledge, education and experience in implant dentistry, and he will show how this is achievable for most AO members, and how to go about it.
We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo, in July 2017.
Dr Stephen Jacobs (Chair, Global Program Development Committee)
Dr Michael Norton (President-Elect)
