Dear Colleagues,

Today we celebrate World Orthodontic Health Day, May 15 the day on which the World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO) signed the charter to spread the positive message of orthodontics and celebrate worldwide our specialty.

The Romanian Association for Excellence in Orthodontics (AREO), together with the members of the Orthodontic and Dentofacial Orthopedics Department, Faculty of  Dental Medicine, U.M.F. “Grigore T. Popa” Iasi – teachers, and residents – have launched this year the invitation to celebrate with fellow specialists in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, the World Orthodontic Health Day (WOHD).

On this occasion, AREO together with the hosts, colleagues from Iasi, and residents in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from the U.M.F. “Grigore. T. Popa” Iasi, organized on May 14, 2022, an online meeting attended by colleagues from the university centers of Cluj, Craiova, Oradea, Targu Mures, Timisoara, and the Chisinau (Republic of Moldova).

“Orthodontics builds smiles and shapes lives! An orthodontist is a plastic surgeon without a scalpel”…. hopes, doubts, confidence!

Congratulations to all the young residents for their interesting, hard-worked, and generous presentations, proving their real passion for this beautiful specialty of orthodontics.

We were particularly honored to have with us, also this year, dear friends from all over the world, merchant personalities in the field of orthodontics – Prof. Dr. Nikiles Vaid (President of WFO), Dr. Chris Laspos (EOS President 2022), Prof. Dr. Celjana Toti (BAOS President 2022), Prof. Dr. Martina Drevensek (Slovenia), who sent us some thoughts on the occasion of the WHOD celebration, congratulating the young orthodontists from Romania for their involvement in this project initiated by AREO.
