Welcome to 55th IOC

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum

Welcome to 55th IOC

We welcome you to 55th Indian Orthodontic conference which to be held in Amritsar during 2020.

The conference will embrace clinical and research philosophies, percussions and the latest trends in the field of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.


9th International Orthodontic Congress

Dear Colleagues,
It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 9th International Orthodontic Congress (IOC) of the World Federation of Orthodontists which will be held in Yokohama, Japan in October 2020.

We believe that holding the 9th IOC, for the first time in Asia, will be an excellent opportunity to share the latest knowledge and outcomes in the clinical and basic sciences of our profession under the integrated theme, “Broadening the Vision in Orthodontics: Orthodontics as the starting point for health science”. It is noteworthy that the 12th Asian Pacific Orthodontic Conference will be co-hosted with the 9th IOC. This will be an ideal opportunity for orthodontists and oral care professionals to get together from around the world for the benefit of orthodontic patients.

The Local Organizing Committee has been established and is preparing attractive programs to meet the high expectations of speakers, delegates, participants and accompanying persons. We have chosen Pacifico Yokohama as the venue, as it offers a large space to meet the needs of an international convention. The facilities include the National Convention Hall of Yokohama, the Conference Center, the Exhibition Hall and the Hotel.

The infrastructure around the city of Yokohama, only a 30-minute ride from Tokyo, will be greatly expanded and refurbished along with the holding of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic games in the summer. October in Yokohama is the best season to enjoy good food, the arts, festivals and live music as the autumn season begins.

Please save the dates of October 4-7, 2020 in your diary. Come to Japan and experience for yourself the world-renowned welcoming hospitality

Takashi Ono
Chairman, 9th IOC
