On behalf of the Federal executive and the organising committees of the Australasian Osseointegration Society, it is with much pleasure that I invite you to attend our 11th Biennial Conference, to be held in Melbourne from the 3rd - 5th May 2018.

The meeting is a mechanism for dental clinicians, academic researchers and industry partners to come together to promote dental implant treatment modalities, evaluate emerging research, technology and techniques, and share new ideas, in order to improve current procedural techniques for all.

Planning is well underway for a full 3-day program to stimulate the interests of a wide range of clinicians' experience, and our industry sponsors and partners will be putting together an excellent trade display where you can meet and discuss the latest developments in materials and instrumentation for successful clinical practice. Our speakers will include academic researchers and expert clinicians, with highly regarded international speakers and invited local speakers who are experts in their respective fields coming to speak on a variety of topics including treatment planning, surgery, restoration and maintenance.

Of course there will be a number of social events to mix with colleagues including a welcoming drinks event and a grand dinner. Being based in the Southbank area of Melbourne, there are many restaurants and bars for catching up with friends, industry representatives and other colleagues.

 We hope you can join us in May, 2018.

DCD (Prosthodontics), BDSc
