Welcome Message

THANK YOU  to our members and auxiliary staff who attended this year's very successful conference at the Millennium Hotel in Queenstown.  And a special, most sincere thanks to our loyal supporters (sponsors and exhibitors), without their support we could not run such a fabulous event.  If you have any feedback at all please email your comments to the Event Manager, We all look forward to meeting you again in 2019.  


 It is my pleasure and privilege, on behalf of the Organising Committee to invite you to attend the NEW ZEALAND ASSOCIATION OF ORTHODONTISTS' CONFERENCE in QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand, 29 MARCH TO 1 APRIL 2017.
The meeting will be held in the adjacent MILLENIUM and COPTHORNE HOTELS.

We are delighted to advise that we have two internationally acknowledged keynote speakers in Professors Kevin O'Brien and Sunil Kapila (from Manchester, England and San Francisco respectively). They are world renowned for researching evidence for best clinical practice, and we eagerly anticipate their presentations.

We expect most New Zealand Orthodontists to attend, and will no doubt attract overseas delegates. There will also be a parallel staff programme.

Queenstown is a destination, and the two social functions include a dinner at the Skyline venue at the top of the gondolas, as well as a boat trip on the "SS Earnslaw" and dinner at Walter Peak Station. We encourage you to take advantage of the many other attractions that Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and Central Otago have to offer. Queenstown is accessed by air from most northern New Zealand cities, and there are many direct flights daily to Queenstown from Australia.

We welcome and encourage you to attend our biennial conference. Further information is available on this website.

We look forward to you joining us in QUEENSTOWN in March.

Kind regards,

Alan Isaac
