This fall, FORESTADENT will be hosting two events in Paris: the third FORESTADENT Symposium and the first International 2D® Lingual User Meeting.

Users of the 2D Lingual bracket system will have a chance to share theirexperiences at the 2D Lingual User Meeting on September 23. Speakers atthe meeting will include Vittorio Cacciafesta, DDS, MSc, PhD, and ElieAmm, DCD, DES.

"The Aesthetic Smile" will be the main topic of the third FORESTADENT Symposium, which will take place on September 24 and 25.

In his talk "Much Ado About Facial Esthetics—Extractions, Expansion, and Early Treatment Controversies," Jay Bowman, DMD, MSD, (pictured) will put the aesthetic significance of extraction and nonextraction strategies forward for discussion. In the discussion he will attempt to present evidence-based recommendations on this often controversial subject.

Adriano G. Crismani, DDS, will explain to what extent opening gaps during orthodontic treatment of missing teeth in adolescence and interdisciplinary treatment provides an optimal solution for a long-lasting perfect smile.

The venue for both events will be "Les Salons de la Maison des Arts & MÉtiers" between the Arc de Triumph and the Eiffel Tower in the center of Paris. The social program will include a dinner cruise on the Seine, a disco party, and a golf tournament.
