Table Bay Hotel





Welcome to the SASO Congress 2018 at The Table Bay Hotel, Cape Town

We are proud to welcome you back to Cape Town. Spring is a wonderful time of year. The Mother City is notorious for its unpredictable weather and often we can really have four seasons in one day. However, this is the time when temperatures start to rise and Cape Town bursts into colour. If you care to venture up the West Coast, you can experience our world famous flower season when the fields become carpeted with a plethora of colours of the wild flowers.

We are honoured to have Dr Daniela Storino, our keynote speaker. Prepare to be captivated by her presentations of cutting edge principles in orthodontic treatment including MEAW (multi-looped edgewise archwire), GEAW (gummetal edgewise archwire), condylography, management of TMD, MOPS (micro-osteoperforation) and other modalities.

In keeping with our season of Spring, we have a colourful lineup of guest speakers. They are Mr KC Makhubele, CEO of SADA, Dr Inkwon Park of South Korea, Dr Harry Dougherty Jnr of California and Mr Henrik Brandt of Denmark and Dr Mark Wertheimer of South Africa.

I invite you to come and enjoy a wonderful three days at SASO 2018 and treat yourself to an extra few days to enjoy the sights and sounds of Cape Town.

Dr Sharad Cara
President, South African Society of Orthodontists
