Keynote Speaker

Dr Daniela Storino
Daniela Storino graduated as a dentist in 1995 at the the prestigious School of Dentistry of Piracicaba - UNICAMP, which is acknowledged as one of the best in Brazil and renowned for its excellence at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Latin America. She went on to graduate as a specialist in orthodontics in 2000 in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Sao Paulo - FOUSP / FUNDECTO. She has been in private orthodontic practice since then, as well as being a course co-ordinator, instructor, and clinical professor for various mini-residency programs in UPS, as well as other Universities, and in other countries. After some 12 years in practice, she decided that she wished to treat her own son, a brachyfacial skeletal Cl III, without a face mask. She also wished to raise the level of excellence of her treatment and enrolled in various programs around the world in this pursuit. This journey led her to the courses conducted by Professors Sadao Sato in Japan and Rudolf Slavicek in Vienna, both giants in their respective disciplines. She has lectured at the prestigious Vienna School of Interdisciplinary Dentistry (VieSID), where she is an instructor, and where presentations are subjected to the most rigorous scientific scrutiny. She has also lectured extensively all over the world. In her private practice in Brazil she has become renowned for treating the most difficult of malocclusions and disorders of the Craniomandibular system, and bears testimony to the dictum that we should be practising as physicians of occlusal medicine and the craniomandibular system. She is proficient in the MEAW (multi-looped edgewise archwire) and GEAW (Gummetal edgewise archwire) techniques which enable her to treat very complex malocclusions, many of which most would have believed would have required surgery. This promises to be one of our best congresses to date with an opportunity to be exposed to cutting edge principles in orthodontic treatment including MEAW, GEAW, condylography, management of TMD, MOPS (micro-osteoperforation) and other modalities to which you have not been exposed in the past.
