The College of Oral Medicine held an Advanced International Orthodontic Professional Training Program in TMU over ten days in January 2019.


Twenty-four orthodontists and professors from the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Nepal and India were invited to Taiwan to attend the training.

The themes were digital orthodontics, orthodontic treatment in troublecases, and evidence-based orthodontics. The program combined a workshop in lingual orthodontic practices with cultural exchange courses in English to share the expertise and advantages of Taiwan’s oral medical profession.

The program showed off Taiwan’s orthodontic medical and research prowess, and was attended by many local orthodontists. After ten days, the participants came away with new experiences and friendships, and had witnessed the high standards of Taiwan’s orthodontistry, making the program a successful academic gathering.
