Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure and honor to announce the opening of this year's Chang Gung Forum from 25th -27th September, 2017 which will be hosted at the Grand Hotel, Taipei. This 6th International Workshop on Surgery-First Orthognathic Surgery (OGS) will be joined with the 8th William H. Bell Lectureship, focusing on the recent progress in orthognathic surgery. Three world renowned personalities, Bryan Bell, Timothy Turvey and James Xia from the United States will deliver keynote addresses and special lectures.

We at Chang Gung will present our clinical experience as well as research results from our thousands of cases based on our Conventional and Surgery-First approach OGS experience in the last twenty years. There would also be time for in-depth video surgical demonstrations of OGS and a hands-on orthodontic workshop during the forum.

To promote a better understanding of the principles and more effective communication during the meeting, we have put on-line a list of references containing systemic review articles related to surgical orthodontic management of dentofacial conditions. Program and abstracts for the conference can also be downloaded prior to the meeting. Free Wi-Fi will be made available during the Forum.

The Taipei Grand Hotel is at a strategic location to see and experience Taipei City and Taipei life. A warm welcome awaits you at the Grand Ball room on the12th floor of the hotel. Don't miss the exciting welcome reception on the first evening. Expect a wonderful time during the night of the Chinese Opera and an unforgettable experience at the Shilin Night Market (One of the most famous night markets in the world).

This is awesome opportunity to expand your knowledge of surgical orthodontic management of dentofacial conditions and share your clinical expertise.

We look forward to seeing you soon!


Yu-Ray Chen and Daniel CS Huang
