The Japanese Orthodontic Society
This academic society established in 1926 represents Japan on the world stage as well as domestically. We are made up of approximately 7,000 members, focusing mainly on orthodontists from regions all over Japan.
The goal of the Japanese Orthodontic Society is to advance and expand orthodontics and dentofacisl orthopedics. In order to achieve this goal, we hold academic symposiums annually, publish the English international journal "Orthodontic Waves" four times per year and the Japanese language journal "Orthodontic Waves Japanese Edition" two times per year as our official journals, issue the accreditation of accredited physicians, medical specialists, attending doctors, and administrative attending doctors, issue the accreditation of training institutions and clinical training institutions, and engage in other necessary activities.
Also, in the autumn of 2020, the 9th International Orthodontic Congress marks the first time the International Orthodontic Congress will be held in Asia, and we will congruently hold the 12th Asian Pacific Orthodontic Congress and the 79th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Orthodontic Society at Pacifico Yokohama.
