On 11th November, our Dr Perera travelled to Paris to take part in the second largest orthodontics congress in Europe: Les Journées de l'Orthodontie, as an invited speaker. At this event, he once more explained his experience with the Damon System to an audience that had come from far and wide.
Last month, Dr Perera was in Mexico City, from 26th to 28th October, for the Damon Forum Mexico 2017. This was held at the World Trade Center, which was fully decked out to receive the different speakers participating in the event. These included our own Dr Perera, who gave a presentation entitled “Finishing cases with the Damon System” at a congress that was attended by over 1000 people. After the 5-hour course, Dr Perera was awarded a commemorative plaque.
On 25th October, Dr Perera crossed the Atlantic to take part in the 39th International Orthodontic Session in Argentina. On this occasion, Buenos Aires was the city chosen to host this congress, at which our doctor gave an advanced course entitled “Finishing cases with the Damon System” to doctors who had already specialised in this technique. His trip to Argentina was followed by a subsequent visit to Mexico, where his international agenda continued.
On 20th and 21st October, a new session of the Damon Master course with translation into French was held in Madrid. Once more, we were accompanied by Salagne and Marisa, the interpreters who have been working with doctors García Espejo and Perera on the French version of this specialisation course for a number of years. This group required simultaneous translation in order to ensure that the participants did not lose any of the details of the content taught.
Another session of the International Damon Master course took place on 6th and 7th October. It was held in Madrid and the group was formed by doctors and orthodontic students from different countries taking part in the 4th module of the course and continuing their specialisation in the Damon technique. The course was delivered with simultaneous translation into English. The next session will be held on 24th and 25th November.
Our Dr Perera closed the month of September by giving a course at the Colegio Oficial de Médicos (Official Medical School) of A Coruña. In this magnificent land, he shared his experience of the Damon System with all present. In the images, we can see Dr Perera receiving a plaque from Ormco and the Colegio de Médicos of A Coruña and also see him speaking to people during the coffee break.
On Friday 15th September, Dr Rafael García Espejo (co-director of the Master Damon) gave a course in Madrid at the Colegio Oficial de Odontólogos y Estomatólogos (Official College of Orthodontists and Stomatologists) about the system that has revolutionised modern-day orthodontics: the Damon technique.
