Yves Trin

President of SFOPA

It is with great pleasure that I can announce our 7th Congress which will take place in Bordeaux on June 2 and 3, 2023.
We were initially supposed to organize our Congress in Marrakech, but the economic and energy crisis caused by the war in Ukraine as well as the awareness of the planet’s protection, made us give up this beautiful project in collaboration with our Moroccan colleagues.
The accessibility and the beauty of the city of Bordeaux, will incite you to join us to this exceptional place : the Intercontinental Hotel.

The aim of SFOPA has always been to inform the profession about this technique of aligners which has proven itself over the last 20 years, and thus to support our colleagues in its implementation within the practices.  The workshop on mini-screws will allow you to discover or improve the use of this auxiliary. The improvement of the tools and the software allowing a fast and precise home made production of aligners will be discussed in a workshop.
The clinical side will be discussed during our Saturday morning lectures on the theme “Auxiliaries and Aligners”. The auxiliaries will let you extend the possibilities of treatment with aligners and make them usable in most clinical cases.
Finally, we will have the second edition of the “Clinical Case Marathon” where our colleagues will present, with confraternity, their successes and difficulties encountered. The sharing of our experiences is the main source of our progress.
An important moment will also be the visit of the Exhibition where you will find the latest 3D printers, materials, software, etc., and to discuss with the suppliers who are an essential link in our practice. We thank them for their participation and their support to the life of our Scientific Society and of Orthodontics.
The team of the SFOPA Office will be pleased to welcome you and to exchange with you in BORDEAUX.

About us

The French Society of Aligners Orthodontics (SFOPA), was created in 2005.  

It is the first French scientific society in the field of alignment treatment by thermoformed aligners.  

Through teaching and research, the goal of the French Society of Aligners Orthodontics is to demonstrate the advantages of wireless orthodontics and promote it.

As a result, SFOPA is a key player in the development of aligners and is an ideal relay in its capacity as an independent information and specialized training structure.

Its members have direct access to the latest alignment technologies available, analyzed and evaluated by experts.
