Dear friends of Taiwan Association of Aligner Orthodontists (TAAO):
Thanks to the support of the members and the supervisors, I am honored to serve as the third chairman of Taiwan Association of Aligner Orthodontists.
Looking back the day when we first had our meeting at the high-speed rail station, now we have completed our website, the number of members has grown substantially, and the academic seminars have been a complete success. I sincerely thank the former chairmen and staffs for their dedication, which brought about the development and growth of TAAO. We witness the growth of TAAO and because of our efforts; it has been a new aesthetics trend in orthodontics! For the next two years, I will uphold the original ideals, work hard to promote the affairs of the society, and establish procedures and standards for the expert examination system to enhance the overall level of technology in orthodontics in Taiwan. Also, we will actively participate in and hold regular academic seminars in related fields at home and abroad so as to be in line with international standards and encourage the new members to join us. At the same time, we should be brave enough to assume social responsibility and be a leader in the medical profession to ensure that patients are prioritized, medical professionals are respected and manufacturers’ technology will be introduced to assist the development of orthodontics. It is also necessary to establish a new paradigm that combines humanistic values, integration of scientific and technological materials and medical aesthetics. I believe that the future development of TAAO will be like the eagle spreading its wings!
