Dear distinguished guests, members of the Korean Association of Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen,
The turbulent domestic and international events of the year 2018 have led us to stand amongst the middle autumn days, when all things bear juicy fruit and the hills aflame into a magnificent riot of gold and red. It is a great pleasure for me, especially at this glorious and abundant time of the year, to welcome you all to the 57th annual KAMPRS congress, taking place here in Cheongju – the birthplace of ‘Jikji’, the world's oldest metalloid print book. Our members of the Dankook University Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are truly greatly honored for having the privilege of hosting this event.
All the programs of the conference have been consisted to adequately fall under this year’s theme – “New Fashion in Maxillofacial Cosmetic & Functions” - and to further target the conference, all the symposiums and intensive lectures presented by our renowned guest speakers will be consisted to highlight only the meticulously selected topics such as orthognathic surgery, facial esthetics, and treatment methods for obstructive sleep apnea. In addition, in regards to the Korean esthetic standards that are becoming gradually Westernized, the esthetic criteria of other Eastern Asian countries that possess the physical appearances, skin textures, cultures, and values similar to those of our country’s will also be addressed.
Rather than covering the vast realms of maxillofacial surgery, the topic of the guest lectures has hence been limited to address orthognathic surgery only, in which our esteemed guest speakers – Professor YR Chen of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taiwan, Doctor Mitsugi from Japan, Professor Wang of Peking University, China, and Professor Jae Seung Kim of Konkuk University, Korea – will elaborate on the various diagnostic methods and procedures of the surgeries that they currently perform.
Only Korean and Eastern Asian professors have been invited to be the distinguished guest speakers for all the educational programs and symposiums of this event, in which they will discuss and propose new approaches and emerging strategies for the functional and aesthetically-orientated orthognathic treatment of contemporary Asians.
All the oral presentations will be presented by keynote speakers, and I would also like to announce that the symposium on the OGS of facial asymmetry will be hosted by the Association’s orthognathic research institute.
I sincerely wish that this conference will be a memorable and invaluable opportunity to attain academic knowledge, broaden insights, and build precious friendship and rapport for all the members present. I would like to conclude by expressing my most sincere gratitude for the tremendous support of Chairman Young Wook Park, the Board of Directors, the members of Dankook University department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our alumni, exhibitors, eminent guest speakers who generously offered to take time off their busy schedules to share their precious knowledge, and last but not least, all the distinguished members of our association, in hosting this event.
To all honorable members of the Korean Association of Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (KAMPRS), it is with great joy and gratitude that I announce the holding of the 57th Congress of KAMPRS in this beautiful autumn, led by the Department of OMFS of the College of Dentistry, Dankook University.
Since the founding of KAMPRS in 1962 by our wise predecessors, we have strived to make improvements in the areas of maxillofacial reconstructive surgery and aesthetic surgery. All of your active efforts and contributions to the knowledge of this field have enabled us to establish the Orthognathics Institute. Moreover, by holding maxillofacial aesthetic surgery workshops regularly, the institute’s members and dentists can familiarize themselves more and more on the guidelines of aesthetic procedures. In addition, the result of maxillofacial reconstructive surgery research has been increasing dramatically, following the citation index of the Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal.
This time, the Congress will be held in the beautiful town of Cheongju from October 25 to 27, under the theme of “New Fashion in Maxillofacial Cosmetic & Functions,”
which is something that, I believe, falls under the interest of most of us. To discuss the latest diagnostic methods and surgery concepts related to orthognathic surgery, Professor YR Chen and Dr. Frank
Chang from the Department of Plastic Surgery of Chang Gung Memorial Hospital of Taiwan, Dr. Masaharu Mitsugi from Kagawa Prefectural Central Hospital of Japan, Professor Xiaoxia Wang from Peking University
of China, and Professor Kim Jae-Seung from Konkuk University were gracious enough to be our speakers for this event.
Through the years, symposium speakers and delegations from the Japanese Society for Jaw Deformities and the Taiwanese Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons have consistently engaged with us through this Congress.
On top of which, the Orthognathics Institute will hold a symposium on facial asymmetry, and there will be a separate symposium on insurance to provide actual help to
members. Your attendance and support would be greatly appreciated. Despite these events holding great significance by themselves, we aim for the Congress to become a venue for academic exchange and
relationship building, especially during the symposium, speech, and poster presentations.
It is our sincere hope that you have a productive and enjoyable experience, and we encourage you to take full advantage of all that this Congress and the town of Cheongju have to offer.
My sincerest gratitude goes to the invited speakers, the symposium speakers who have gladly agreed to impart their knowledge and share their experiences, and all the
participants of this event. Furthermore, I want to thank Congress President, Jae Hoon Lee, and the organizing committee members and alumni of the Department of OMFS of Dankook University.
Lastly, I would also like to thank the board members of the Congress who have spared no effort in ensuring the success of this event as well as all the other people taking part in it.
I wish you all a healthy and prosperous life, and I believe with great confidence that the 57th Congress of the KAMPRS will be a success.
