Conference theme: Paradigm Shift of TMD Diagnosis and Treatment





It is great pleasure that the 2nd Asian Academic Congress and the 24th annual meeting of Japanese

 society for Temporomandibular Joint will be held in Hiroshima, Japan July 23 and 24, 2011 and we

will have outstanding speakers who have excellent achievements in Temporomandibular joint (TMJ)

research from Asia/Oceania and USA.

The causes of the temporomandibular disorder are diverse and the occurrence and management in each

country are different. So, the theme of Paradigm shift of TMD diagnosis and treatment will be

reflected in

the many collaborative sessions that will bring together experts from the different region such as Japan,

Korea, China, Turkey, Philippine, Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Australia and beyond to

discuss common areas of interest, introducing new concepts and research findings as well as share

knowledge in areas of difficulty or even failures.

It is the same time an opportunity to strengthen understanding and interdisciplinary cooperation

amongst member countries.

We are very pleased to organize and host this event and are determined to provide you with an

educational and social occasion that will be remembered for many years to come. We are confident of a

memorable congress in all aspects, and we look forward to your concurrence.
