At the very outset, I would like to congratulate the dynamic team of Asian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial
Surgeons headed by my dear friend, PRESIDENT Dr. Gunaseelan Rajan (India), PRESIDENT ELECT Dr. Mike YY
Leung (Hong Kong), EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dr. Tetsu Takahashi (Japan), IMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT Dr. Hee
Kyun Oh (Korea), TREASURER Dr. Toru Nagao (Japan), and EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Dr. Yoshiki Hamada (Japan) for
organizing 16th biennial congress of Asian AOMS on July 25,26 & 27th 2024 at Chennai Convention & Trade Centre.
The Asian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons was established to improve the quality and standards
of the specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Asia and brings together the best minds of our region.
AAOMS has been successful in achieving some fantastic feats in the past and I am thrilled to see that AAOMS is
hosting 16 th biennial conference in Chennai, India. This conference is the 2nd conference in India after 22
years. It is a matter of immense pride that AAOMS has second President from India - Dr. Gunaseelan Rajan at
the helm of affairs.
This conference is going to be a scientific extravaganza that will be hosting delegates and trainees across the
world. There are going to intellectually stimulating plenary, keynotes and scientific deliberations. Paper &
Poster presentation are being organized for delegates and a plethora of live surgeries from a reputed galaxy of
surgeons will enthral the gathered.
It has been heart warming to see the passion among all our surgeons in working towards spreading awareness
about maxillofacial surgery in their own capacities. Let us celebrate our speciality by coming together, joining
hands and taking our fraternity to greater heights and making Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery a household name.
