Australasian Orthodontic Board


Excellence, Education and Review

The Australasian Orthodontic Board (AOB) offers a unique certification program for members of the Australian Society of Orthodontics (ASO) and the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists (NZAO).

The AOB is a voluntary process of Continuing Education and peer review. AOB members benefit from ongoing peer review of their orthodontic treatment plans and treatment to ensure they are always up-to-date with the latest orthodontic practice, standard of care and clinical developments.

The AOB offers a straight-forward system that can be utilised by students, through recent graduates, to those who have been practicing for many years. The peer review process ensures applicability for any level of qualification and experience.

AOB status needs to be regularly renewed to ensure ongoing education and learning for all AOB members.

The AOB Cert post nominal is available and valid for actively certified members and must be relinquished when AOB certification expires.

CPD credits can be gained for the Dental Board of Australia CPD Program.

  • AOB Stage 1 (submission of treatment plans): 10 hours
  • AOB Stage 2 (submission of completed cases): 15 hour
