Join the ASO

The ASO represents the specialist orthodontic profession and works to ensure that the public seeking orthodontic treatment is informed of their rights and options.

The ASO promotes Continuing Education, actively supports and is involved in all accredited postgraduate orthodontic education, funds research, and promotes ethics and the highest professional standards. It acts on behalf of its members in addressing the issues and concerns facing the profession.

One current issue is the overwhelming concern regarding the number of general dentists undertaking orthodontic treatment with little and inadequate training.
