Gain AOB Certification to become a member of the Australasian Orthodontic Board, or Renew your membership by Re-certifying

ASO and NZAO members are eligible for AOB membership.

AOB Certification lasts for 5 years and involves three main steps:

  1. Submit your Application and payment. Here you will also nominate 2 Board cases (that you will be assessed on) and 3 other cases (as back-ups). You will need to provide consent forms for all 5. 
  2. Submit treatment plans for your two nominated cases and a brief literature review supporting your proposed treatment.
  3. Submit completed case information for your 2 Board cases (Stage 2).

Once your application is acknowledged, you have 3 months from that date to complete Stage 1. From completion of Stage 1, you have three years to complete Stage 2.

Through out the process, we will supply you with all the relevant forms, along with templates and sample cases. Support is available for any questions you may have.

To start the process, simply click here and complete the online form. Use this form whether you are applying for the first time or are renewing your AOB Certification. We will send you forms and instructions to take the next step.

AOB ReCertification

AOB Certification will last for 5 years. For ongoing AOB Certification you must commence the AOB process again within this period.
