About the ASO

The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) is the peak specialist body for orthodontists and orthodontic knowledge across Australia. Almost all registered orthodontists in Australia are members of the ASO.

Orthodontists differ from dentists in that they undertake a general dentistry degree, a minimum of two years dentistry experience, and an additional three-year, full-time university post-graduate orthodontic degree in the specialist area of orthodontics.
