Structure of the ASO

The ASO is the peak body for orthodontics in Australia. We have members in every state and all our members are registered specalist orthodontists. 

Our Federal Executive –  Our President, Treasurer and Secretary - who rotate every two years on a state-by-state basis. This means a continual flow of fresh ideas to ensure we maintain a modern and relevant approach to orthodontics and our society. We stand for delivery of the highest possible standard of care to the community.

The ASO is governed by a Federal Council, made up of the Executive, three members from the state that will succeed the current Executive, and a representative from the three remaining State Branches. All our decisions and policies require a majority vote of Council which ensures all states participate in our activities and policy making.

Each of the State Branches also have their own state councils. The states are closely involved with the universities in their states and coordinating ASO members' education and clinical training days.  

The ASO also operates a number of Committees.

As a Society we are proud of the way in which our members embrace lifelong learning.
