Bringing the orthodontic community together

After more than fifty years, the American Association of Orthodontists’ Annual Session is heading to Miami Beach, Florida May 21-24, 2022. Having celebrated Annual Session virtually the past two years, the AAO is looking forward to bringing the orthodontic community together again in-person.

As usual, attendees will enjoy 3 and a half days of the best orthodontic education available. But, attendees will also get to experience the conference as they never have before: network with colleagues on the beach, get a taste of Miami, spend an evening with suppliers, and explore a new destination when you register to attend the post-conference event. Stay tuned for more.
