Meeting safely


As we prepare for Annual Session 2021, we are working hard to create a safe, worry-free experience for you that will enable you to grow through education and connections that are insightful, meaningful and actionable.


2020 RECAP

 Over 10,000 members in addition to over 1,000 non-members participated in the first-ever virtual AAO.


Participate in the premiere orthodontic tradeshow and reach orthodontic professionals worldwide. 


The deadline to apply for the 2021 Dr. William R. Proffit Resident Scholar Award is February 1, 2021. 

Creating a safe, worry-free meeting experience is our top priority.

AAO leadership is closely following the impact that COVID-19 continues to have on the United States and around the world. Also, the AAO is working closely with authorities in the Boston area to determine how and if it is safe to meet in-person at our 2021 Annual Session. Because there is uncertainty surrounding this situation, we have delayed opening registration for the Annual Session until early 2021. We will continue to evaluate the situation and will update the Annual Session website with any new developments.

Please keep in mind that we will be offering a virtual option for Annual Session regardless of the status of the in-person event.  We encourage all our members to stay connected with colleagues and industry suppliers by registering for the Annual Session (in one form or the other) once registration opens.

Thank you in advance for your ongoing support and patience as we navigate this situation.
