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.

We’re Moving the 2021 AAO Annual Session to June!
In-person and virtual meeting options are scheduled to occur June 25-27, 2021.


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.

Unfortunately, it will not be possible for an in-person meeting to take place in April. And while we know we can deliver an excellent virtual meeting experience, we have heard from countless members who would love for nothing more than to meet in person – provided it is safe to do so. 

For that reason, the AAO Board of Trustees voted to move Annual Session to June and re-design the experience with everyone’s unique needs in mind. Whether you prefer the convenience of your home or office, or feel comfortable traveling to Boston for the in-person event, we hope you’ll join us at the AAO’s inaugural hybrid Annual Session June 25-27, 2021. 

The details of this meeting will be announced in the coming weeks, and we appreciate your patience as we address the logistical details of rescheduling this event. Your safety continues to be our top priority and we hope that our members who are not comfortable or able to travel to Boston will participate virtually in this historic event.
