International Association for Orthodontics
Sheraton Hartford Hotel at Bradley Airport, Windsor Locks, CTDirections & Location Details
The International Association for Orthodontics (IAO) International Association for Orthodontics was established in the United States in 1961 to promote international cooperation in the orthodontic field of dentistry. IAO is a progressive and dynamic organization of general dentists, pediatric dentists and other dentists that provide orthodontic care to patients.
The IAO is the oldest and largest of the national and international non-specialty orthodontic groups. The association has a wide variety of programs in education, professional support, clinical experience and literature.
The IAO's headquarters office is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
The purpose of the IAO is to:
A. To promote the study and disseminate the knowledge of the cause, control, treatment and prevention of malocclusion of the teeth and any possible resulting dysfunction, such as dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint.
B. To promote an exchange of ideas and experiences based on a biomechanical approach, between the various fields of dentistry related to orthodontics.
C. To promote the establishment and maintenance of the highest ideals in orthodontic practice, research and development throughout the world for the benefit of all orthodontic patients.
D. To promote the elimination of professional isolationism in orthodontics and thereby create an atmosphere conducive to harmonious relationships between all dental practitioners in orthodontics.
E. To strongly support its members in all aspects of their orthodontic practices.
The New England chapter is the longest continually operating non-specialty school and study group dedicated to childrenís dentistry and orthodontics in the US, starting in the early 1970s. Our group is dedicated to children's dentistry, occlusion, TMD treatment, growth and development, facial orthopedics and orthodontics. We hold seven weekend meetings per year and currently have a total of twenty students enrolled in our school. One of the great benefits of our group is the ability to discuss cases with colleagues to improve our own treatment outcomes while keeping up to date on the latest developments in the dental field. To this end we recruit 3 lecturers per year who have been recognized as leaders in the dental field to give weekend presentations to our group of their best materials. It is through this dedication to learning and professional advancement that we are able to provide our patients with state of the art dental care.
