In most jurisdictions, dental practitioners must complete postdoctoral training from an accredited program in order to advertise themselves as a specialist. Use this form if you believe a practitioner does not meet these qualifications.

Represent the future of orthodontics with the AAOPAC.

The AAO Political Action Committee (AAOPAC) was established in 1994 to serve as orthodontists’ voice in Washington by supporting federal candidates whose views are consistent with the goals of the specialty. With your help, our collective resources can ensure the interests of orthodontists are represented at the federal level.
