The AAO has designated June 2, 2021 as Orthodontic Staff Appreciation Day. Team members are essential to the success of most orthodontic practices. The AAO helps celebrate their accomplishments with Orthodontic Staff Appreciation Day, scheduled this year on June 2. (Previously this observance was for a week and with the new schedule, member practices are still welcome to extend celebrations over days prior to or after June 2.)

This important recognition offers AAO members the opportunity to demonstrate how important the orthodontic team is to the orthodontists they serve alongside and the patients and families who enter your practice. While the activities to recognize these team members may vary, participating doctors stand united in their deep appreciation of their orthodontic teams’ work with patients and other tasks essential to orthodontic practice operations.

Below you will find options for posters or signage in your office as well as social media graphics to promote your orthodontic staff on June 2.

Your posts that tag the AAO or use the hashtag may be featured in future promotional materials including on social media, the AAO member website and other AAO publications.

While there are countless ways to recognize your outstanding orthodontic team, members who participate in Orthodontic Staff Appreciation Day can show their deep gratitude for their employees’ work with patients and other essential tasks.
