A Letter from the President…

Dear Orthodontic Professionals,

Rome wasn’t built in a day. It was not built alone. It was not built for free. Your membership makes this necessary step in the evolution of our profession a reality.

The plan is a centralized source of information and news that is now scattered throughout the internet. There will be news, columns, videos and discussion boards covering everything that we need to move into the future of our industry. That will take a lot more time.

The first reality of the association is the conference. Last year, we had over 60 attendees from across the United States with educators from around the world teaching clinics about the forces, materials and technology shaping our future. 2020 brought even more changes and our conference will focus on them. The biggest, and only, ortho lab focused conference. Next? The goal is to have, as one Italian educator put it, "An International Congress on Day to Day Orthodontics."

We need a synergy among labs, practices and vendors to help raise the standards of professionalism and orthodontic education.

All are welcome to join.

Community. Your membership says, “I want to be a part of this.” It gives us a greater voice with vendors and companies about our needs. It brings us together. We are all competitors but we are a community first. As a community, we are stronger.

Education. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of searching through Facebook groups and websites to find information. I want to create a library, a data base. There is actually a ton of great information out there but it is all scattered. I want to bring it all together.

Vision. Our industry is going through a massive shift unlike any other time in its history. Labs are going under. Other labs are prospering. Do we adapt to the changes or can we, as a community, nudge the changes to be better prepared for what comes next?

“Next” will be determined by you.
