The AAO and its constituent organizations are more valuable than ever as they strive to represent the best interests of Ohio orthodontists amidst a changing practice environment. 

The AAO website continues to offer a wealth of information, services and resources for members, including advocacy, continuing education, practice management advice, news from around the profession and career opportunities.  I would encourage all AAO members to check frequently for helpful updates. 

I’d like to extend a special thank-you to our past and current Board of Directors and Officers for their service.  Please don’t hesitate to contact any board member or the Executive Director, Lori Mollohan, with your questions, concerns, or suggestions.

Warmest regards,

Dr. Andrew Wade
OAO President

A Message from the President-Dr. Andrew Wade

Welcome to the OAO

​The primary mission of the OAO is to support orthodontists throughout Ohio and to serve as your liaison to the Great Lakes Association and the American Association of Orthodontists. If you have a concern that is impacting your practice or have suggestions on how to improve practice conditions in Ohio, we would love to hear from you.  

Our orthodontic profession continues to evolve rapidly with changes in insurance, technology, patient expectations and the prevalence of dental service organizations.
