A Message from the President - Dr. Jay Parekh

The Ohio Association Of Orthodontists Is The State Level Component Of The American Association Of Orthodontists.


Hello and welcome to the website for the Ohio Association of Orthodontists.


We represent the state level component of the American Association of Orthodontists. Our primary purpose is to provide personalized service to our members and represent them in issues they face in the daily practice of orthodontists.

Most recently, we have been active in working with the Ohio Dental Association and the Ohio State Dental Board to maintain reasonable standards in relation to specialty advertising. In addition, we, along with the AAO and our regional component, The Great Lakes Society of Orthodontists, are engaging in consumer awareness campaigns regarding the risks of do-it-yourself orthodontics as well as the differences in treatment by orthodontists versus general practitioners.
