When you offer orthodontic treatment in your office, it is interesting to share with colleagues who also practice orthodontics. The IAO has members all over the world. The IAO has 4 IAO sections in Canada but it also has sections in the USA, Italy, Japan, Australia, the Philippines, Brazil, etc., a wide network for discussions and exchanges present in 11 countries.
Each of these sections share the same goal which is continuing education in orthodontics, dentofacial orthopaedics, sleep apnea and TMJ dysfunction.
You can register you continuing education hours with the IAO head office and progress toward your Fellow and Diplomate of the International Board of Orthodontics.
