About OAO

The OAO is the voluntary organization of certified orthodontic specialists in Ontario, whose mission is to serve the providers and recipients of specialist orthodontic care in Ontario.

It is the official voice of Ontario orthodontists to organized dental associations, recognized educational insitutions, professional licensing bodies, the public, and government.

Our goal is to help patients make the most informed decision when it comes to considering orthodontic care.  We do this through patient education and information.  The best way for patients to get informed is by visiting a certified orthodontic specialist.  All of our members are certified orthodontic specialists.
