UIC Orthodontics Participating at the AAO Annual Session in Chicago, April 22 – 24, 2023
Why is UIC Orthodontics participating at the 2023 AAO?
The Annual Session of the AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) is one of the largest professional society meetings in the World with almost 10,000 orthodontists participating in it. It is not only a scientific meeting but also an excellent venue for networking and socializing. Almost 20,000 of US/ North America as well as 5,000 internationally trained orthodontists are active members of AAO.
Each year, AAO conducts their annual meeting rotating from city to city. After more than 2 years of virtual meetings due to Covid-19 pandemic, the AAO annual session was back to an in-person event in 2022 (Miami Beach). In April 2023, our beloved City of Chicago will have the honor of hosting the 110th AAO annual session at McCormick place. We anticipate that over 10,000 orthodontists and 300 exhibitors will participate in this event.
As one of the oldest orthodontic residency training programs in the United States, UIC College of Dentistry is proud to have a chance to represent the university at the AAO Conference. We are looking forward to not only participate in the scientific program but also have our own exhibition booth and participate in the innovation pavilion of FRED talk at this upcoming 2023 AAO Annual Session.
As part of our long term plan to improve access to oral health care, the Department of Orthodontics at UIC College of Dentistry in the past five years has been in the forefront of furthering state of the art research by using tools such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, and genomics.

We also developed the Specialty Node of the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network which is one of the largest funded studies by NIH/NIDCR. In a recent article in American Journal of Dentofacial Orthodontics (the world renowned orthodontic peer reviewed journal), the Orthodontics Department was recognized as having the second most number of top cited articles in the past 20 years. Our program also has a long storied history with over 600 orthodontists graduating since 1929. We value our TEAM work with other specialties and in rendering high quality inter-disciplinary care.
