Testimonials

“After 10 years of general dentistry, I wanted to broaden my services and grow the practice by learning orthodontics. My first instructor, Dr. Robert Gerety, captivated me from session I. Subsequent AOS courses from different instructors were outstanding and have made me a better and more profitable clinician. The AOS education is great and the professional friendships even better.”
-Dr. Anne Mary Orr
