Welcome to HSAO!


The Harvard Society for the Advancement of Orthodontics is a professional organization of orthodontists who graduated from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) or a Harvard-affiliated postdoctoral orthodontic program (Forsyth, Children's Hospital). Current and former HSDM orthodontics faculty members are also eligible for membership.

The Society’s mission is to further the study and advancement of orthodontics through education, research and fellowship. To that end, it publishes a professional journal and organizes a scientific conference each year.
