New hope for next generations of orthodontic clinicians

Around the world, the paths of orthodontic clinicians in the profession may have been different, but the challenges they face are often similar. Many have struggled to fund the research that would launch their careers while seeking advice from seasoned professionals. They should also research the latest research and educational materials to keep abreast of developments in the professional field.

One of IOF’s co-founders also faced many challenges as a young academic studying at Harvard Medical School. Thanks to the launch of the American Association of Orthodontics Foundation, he received his first financial support. His lab now receives millions of dollars in annual funding and has made significant medical advances. He owes his career and his success to this early “investment”.

All IOF the founding clinicians in orthodontics were blessed with much-needed mentorship and funding throughout their careers. Now, as influential forces in the field, they are committed to providing a powerful platform for today’s young and emerging orthodontic clinicians, allowing them to have an equal opportunity to learn, grow and develop. ‘to exchange ideas.
