Message from the 2017 International President

Mervyn Druian

As International President, I wish to welcome you to the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity website.  Celebrating our 110th anniversary this year, AO is the oldest Jewish dental and medical organization and our reach crosses borders and time zones.  AO members can find one another in over 10 countries. Our strength is in our brand to connect.   

The nexus of AO is fraternalism, professionalism, and a commitment to Judaic values.  AO members network with colleagues from across the globe, attend local and international meetings, and participate in philanthropic projects that serve local and global communities.  

The AO-Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program in North American is the hallmark of AO's spirit of Tikkun Olam (or healing the world).  With this program, AO members donate their time and talent to treating a most deserving population that desperately needs oral care.  AO members also serve their local communities through dental and other philanthropy.  

AO is an inclusive organization that welcomes dental students, dentists, and friends to join and become part of our global community. On our website, you will find information about our chapters, leaders, upcoming events, and news.  Please enjoy browsing the website and learn more about AO.
