Join Alpha Omega and Help Us Grow!
Our membership consists of dedicated dentists and dental students who believe in our tenets of professionalism, fraternalism, and commitment to Judaic values. Please read below more about our dues structure and AO has over 100 chapters worldwide.
Chapters: AO chapters offer members outstanding opportunities to not only networking with peers and other professionals but to participate in philanthropic projects and earn continuing education. Each chapter is unique and the chapter leadership determines the programming. Click here for a list of AO alumni chapters.
Our alumni chapters also decide if it is easier for the chapter to collect the dues (Self-Billing) or if our international headquarters (Headquarters Billed).
Our student chapters participate in a fall rush to recruit new members and retain current ones. Students are an integral part of AO. Residents may choose to join the student chapter or alumni chapter. Visit the Student page for more information.
Dues Categories: Our dues categories reflect the different stages our members may be in their careers.
