In 1907, the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity was formed at the University of Maryland School of Dental Medicine. Today, AO has over 40 students chapters in North America, Europe, and Israel.
AO students are instrumental in creating unique philanthropic projects in their communities and around the world through mission trips. Our alumni chapters support the professional needs of students chapters and if there is not an alumni chapter near the student one, other members try to make connections.
Student members benefit with AO's mentoring, networking, and Residency Network Project offerings. Alumni members are always happy to support student members.
AO students are invited to attend local alumni chapter meetings, regional and international meetings. Students are a critical part of AO and our community is growing each year.
NEW - 2017 AO Student Awards! Learn more about how AO is honoring our wonderful student and their chapters at our 2017 December meeting.
