The ESAO join page

The European Society of Aesthetic Orthodontics (ESAO) was established in 2013 to provide resources and support to GDPs who practice aesthetic orthodontics, as well as promoting the safe and ethical delivery of these treatments.

The ESAO is committed to raising standards in aesthetic orthodontic provision by general dentists, and provides impartial and unbiased courses, training, study clubs and online resources. The society also aims to raise public awareness of aesthetic orthodontics as a valid alternative to invasive and potentially damaging restorative techniques.
