Changing Your Personal or Practice Information

It’s more important than ever to keep your membership information up-to-date, and easier, too!

Information is used to send important information via mail or email. All information is used by the AAO Orthodontic Locator to send more potential patients your way.

Updating your information with the AAO updates your constituent and component information too!
You can update your information online, and it will be updated throughout the system.

If you prefer, you can call the AAO at 800-424-2841 and talk to one of the Information Center assistants who can help you update your records.
