The DGAO · German Society for Aligner Orthodontics eV

The German Society for Aligner Orthodontics is an initiative of experts in the field of orthodontic treatment with transparent plastic splints. The aim is to show the advantages of wireless orthodontics, which are becoming more and more popular, and to make them better known. This is done by setting up and funding research projects in this field, training courses and symposiums and close cooperation with national and international specialist societies.

The DGAO thus forms an ideal platform for specialist information and further training in the field of aligner orthodontics. Members take part in the constant further development and thus document their competence to patients and colleagues in this field.
