Donated Orthodontic Services



What is Donated Orthodontic Services?

Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) is a program of the American Association of Orthodontists Foundation (AAOF) that provides the conduit to orthodontic treatment for children that lack access to care. Our purpose remains the same as the day the program was founded more than a decade ago, to create opportunities for children to access professional, individualized, orthodontic intervention, by creating a volunteer network of AAO members.

WHY Donated Orthodontic Services

Smiling girlWe believe that all children should have access to a functional bite and a healthy, beautiful smile. American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) members are naturals when it comes to community involvement. Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) connects AAO members and children in need of orthodontic treatment.


Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) welcomes children 18 years of age or younger, with good oral hygiene, and not currently undergoing or in between phases or orthodontic treatment to apply for our program. Families also must have an income under 200% of the Federal Poverty Level based on their family size. Click here for program information, eligibility, and application.


Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) program by providing pro-bono services. Together we are able to transform children’s lives, beyond a beautiful smile. Let’s combine our resources to help enable as many children as possible begin their orthodontic journey, today.

"Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) provides an opportunity to give someone in need one of the greatest gifts we can and that is the gift of a beautiful smile. Restoring confidence, restoring health, and restoring belief in oneself is something that we as orthodontists are able to accomplish on the daily. DOS allows you, the practitioner, a streamlined way to bring back a smile that otherwise may go untreated. We invite you to join us in helping spread smiles across the country!” - Dr. Daniel Keith
