JOIN VANGUARD SOCIETY TODAY!

The Vanguard Society is open to current orthodontic residents only.

Your pledge to the AAO Foundation as a resident inducts you into the Vanguard Society. This lifetime distinction can only be realized by supporters who made their initial pledge of $5,000 as a resident and communicate the special commitment that you have for insuring the future of our specialty. Your Vanguard pledge payment can begin during residency with a graduated payment plan starting as little as $5.00 per month.

2022 Dr. Fred A. Garrett Resident Education Program

The AAO Foundation recognizes the importance of residents having the opportunity to experience an AAO Annual Session, and we support them through this program by offering a one-time $400 incentive to offset expenses to attend the conference.

Due to the 2020 and 2021 AAO Annual Sessions moving to a virtual platform as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have extended eligibility for this program for the 2022 Annual Session in Miami Beach to  include new orthodontists who were residents during those meetings. 


To qualify for the Dr. Fred A. Garrett Resident Education Program incentive of $400, residents must register for and attend AAO Annual Session IN PERSON, and meet the following qualifications:


1. Be a member of AAO
2. Have a graduation date AFTER November 1, 2019
3. Orthodontic Residency Program must be located the U.S. or Canada
4. Visit the AAOF Booth in the AAO Member Services Pavilion, during Exhibit Hall hours and complete a confirmation of attendance survey.
5. Have not received this incentive in previous years (2019 in Los Angeles).

*Please note, we no longer require an advance application or W-9 form. Checks will be mailed directly to residents AFTER Annual Session concludes.
