Donated Orthodontic Services

An American Association of Orthodontists Foundation Program

Since its inception more than a decade ago, the Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) program has provided orthodontic treatment for over 1,000 children from families with a financial need. Today, our purpose remains the same - create opportunities for children to have access to professional orthodontic intervention through a volunteer network of AAO members.

Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) is a program of the American Association of Orthodontists Foundation (AAOF) that serves as a conduit to orthodontic treatment for children who lack access to care.

Through the DOS program, children receive help during a critical time in their development where bullying and self-esteem issues are prevalent. Ultimately, we want children to feel more confident as they move forward in life with their best smile.


Two Ways to Volunteer

1. As a DOS Provider

  Help a child access a healthy smile by donating your time and services as a provider.

2. State Champion

  Serve as an ambassador for the program and help recruit DOS volunteers in your state.

  Share your experiences as a DOS volunteer with your network

  Recruit AAO members in your state to serve as volunteers


While some orthodontists choose to affiliate with similar outreach programs or seek out pro bono cases on their own, AAO members often decide to volunteer through DOS because they want to join a network of professionals recognized by the American Association of Orthodontists.

  • Patients are currently waiting for YOU! The DOS program has children ready to be matched with a volunteer orthodontist in their area.
  • Join the team of more than 600 AAO Member Orthodontists who continually support the DOS program.
  • The DOS program takes all the guesswork out of pro-bono volunteering.
  • Use your knowledge and skills to benefit your community and give back right from your office.

"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
