Welcome to the APO website!
The virtual world has definitely brought us closer, albeit not physically, but nevertheless in closer commune with one another, in whatever part of the world we may be. Serendipitously, the limitations brought about by the pandemic has fast-tracked our virtual experience! With this in mind, we will be updating you with APO news and schedules of local and international conferences and scientific meetings.
We will continue to post the Philippine Journal of Orthodontics virtually. We have made some Orthodontic organizations more accessible to you such as WFO, AAO and APOS by posting their links in the new LINKS PORTAL section. Please also check out the newly updated PBO website. And don't forget to register in our MEMBERS ONLY page, exclusively for APO members.
Our website is a work in progress, so please do bear with us, and let us know how we can improve!
Praying for everyone’s safety and health!
