Your smile deserves the best

Orthodontists have years of specialized training to straighten your teeth for a beautiful, healthy smile.

What is the CAO?

The California Association of Orthodontists (CAO) is the Californian component of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO)β€”the largest and oldest dental specialty organization. The CAO represents nearly 1,500 orthodontic members who practice in California. CAO members are specialists who have completed dental school and then successfully completed 2–3 years of additional training at an accredited orthodontic residency program. Our members are experts in diagnosing and treating all orthodontic problems in patients of all agesβ€”from child to adult. Whether you are considering clear aligners or traditional braces, orthodontists have the training, the expertise, and the treatment options to make sure you get your best smile. Why trust your smile to anything less than a specialist?
