Welcome to the website of the New Jersey Association of Orthodontists, a component of the Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists - MASO, and part of the American Association of Orthodontists - AAO.


Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of the New Jersey Association of Orthodontists.  Our organization represents over 400 orthodontists either in practice or retired in the great state of New Jersey.

Orthodontists are dentists who specialize specifically in straightening teeth and the correction of bad bites.  Following dental school, orthodontists complete a 2 or 3 year residency program, all accredited by the American Dental Association, to become experts in treating patients who want straight teeth, a better bite, and a beautiful smile.  General dentists and pediatric dentists are not specialists in orthodontics.

As orthodontic specialists and members of the NJAO, we are dedicated to the principles presented in our Mission Statement.  As required by the State of New Jersey, we are registered as specialists, must limit our practices to orthodontics, and we must take 40 hours of continuing education courses every 2 years.

If you or your child is seeking orthodontic care, entrust that care to an orthodontist, a highly experienced expert.  You may find the location of an NJAO orthodontist through this website.

To your beautiful smile,

Best Wishes,

Dr. Rene S. Johe
President, NJAO
