JOS is the official professional society for Specialist Orthodontists in Jordan and was established under the auspices of the Jordan Dental Association (JDA) in 1988. It is the official body responsible for organizing all matters related to the Orthodontic Specialty in Jordan.
Although its conception was somewhat unusually difficult, it eventually came to light in 1988 as the Jordanian Orthodontic Study Group, which was ultimately changed to officially become The Jordanian Orthodontic Society.
It was the first group of specialists to assemble under the wings of the Jordan Dental Association. At that period of time, the total number of orthodontists entered at the JDA Specialist Register was eight. As the name implies, the main aim of the group was to promote co-operation between colleagues and encourage continued education programs through local and regional orthodontic meetings and seminars.
The highlight of this study group achievements was the convening of the First Arab and Jordanian Orthodontic Congress in Amman on 29-30th of April, 1993. It is also worth mentioning that at that meeting, which hosted a large number of orthodontists (85) from more than 10 Arab countries, the proposition to establish the Arab Orthodontic Society (AOS) was unanimously adopted and approved by the attending Arab delegates.
JOS has come a long way since its humble beginnings, with more than 130 Specialist Orthodontists as members, as well as a wealth of Orthodontic Congresses and Continuous Education programs and activities under its belt, and it is committed – as it always has been – to the continued development of the Orthodontic profession in Jordan.
JOS is committed – as it always has been – to the continued development of the Orthodontic profession in Jordan in all its different organizational, scientific and professional aspects.
Our mission is to promote co-operation between colleagues and encourage continued education programs through local and regional orthodontic meetings and seminars, both offline and online, as well as monitor and supervise all orthodontic-related activity and legislation in Jordan.
