A Message from the President – Dr. Bruce Goldstein

Dr. Goldstein

The College continues to maintain its support of the American Board of Orthodontics in their pursuit of excellence. We offer a redesigned Prep Course for orthodontists taking the new Scenario-based Oral Clinical Exam. Helping with recertification along with promoting the excellence of our College members are priorities as we continue to work hard to offer value to our membership.

We have planned an exceptional meeting July 10-13, 2020. My wife, Jill and I want to personally welcome you to join us in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. The resort is easy to get to as it is only a 30 minute drive from the Spokane airport. The venue, situated on a beautiful lake, offers activities for all ages. A newly-designed park adjacent to the hotel is ideal for young families to enjoy. Water sports of all types , along with hiking, biking, Parasailing and fishing are available. World-class golf featuring the “Floating Green” highlight the experience. Our speakers will get to the Heart of the Matter as we debate different topics each day. This unique program has been designed to be controversial and will prove to be the meeting of the year. As you arrange your summer itinerary, make sure to include this special event in your vacation plans.

All College of Diplomates events - Prep Courses, the Annual Luncheon and the University Case Displays - scheduled in conjunction with the American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session in May in Atlanta are cancelled. A full refund will be processed to the credit card provided with your online registration.



To promote and support the pursuit of enhanced quality of care through the process of ABO certification, re‐certification, and continuing education.
