The Australasian Orthodontic Journal (AOJ) is the official scientific publication of the Australian Society of Orthodontists. First published in 1967, the aim of the AOJ is to publish original, clinically relevant and evidence-based research on topics such as craniofacial development and growth, orthodontic treatment and care, and industry advancements and trends.

The AOJ is published in accordance with independent, unbiased, and double-blinded peer-review principles.


The Australian Society of Orthodontists helps patients understand their options for orthodontic treatment and the importance and life changing benefits of orthodontics for patients of all ages. 
Only dentists that have completed an accredited orthodontic specialist training program for a further 3 years after dental school can be accepted for membership in the Australian Society of Orthodontics. 
Specialist orthodontists are highly educated clinicians who are capable of diagnosing, preventing and treating dental and facial irregularities to correctly align the teeth and jaws and balance the facial profile and soft tissues. 
The ASO provides factual information about orthodontic treatment and only relies on the best practice university and hospital research to ensure that clinicians are equipped with the knowledge to act in the best interests of patient care.
