Working for the benefit of the Orthodontic team and its patients since 1971

 

About The Orthodontic Technicians Association

The association was formed in 1971 following a meeting between orthodontic dental technicians employed in London teaching hospitals. Since then membership has grown steadily to represent all members of the industry. It is estimated that there are currently between 400 and 500 dental technicians earning their living from orthodontics in the UK.

Aims

The aims of the association are to encourage study, promote the highest standards of practice and advance the knowledge of orthodontic laboratory and clinical techniques for the benefit of the orthodontic team and patient.

Objectives

  • Act as an advisory body to institutions and individuals on the use of all orthodontic laboratory techniques and the service orthodontic technicians provide.
  • To widen, improve and develop the education and knowledge of those actively engaged in orthodontic technology through the media, publications, lectures, exhibitions, conferences and any other appropriate means.
  • Keep a register of members and their qualifications.
  • To invite and collect subscriptions and donations to the funds of the Association by any lawful means.
  • To co-operate with other organisations with the view to the promotion of the objects of the Association.
