Donated Orthodontic Services
The American Association of Orthodontists Donated Orthodontic Services Program (DOS) provides access to orthodontic care for qualifying children who lack insurance coverage or who do not qualify for other assistance in their states of residence. Since being formed in 2009, nearly 700 children have completed treatment, and nearly 400 are currently being treated. Applicants must meet certain financial need requirements. Those accepted for the DOS program are expected to comply with treatment requirements including keeping scheduled appointments, good home oral hygiene care, and keep appointments for regular dental check-ups and cleanings during orthodontic treatment.
