Why WIO Conference?

The Women in Orthodontics® Study Group has developed into an incredible online community with over 1,700 members (and growing). Over the past few years, we have built supportive relationships and learned from each other about clinical and business issues that impact our practices. Last year, we gathered together for the first time and the response was amazing. We all agreed - We need more time to meet! So here it is – a two-day conference packed with female doctors speaking about the business, clinical and personal issues orthodontists face from a woman’s perspective! We’ve been going to their meetings for too long. This time it’s for us.
