The College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics regretfully announces the cancellation of the 2020 College Annual Meeting that was scheduled to be held July 10 – 13 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho due to the continuing impact of COVID-19 and orthodontic office closures.

Meeting registrants will automatically receive a refund in full within 60 days. The Coeur d’Alene Resort and the Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn will automatically cancel attendee room reservations, issuing an email confirmation with instructions to reinstate should a registrant choose to go on their own at the discounted meeting room rate. The resort will also automatically cancel and process a refund for College private tour/events purchased directly with them online.

The College is planning to return to the Coeur d’Alene Resort for the 2023 College Annual Meeting.

Plan now to join your colleagues for an extended weekend spring break of golf, the ocean and the St. Patrick’s Day festivals of downtown Savannah, Georgia March 19 -22 for the 2021 Annual College Meeting.

The meeting’s General and Scientific Program Chair Dr. Jae Hyun Park has put together an outstanding program on “Excellence in Clinical Orthodontics.” Go to for program details and watch for information to sign-up this summer!

The next Prep Course for the ABO Scenario-based Oral Clinical Exam offered by the College of Diplomates is slated for October 17, 2020 held in conjunction with the Southern Association of Orthodontists Annual Session in Nashville. Register directly with the College at for the Prep Course.
