Welcome to the website of the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists!

The Midwestern Society of Orthodontists (MSO) is a constituent of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). We are comprised of over 1,460 members across the component states of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, as well as the Canadian province of Manitoba. Since 1939, the MSO has continuously strived to support the AAO mission by providing helpful resources, clear communication and strong leadership to component societies and individual members.


Welcome from 2021-2022 President Mark Dake

Dr Mark Dake   Thanks to the MSO board and members for appointing me as your President. It is a privilege to serve. The MSO is in a great position. We are strong financially and our membership is growing. There are challenges ahead but our proactive board is representing you strongly and productively. Our goal as a board is to continue to stay ahead of challenges that are affecting our profession.
