ABO Report

Graduate Orthodontic Resident Program (GORP)
GORP 2020 was canceled because of COVID-19.
Plans are underway for the ABO's participation
during the 2021 event.
World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO)
ABO directors were invited to present at the
Ninth International Orthodontic Congress 2020
meeting, initially scheduled in Yokohama, Japan;
however, the physical meeting was canceled and
held virtually. In response, the ABO directors participated in the virtual meeting and presented information on board certification. In addition, the
ABO directors submitted an article for inclusion in
the Journal of the WFO, titled " Introduction to the
American Board of Orthodontics Scenario-based
Clinical Examination. "
Educational Update
The ABO continues to develop study materials to
prepare for the scenario-based clinical examination, including a study guide, sample cases, and
videos. In addition, the ABO works closely with
examiners and orthodontic program educators,
requesting their feedback and assistance with the
new exam format and item writing process.
ABO advocates continue to be appointed for each
orthodontic program as a resource to residents
interested in additional board certification information.
To add value to board-certified orthodontists,
the ABO is proud to introduce an orthodontic
specialty video on the importance of using a
specialist. This professionally created video was
explicitly developed for board-certified orthodontists to feature in the lobby or patient waiting
areas, websites, social channels, and patient
consultations. The ABO continues to offer online
educational materials to allow board-certified orthodontists to speak in a unified voice to include
an educational toolkit, brand standards guide,
sample website wording, press release, pathway
graphic, window clings, and consumer brochure.
Board-certified orthodontists also have access to

14	

a personal, online dashboard. Enhanced software
allows for improved functionality on the ABO
website to include an orthodontist locator with
the ability to list multiple offices, user-specific
dashboard notifications, print complimentary
verification letters, and track personal continuing
education credit hours.
The ABO's April 2020 Educators Symposium, " The
Change is Here-Are You on Board? " honoring Dr.
Katherine Vig, was canceled because of COVID-19.
Instead of the physical meeting in St. Louis, a
PowerPoint presentation with important examination information and updates was distributed
to department chairs and program directors of
CODA-accredited orthodontic programs in the
United States and Canada. The ABO will announce plans to reschedule the symposium for
the fall of 2021.
Complimentary ABO measuring gauges were
distributed to first-year residents at requesting
CODA-accredited orthodontic programs.
In preparation for the AAO's 2021 Annual Session,
the ABO plans to host an Educator/Advocate
Workshop again and an ABO Open House/Info
Session to share updates, answer questions, and
provide educational information on the written
and clinical examinations. The ABO will also have
an information booth located in the convention
center to provide information on the board certification process.
ABO Award Recognition
Because of the cancellation of the 2020 AAO Annual Session, the award ceremonies honoring the
2020 recipients could not take place. Therefore,
these individuals will be recognized during the
2021 Annual Session in Boston, Massachusetts,
during a newly established ABO Awards Night.
No additional award recipients will be identified
for 2021.
The following 2020 ABO award recipients who
will be recognized in 2021 include:
