The AAO is seeking entries for its first annual New Products Showcase Award, open to new products and services launched since May 2022.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) is accepting submissions for the inaugural AAO New Products Showcase Award.

All entries must be received by March 10, 2023. The New Products Showcase Award competition will take place at AAO’s Annual Session in Chicago on April 22-24, 2023, and is open to all exhibitors.

The New Products Showcase Award is part of an ongoing effort to support innovation among industry suppliers. Businesses considered eligible to enter the competition are exhibitors at the 2023 Annual Session offering new products or services for orthodontic treatment or orthodontic practice management.

Orthodontist attendees at AAO Annual Session select the winners by voting onsite for their favorite new product entry.

“The New Products Showcase Award is just one way the AAO is committed to driving transformation and innovation in our specialty and supporting industry suppliers,” said Norman Nagel, DDS, MS, AAO president. “The AAO developed the New Products Showcase Award in recognition that many exhibitors plan their new product launches around the AAO Annual Session. I encourage all exhibitors with a new product to enter.”

The New Products Showcase Award competition was created to offer exposure to new products or services that have been launched since May 2022. All entries will be promoted at the New Products Showcase in the Innovation Pavilion in the exhibit hall.

Winners will be announced on Monday afternoon at the 2023 Annual Session to all attendees and through AAO publications and press releases. The product that wins Best-In-Show, can market the award throughout the year.
