The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) has named Scott Jamieson, DDS, MS, Marquette, Mich, as its president. Marvin Kastrop, DDS, MS, Billings, Mont, is the president-elect; and Paul Castelein, DDS, MS, Princeton, Ill, is secretary/treasurer. Barry Briss, DMD, Boston, is the immediate past president.

The ABO has one director from each of the eight constituent organizations of the AAO. Each director serves an 8-year term, which culminates in the position of the president. The ABO directors are responsible for establishing policy with regard to the board certification of specialists in orthodontics. During his tenure as an ABO director, Jamieson (pictured) has represented the Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists (GLAO). “It is incumbent upon each one of us as orthodontists to promote excellence, not only in our profession but also in our practices,” Jamieson said. “We are ethically obligated to protect the public who seek our orthodontic care, and must always strive to be the ‘best we can be.’ We must commit to being a lifelong student both academically and clinically.”

Jamieson earned his DDS from the Northwestern University School of Dentistry in 1972. He specialized in orthodontics, graduating with his master’s degree from the Northwestern University School of Dentistry in 1974. He served as a staff orthodontist in the US Navy from 1974 to 1976. He is an adjunct assistant clinical professor in the Department of Orthodontics at Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, and is in private practice in Marquette, Mich. He is a past president of the GLAO, the Michigan Association of Orthodontists and the Superior District Dental Society. A Diplomate of the ABO since 1991, Jamieson is a member of the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics; he is also a member of the AAO. He has served as a GLAO delegate and/or alternate delegate to the AAO House of Delegates and has served on the AAO Council on Orthodontic Practice and the AAO Council on Orthodontic Health Care.
