What is Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity?

Alpha Omega is the oldest international dental organization and was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1907 by a group of dental students originally to fight discrimination in dental schools. Today, with its headquarters located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, it is primarily an educational and philanthropic organization. There are chapters and members in cities and dental schools in the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Israel, South Africa and Australia/New Zealand. Alpha Omega represents about 15,000 dentists world-wide.

Alpha Omega is responsible for the formation of both dental schools in Israel; The Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Dentistry and the Tel Aviv University Goldschlager School of Dentistry.

The Alpha Omega Foundation was also responsible for dispersing almost $250,000 this past year for projects in Israel and world-wide.

Lectures, seminars and study groups are promoted by local chapters for member continuing education and similar programs are available from chapters in all parts of the world. Alpha Omega recently was the co-sponsor of an educational project in Hungary. The goals of this program were to improve the community dental health awareness of dental educators in Hungary and to field-test home-care instructional classes for the public schools. This was similar to a project done several years ago in Morocco.
