Current Meeting

2022 Annual Session in Austin, the Live Music Capital of the World

November 3-5, 2022

Hilton Austin, Austin, Texas


This year the SAO is teaming up with our colleagues from the Midwestern Society of Orthodontists and the Southwestern Society of Orthodontists for a combined annual session.


Our combined Annual Session takes place November 3-5, 2022, at the Hilton Austin, Austin, Texas. Attendees will experience the unique vibe of Austin, from the edge of downtown where tech meets art, to the rough and tumble life on a historic Texas Ranch. There will be delicious Tex-Mex food and, of course, live music every day in the exhibit hall and at our parties.  


Your registration fee includes access to the opening ceremony, exhibit hall and educational sessions, plus meals and happy hours that surround the core of the meeting.


Bringing the family or your team? We recommend you arrive Wednesday so you can take advantage of the activities, tours and experiences we have planned for Thursday morning – take The Real Austin tour to discover what’s unique about Austin, compete in The Ultimate Scavenger Hunt, or bring your legwarmers and neon for the Weird Workout 80s Party.


Fun for Friday and Saturday morning includes goat yoga or a guided walk to the state capitol building. And Friday night we’ll board buses and head out of Austin city limits for party at Star Hill Ranch, a picturesque historic old west town. 


VIP Passes 


Those among the first to register will receive a special VIP access badge. Just like a VIP pass at a concert gives you access to extra perks, the VIP pass at the Austin meeting will give the holders of the pass access to some extras. These include dedicated lines, reserved seating and fun surprises! These passes were not offered at an additional cost, just a fun perk for being one of the first to register.
