Alpha Omega International
As both the oldest international dental organization and oldest international Jewish medical organization, Alpha Omega has a distinguished history of promoting the fellowship and scholarship that has helped shape and improve the profession of dentistry. At the base of Alpha Omega’s fundaments is inclusion to all in order to fight discrimination. AO was founded in 1907 at the University of Maryland School of Dental Medicine. At a time when Jewish students were not allowed to form social groups, dental students at UMSOD came together to form AO and fight this discrimination.
