Association of Philippine Orthodontists

Association of Philippine Orthodontists is a claim to fame association established in 1980 to advance and support an exclusive expectation of brilliance in orthodontic treatment and instruction. We are perceived universally as a subsidiary society of the World Federation of Orthodontists, a sanction individual from the Asian Pacific Orthodontic Society (APOS) and licensed by the Philippine Board of Dentistry. At one time it made the Orthodontic Teachers Organization (ORTO) whose individuals included employees from the diverse Colleges of Dentistry that endeavored to redesign undergrad orthodontic educational programs across the nation and create orthodontic staff. APO individuals made up the personnel for University of the Philippines Graduate Program in Orthodontics that opened in 1989 and in this way contributed graduate orthodontic employees to the Manila Central University program and sometime recently, to the University of Baguio. A portion of the main pre and post War Filipino orthodontic specialists may have included Dr. Francisco Ponce, a 1908 University of Illinois graduate, Dr. Jose Lerma a 1920 Stanford graduate who instructed "orthodontia" at the nearby schools, Dr. Origination D. Gutierrez who took in her ortho from a Dr. Foulk, a German displaced person from Hitler's cleanse of Jews in 1938, Dr. Nieva Basa Eraña-Velasquez who was the principal Filipino lady dental practitioner who really took a 2-year course in the University of Maryland for orthodontics. APO’s development authoritatively can be followed to the1970s, when then there were just 8 formally-prepared orthodontic professionals in Metro Manila. Dr. Vicente R.
