"We are very eager to share with students information about the wide variety of career opportunities related to the orthodontic specialty," said AAO President Dr. Frederick G. Preis of Bel Air, Md.Dr. Preis said that this is the second year that the AAO has joined the national Groundhog Job Shadow Day effort.
Kicking off February 1 and continuing throughout the year, job shadow programs will bring students across America and Canada into orthodontic offices and other workplaces.Students will "shadow" workplace mentors, including orthodontists and orthodontic staff members, during a typical day on the job.The effort is jointly led by America's Promise -- The Alliance for Youth, the National School-to-Work Opportunities Office, Junior Achievement, the American Society of Association Executives, the Society for Human Resource Management and the National Job Shadow Coalition.
Groundhog Job Shadow Day is supported via sponsorships by and News Corporation.
"Orthodontics is a wonderful career path and has much to offer future orthodontic staff members and aspiring doctors," said Dr. Preis."Every member of the orthodontic health care team contributes to the well-being of orthodontic patients.Team members help change people's lives for the better, and usually find their jobs very rewarding."
There are many fulfilling opportunities in the field of orthodontics for young people and for adults who are returning to the workforce or changing careers.
Most orthodontic staff jobs fall into one of three categories, according to Dr. Preis: administrative positions, including entry-level clerical assistants to high-level practice administrators and managers; orthodontic assistant positions, which involve clinical assistance with patient treatment; and technical positions, in which laboratory technicians make orthodontic treatment appliances.
Specific duties of orthodontic assistants vary according to state regulations, and may vary from practice to practice within a state.Orthodontic laboratory technicians may work in individual orthodontic practices or at large dental laboratories.
At the professional level, each practice has at least one orthodontist.Orthodontists are uniquely qualified to correct "bad bites," using treatment plans that usually include braces and other orthodontic appliances.To be an orthodontist, the American Dental Association requires at least two academic years of advanced specialty training in orthodontics in an accredited program, after graduation from dental school.
"Anyone interested in helping people achieve better quality of life and better dental health should investigate career opportunities within orthodontics," says Dr. Preis.
The American Association of Orthodontists has more than 13,500 members in the United States, Canada and abroad.For more information about the orthodontic specialty and orthodontic careers, visit the AAO online at . For more information about Groundhog Job Shadow Day, visit .
Students interested in participating in the GJSD program should contact their school guidance counselors, or local offices of Junior Achievement or School-to-Work.

"If it's sticky, chewy, hard or crunchy, it's a food that anyone wearing braces or retainers should avoid," says Dr. Frederick G. Preis, President of the AAO.
October is National Orthodontic Health Month, and orthodontists urge patients to steer clear of caramel, gum and taffy.AAO members also advise those in treatment to beware of popcorn, peanuts and taco chips.And braces or not, no one should ever chew ice.
Orthodontists frequently remind patients that consuming "off limit" foods could lengthen their treatment time."Sneaking food that could harm your braces may affect treatment - just as if you weren't tending to oral hygiene or wearing your rubber bands," notes Dr. Preis.For patients wearing a retainer, remember: remove it before indulging - especially before bobbing for apples at the Halloween party. (And don't wrap it in a napkin.Retainers end up in the trash more often than you might think.) Once removed from the mouth, orthodontists advise patients to place retainers in their cases for safekeeping.Well, what if a patient chooses to chew on the wrong treat and damages braces?Contact your orthodontist so that arrangements can be made to correct the problem."Usually small problems can be solved over the phone.Loose or protruding brackets or wires can be held in place with orthodontic wax until the patient can come into the office," Dr. Preis says.
Of course Halloween does not have to be completely treat-less.Plain chocolate candy is OK, provided you remember to brush afterwards."We want patients to have fun while in orthodontic treatment," emphasizes Dr. Preis.
