Registration instructions

To register online:

Click the Register Online button. To register yourself, click the Register Now button and proceed with the following steps. To register others in your practice, click the Register Someone Else button and proceed with the following steps. Note: You will be able to register multiple attendees from your practice without logging out or having to enter your credit card information multiple times:

  1. Enter your email address and click the Continue button.

    • Members (including allied staff members) and non-members with an email on file with AAOMS:

      You will be prompted to log in with your username (your email address on file with AAOMS) and password. If you do not recall your password, select “I forgot my password,” and password reset instructions will be emailed to you. (Note: If you do not recall the email address you have on file with AAOMS or the system does not recognize your email address, stop and contact AAOMS headquarters at 800-822-6637 for assistance before proceeding. If you are prompted to enter your contact information, that means you are not connected to your existing profile and membership history.)

    • New registrants:

      You will be prompted to enter a name, address, phone number and a password so an account can be created in order to register for the meeting.

  2. You will be taken through a series of screens to choose sessions and add – if attending in-person – emergency contact and badge information for you and your guests. After you complete your registration, you will be able to register other attendees by clicking the Register Someone Else button. Note: You will need a separate and unique email address for each individual you register for a meeting. General emails, such as office@yourpractice.com, should not be used.

  3. Payment must be made by American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa at the time of registration. You will receive an on-screen notification when your payment and registration have been accepted, followed by a payment confirmation email. Each registrant with a valid email address will receive a meeting registration confirmation via email. Please retain a copy of the confirmation for your records.

If you need to change your registration after you receive the confirmation, fax a copy of the confirmation with a note of the changes and your payment information to the AAOMS registration department at 847-678-6279. This is a secure fax number.

Note for allied staff members: If you have applied for the AAOMS allied staff membership but have yet to receive confirmation of your membership, you will not be able to receive the reduced allied staff membership registration rate. Please wait until your membership is confirmed prior to registering online for the Annual Meeting. If you have not completed an application and would like to become an allied staff member, visit AAOMS.org/AlliedStaff and complete the registration process. Retroactive refunds cannot be issued for applications received after the online Annual Meeting registration process has been completed.

Registering by mail or fax

The advance registration deadline is July 31. Registration fees vary based on the date your registration form is received at AAOMS headquarters. Professional OMS staff must include practice name on their forms.

Mail or fax the completed registration form with the appropriate payment to AAOMS.

Secure fax: 847-678-6279

Confirmation of your registration will be emailed to you within a few weeks after receipt of your registration form and fees.

Payment

Payment in full must accompany each registration form. Payment in U.S. dollars only may be made by check (payable to AAOMS) or by American Express, Discover, MasterCard or Visa. 

Registration packets

If you register by July 31, your registration packet will be mailed to you in early September. Registration packets include meeting badges, badge holders and any purchased tickets.

Bring your meeting badge and tickets to the Annual Meeting. You will not need to stand in line to check in onsite if you have already received your badge and tickets.

AAOMS regrets that it is unable to mail registration packets to addresses outside the United States and Canada. All international (non-U.S. and non-Canada) registrants must check in onsite at the AAOMS Will Call/International Packet Pick-up counter.

Registration packets will not be mailed to online-only attendees. Online-only attendees will receive detailed instructions on how to access the online meeting closer to the date of the event.

Registrations after July 31

All registration forms received after July 31 will be charged the onsite registration fee. Registration packets for any registrations received after July 31 must be picked up onsite at the Will Call/International Packet Pick-up counter.

Onsite Attendee Registration Center and ticket sales

In-person meeting attendees who have not registered in advance must register onsite at the AAOMS Attendee Registration Center in the Music City Center in Nashville.

Ticket information

The general registration fee entitles attendees to participate in clinical tracks, didactic sessions, abstract presentations and practice management sessions at no additional cost. Tickets are not required to attend these sessions and admittance will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Select fees apply to the Preconference programs, hands-on clinical sessions and some social events. Tickets are required for admission to sessions and events that have additional fees.

Tickets may be purchased through advance registration. After Sept. 17, tickets (if still available) will be sold only onsite at the AAOMS Attendee Registration Center in the Music City Center. Because ticketed sessions and events have limited attendance, you are encouraged to register early.

Registered attendees who need a replacement badge or tickets should visit the Replacement Badge counter.
