The 2014 Lysle E. Johnston Educational Leadership Conference was held on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

The conference is a meeting of the AAO Society of Educators and requires attendees to be members of the society. All orthodontic educators in the United States and Canada, whether full-time or part-time, pre-doctoral or postdoctoral, may join the society as institutional members (with their departments) or as individual members.

This conference featured educational honoree and keynote speaker, Dr. Lysle E. Johnston.  Breakout sessions focused on educational priorities for graduate orthodontic programs.  Both Drs Bayirli and Riolo participated again this year.  Dr Riolo and Bayirli are proud to call the University of Washington Department of orthodontic their “academic home” and enjoy sharing their time with the future of the orthodontic profession.
