Founded in 1943 by Professor Hermann Becks of the University of California, the Mission of The American Institute of Oral Biology for the past 72 years has been to provide a forum to emphasize the application of basic and clinical research to the prevention and treatment of oral disease.
The AIOB offers the practitioner the opportunity for knowledge enhancement in allied clinical fields as well as those more traditionally associated with dentistry. This exposure enables the healthcare provider to recognize incipient threats to the health of the patient and to develop improved treatment methods. Oral Biology is not a specialized field, but rather is a union of disciplines that seeks to apply knowledge to the daily practice of dentistry and medicine. It encourages the consideration of clinical problems as involving the whole individual rather than as a simple concern of regional pathology.
The Institute has been successful for the past 72 years in serving as a meeting ground for the academically orientated researcher and the treatment-conscious clinician. We continue to promote this mutually beneficial exchange of ideas.
