Alpha Omega

Tau chapter is located in Los Angeles at the University of Southern California.

As part of one of the world’s largest private research universities, located in ethnically diverse Los Angeles, the USC School of Dentistry is well positioned to pursue our primary goal of improving the health of all Americans through education, service and research in oral health.

USC Dentistry has educated close to 14,000 health professionals in the art and science of dentistry, including leaders in dental education, research and the dental profession. Today, USC Dentistry prepares oral health professionals in its doctoral dental, dental hygiene, general practice residency and eight advanced specialty education programs. Students can pursue graduate degrees in craniofacial molecular biology and earn other advanced degrees in conjunction with their advanced specialty education.

Today, with our headquarters relocated to Glen Rock, NJ, it is primarily an educational and philanthropic organization. There are chapters and members in cities across the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Israel, South Africa and Australia/New Zealand. Alpha Omega represents about 6,000 active dentists worldwide.
