Dedicated to educating orthodontists to achieve continuing orthodontic excellence since 1930

Welcome to Angle East, the Eastern Chapter of the  Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontists (EHASO).

angle_bustEHASO was inaugurated in Chicago on November 17, 1930, a little over three months after the death of Dr. Angle, the cherished mentor of all 46 orthodontists who signed its charter.  Importantly, the charter allowed new members to be drawn from those orthodontists who were dedicated to goals of professional excellence and progress, regardless of whether or not they studied with Dr. Angle.

In the early years of the Eastern Component (now known as Angle East), the founding father and guiding light was Dr. Robert H. W. Strang of Bridgeport. Connecticut, an illustrious graduate of the Angle School of Orthodontia in St. Louis, Class of 1906.  In the 1930s, the group had around 15 members and met one or two times a year.

Today, Angle East hosts a stellar scientific meeting each spring, featuring presentations, studies and discussions from its distinguished membership of approximately 80 orthodontists, who also enjoy the Angle Society’s traditions of warm fellowship and shared values.
