Board & Staff

The Southern California Orofacial Academy is a nonprofit study group operating under the direction of the board of directors with daily management by Susan Smith, executive director. We are fortunate to have three meeting associates and two office assistants in addition to our consultants for website, social media and accounting.

Open here to meet the people who are dedicated to maintaining the organization, ensuring stability and growth, and providing two continuing education meetings every year.
