Graduate Orthodontics Program

Orthodontics Curriculum

Curriculum and Clinical Emphasis

The curriculum was developed to meet the program goals and objectives. Approximately 50% of the first year is didactics and 50% clinical care with an anticipated minimum of 40 patient starts. The remaining months involve 25% didactics and the remainder of the time spent in clinical activities, teaching, and research. The clinical emphasis is on the use of contemporary edgewise appliances in conjunction with functional and other orthopedic appliances to treat children, adolescents and adults using both routine orthodontics and orthognathic surgery. Participation in craniofacial anomaly boards and patients is required.
