Graduate Orthodontics Program


Orthodontics Curriculum

Residents will spend approximately 50% of the first year in didactics and 50% in clinical care with an anticipated minimum of 40 patients. The remainder of the program shifts to 25% of residents’ time in didactics and 75% with clinical activities, teaching and research. Clinical emphasis is placed 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 with craniofacial anomaly patients and boards is required.​
