Department of Orthodontics

The Department of Orthodontics has a predoctoral and postdoctoral component. The postdoctoral program has two tracks which, although not mutually exclusive, have different professional and educational objectives. The first of these, the Postgraduate course, is the clinical training activity of the Department. All six entering students must be accepted into this program before they may apply for admission to the Graduate School for the second program which culminates in the Master of Science degree. The Postdoctoral program has been in existence since 1947 and is designed to prepare the student for the specialized practice of orthodontics. This is a full-time 36 month program which leads to a Certificate of Proficiency in Orthodontics.


As a proud member of the prestigious Association of American Universities (AAU), the University at Buffalo is committed to discovery, both basic and applied research, development and scholarship particularly related to oral health and disease.


The tradition of practicing dentists taking time to teach is as old as dentistry itself; the central role of practitioners as faculty is as old as the earliest organized dental schools.



Established in 1892, the School of Dental Medicine continues to educate general practitioners, specialists and biomedical scientists in the art and science of oral health through our comprehensive accredited programs.
