Fall 2015 Applications will be accepted:

This advanced dental education program for the specialty of Orthodontics is a three-year program preparing our graduates for a career in clinical and/or academic orthodontics.  Residents will be exposed to extensive clinical and research experience with teaching requirements.  A Masters research project is required for those individuals who have not previously completed a Masters Degree.  A successful ABO Board certification is mandatory.

Travel opportunities for courses offered outside of the department’s curriculum are encouraged and, in some cases, required.  To broaden the learning experience, a medical teaching model is expected, whereby senior, junior, and first-year residents work as teams in conjunction with the faculty.  Independent thinking with mutual respect is strongly encouraged.

Collapse All Expand All

The orthodontic clinic belonging to the School of Dental Medicine of the University at Buffalo fills a number of educational, as well as therapeutic, functions.  The clinic provides the Western New York public with high quality orthodontic care according to the standards demanded by the American Board of Orthodontics.  The orthodontic patients are treated by the residents in the Orthodontic Department under the care of highly skilled specialist orthodontists. 

The orthodontic clinic provides the residents with a valuable opportunity to apply the latest treatment techniques while also providing the patients under their care with treatment that is of the highest caliber. 

The clinical course of instruction is designed to satisfy all of the requirements that make the orthodontic residents eligible for certification as a specialist with the American Board of Orthodontics.

The postgraduate residents admitted to the orthodontic program are expected to demonstrate a high level of clinic proficiency and professionalism of the highest standard.  At the end of the three-year course, the residents are expected to graduate with a certificate in specialist orthodontics in conjunction with a Masters Degree in the same discipline.
