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. Successful completion of the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) written examination 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.
