      Program Description ↑ 

      The Advanced Specialty Education Program in Orthodontics strives to develop proficiency in treatment planning and treatment of a wide variety of malocclusions using multiple appliance techniques and treatment philosophies.

      Residents treat a broad range of patients with an emphasis on the adolescent. In addition, they perform age appropriate treatment for patients in the mixed dentition and manage adults requiring aligner, surgical, interdisciplinary or temporomandibular dysfunction treatment.

      The program length is 34.5 months, with graduates receiving both a certificate in Orthodontics and a Masters Degree in Oral Biology upon completion of their requirements. In addition to our Full-Time Faculty, the Department employs over 20 highly experienced Part-Time Clinical Faculty who supervise the treatment of resident cases on a weekly basis. In addition to the Full and Part-Time Orthodontic Faculty, instruction is provided by faculty from other departments within the College and by invited guest lecturers and consultants. The Department has eight full-time staff members who support both the main and research clinics.

      The major focus of Departmental Research involves clinical studies. Both clinical and laboratory investigations are performed in state of the art facilities and supported by clinical and basic science faculty throughout the College. Our heralded research initiatives are supported by the College’s Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, the Robert E. Gaylord Endowed Chair in Orthodontics, the Peter H. Buschang Endowed Professorship for Orthodontic Research, and the Kimberly Campbell Endowment for Orthodontic Research. The Department is also supported by a strong and active alumni organization. Alumni volunteer as instructors for special technique courses and frequently lecture in the consultants program. Graduates have served in all levels of the professional community.

      The Department has a long history of educating orthodontists dedicated to excellence. Today’s Faculty and Staff are committed to upholding and enhancing that storied tradition.
