Graduate Orthodontics


The Graduate Orthodontic Program is a thirty-month, graduate level curriculum, upon the successful completion of which, the student receives a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics and a certificate to practice orthodontics. The program was established in 1981 to meet the needs of education, patient care, and research in the field of orthodontics, and today, prepares qualified dentists to manage the full range of dentofacial discrepancies that fall within the responsibility of the orthodontist. Students will learn a variety of treatment methods under the supervision of experienced and outstanding faculty and will complete a master's thesis. The program starts July 1st and finishes December 31st.

The program is housed on the fourth floor of the college and in clinic and each graduate student is assigned an exclusive clinic chair that he or she works at. Adjacent to the clinic is the graduate student offices, each shared by two students.

The entire program is a minimum of 70 credit hours of clinical and didactic courses. Each week of the curriculum includes approximately three and a half days of patient treatment in the clinic. Each resident will start approximately 50 new cases from patients who are carefully selected from a large pool of patients seeking orthodontic treatment in the department. This way, each resident has the opportunity to treat a variety of orthodontic problems and cover a wide range of treatment methods.
