Ortho Department


 Our Mission: Innovating knowledge for life changing smiles
 Our Vision: Leading Orthodontic excellence and innovation

The Orthodontic Department has as its objective the education of excellent, ethical, compassionate, and versatile practitioners in the art and science of orthodontics. In addition, the program will provide a basis for graduates to pursue an academic career if they so desire.

The department is active in teaching, research, and service. Our postdoctoral students consistently score in the upper quintile of the National Board Examination and our graduate students have all taken and passed the American Board of Orthodontics Phase II Examination prior to graduation. One of our graduate students obtained the highest score in a recent American Board of Orthodontics Phase III written examination. The quality of our graduate students is one of our proudest assets.
