Graduate Orthodontics Program


One of the leading programs in the country, our 27-month Graduate Orthodontic Program prepares residents to provide excellent treatment based on contemporary biologic orthodontic principles. Launched in 1971, the program is fully accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation and is recognized for educational eligibility by the American Board of Orthodontics.

Working in a collegial atmosphere of mutual respect, our residents receive training from expert faculty members from across the United States. The rigorous curriculum is a combination of didactic courses, strong clinical experience and research.

Each year, the Dugoni School receives more than 200 applications for the coveted eight spots per class. Upon successful completion of the program, our residents graduate with a master's of science degree in dentistry and a certificate in orthodontics.
