Applicants who are interested in a 2-quarter program should apply for the Orthodontics Preceptorship Program.

The Orthodontics Advanced Clinical Training Program is a full-time clinical and academic program for internationally trained dental school graduates and practitioners who seek introductory orthodontic clinical experience and knowledge. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be able to recognize patients requiring orthodontic therapy and understand the treatment modalities in achieving esthetic and functionally acceptable occlusion for patients with moderately severe malocclusion. This program is not intended for individuals who have already completed orthodontic training in their home countries and are seeking additional educational experiences. Please see the Advanced Orthodontics Advanced Clinical Training Program if this is the case.
