Orthodontics, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 30 months


The clinical training of orthodontic residents encompasses all aspects of current orthodontic practice including, full treatment cases with bands and brackets, early treatment, adult treatment, craniofacial anomalies, orthognathic surgery, clear thermoplastic aligners, laser surgery and temporary anchorage devices (TADS). One of the strengths of this program is the clinical exposure during residency, with residents using a wide variety of techniques, and often having more than 75 patients under their care.  The clinical outcome assessments in place help assure that the graduate is ready to become a competent orthodontist, and often all the patient cases required for board certification will be completed upon graduation.  Since the 1930s, the Case Western Reserve University Orthodontic program has been a leader in craniofacial imaging beginning with the historic Bolton Brush Growth Study and continuing with  cutting edge three dimensional  imaging in our Craniofacial Imaging Center.
