The main role of our department is to educate orthodontists who are proficient at treating the broad scope of occlusal and dentofacial malocclusions. Special emphasis is placed on diagnosis and treatment planning, growth and development, biomechanics, and occlusion, using research to help develop critical thinking and writing skills while making a significant contribution to the scientific literature.
