Orthodontics Clerkship

Advanced Dental Education

Orthodontics Clerkship

The clerkship is custom-designed to provide observational clinical learning experiences and experiences with one-on-one instruction and supervision of patients with complex medical needs and challenging cases rendered in various environments using a variety of modalities.



The curriculum is tailored to the desires of the dentist/orthodontist with experiences in clinical orthodontics, orthodontic case analysis, clinical or basic research and didactic orthodontic courses. This course is designed to give the individual an experience in clinical orthodontics that will better equip them to treat their patients. The dentist/orthodontist can observe in the faculty’s intramural practice or the graduate clinic. In addition, they may attend departmentally offered courses and clinical case conferences that the orthodontic residents take.

No direct patient care is included in this experience.


The clerkship is designed to allow the dentist/orthodontist the opportunity to focus their study on a special interest area within their discipline.


Will vary based on the individual interests of the participant.
