Pre-doctoral courses in the Department of Orthodontics, as outlined by the American Dental Association, apply knowledge derived from the basic sciences, research, and clinical treatment to the science of orthodontics so that the dental graduate will have the background necessary to recognize those conditions they are capable of managing. Clinical experiences range from minor tooth movement and early treatment cases to more difficult, advanced cases—according to the student's demonstrated ability, perseverance, judgment, and interest in orthodontics.
