Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Certificate Program

CTOR Academy Advanced Education Program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics is a 36-month program that provides to dentists (domestic and international) specialty training in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.

Our program is founded on the belief that the best clinician for delivering the highest quality of care for our Orthodontics patients is someone who is both an exceptional Orthodontist and an exceptional translational scientist. Our graduates will be immersed in a new practice model in which they will actively engage in designing and testing innovative approaches to Orthodontics treatment. Our graduates will learn to work within a Practice-Based Research Network where teams of community-based clinicians and academia-based researchers partner to design novel Orthodontics treatments.


CTOR Academy graduates will play critical roles in designing the translational studies, collecting and analyzing data, and disseminating the findings to global Orthodontics and Craniofacial Biology communities.
