Two advanced dental education programs are offered through the Department of Orthodontics. The programs, although not mutually exclusive, have different professional and educational objectives. The first of these is a 36-month clinical program that fulfills the educational requirements of the American Association of Orthodontics. In conjunction with the certificate program, a mandatory Master of Science in Orthodontics is pursued with clinical training. Residents earn a Certificate of Advanced Study in Orthodontics and a Master of Science degree upon completion.
This program is officially registered with the New York State Education Department (SED).
