The Oregon Health & Science University’s Department of Orthodontics and its specialty clinic are housed in the state of the art School of Dentistry building, completed in 2014.  Department personnel include many highly dedicated faculty and staff with varied backgrounds, providing a wealth of experience for classroom teaching and clinical care. Activities of the department have also been strengthened through strong support by the OHSU Orthodontic Alumni Association and orthodontists in the region.

We emphasize a team approach to dentistry and orthodontics and focus on developing customized treatment approaches for each of our patients, resulting in a thorough and diverse educational program for our students.  The strengths and positive atmosphere of the graduate program have given us strong success in recruiting highly talented post-doctoral students from practice settings and pre-doctoral education programs across the country.  Through continual updating of courses and maintenance of a strong research agenda, we have worked to achieve a balanced program founded on excellent clinical training and a commitment to providing optimal service to our patients.
