Graduate Orthodontics

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of the Graduate Orthodontic Program at Texas A&M University School of Dentistry is to train highly skilled clinicians who will provide evidence-based, patient-centered care and excel as members of the orthodontic community. This residency requires scientific research culminating in a Master’s Degree in Oral Biology. Our graduates develop critical thinking skills while making significant contributions to the art and science of the specialty of orthodontics.

Our goal is to impart in-depth knowledge of the biological and mechanical principles governing the practice of orthodontics and to allow students to develop excellent proficiency in orthodontics while treating a wide variety of complex malocclusions. We deliver high quality care utilizing a variety of treatment techniques from a team of over 20 board-certified practitioners and educators.
