The Brooks Rehabilitation College of Healthcare Sciences, School of Orthodontics offers The Advanced Specialty Education Program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in a 24-month certificate program. The program combines didactic, clinical, and research components, leading to a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (C.A.G.S.) in Orthodontics. Students undertake an intensive, continuous, full-time course of study as well as supervised clinical training by expert orthodontic faculty in various contemporary orthodontic techniques. The course of study begins with orientation in July with course work and clinic starting in mid-August of each year. By the end of the first year it is expected that each student initiates comprehensive orthodontic treatment for at least fifty (50) patients after completion of a pre-clinical training course. Students are introduced to a variety of treatment philosophies, with an emphasis on pre-adjusted appliances and related techniques. Supervising clinical faculty present their philosophies in daily diagnosis and treatment planning seminars. A variety of clinical techniques are demonstrated and utilized in the school’s state-of-the-art orthodontic clinical facility.
