Orthodontics (M.S. & Certificate)
Seton Hill’s Advanced Specialty Education Program in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics combines didactic, clinical and research components leading to both a Master of Science and Certificate in Orthodontics.
The 30-month program includes an intensive, full-time course of study as well as supervised clinical training in various contemporary orthodontic techniques.
The program begins with a week-long orientation in July, with courses and clinical work starting immediately thereafter. 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 orthodontic clinical facility.
As the written portion of the American Board of Orthodontics exam is part of the course of study at Seton Hill, residents are eligible for additional certification through the ABO once they have fulfilled clinical requirements.
The Center for Orthodontics
The University’s new Center for Orthodontics incorporates the latest technology with specialized equipment to provide the highest standard of treatment for patients, and an optimal learning experience for residents.
