The clinical training is complemented by a comprehensive didactic curriculum. Regularly scheduled lectures cover topics in growth and development, biomechanics, occlusion, biostatistics, research methodology, treatment planning, temporomandibular disorders, interceptive treatment, adult treatment, dentofacial orthopedics, orthognathic surgery, oral pathology, interdisciplinary care and craniofacial anomalies. Residents also actively participate in a journal club and literature review, to keep abreast of the latest advances in orthodontic practices.
Residents are encouraged to attend national and regional conferences and continuing education programs. These events introduce residents to different philosophies and methods of treatment. Attendance at particular conferences is required (e.g., Six Elements of Orofacial Harmony).
