The Orthodontic program at the University of Maryland provides its residents with a sound didactic background in craniofacial biology and growth and development. Residents are exposed to many different Orthodontic techniques and appliances. Since the postdoctoral clinic is situated in the University of Maryland School of Dentistry on the campus of the Health Sciences Center of the University of Maryland, residents have a chance to work in conjunction with other dental and medical specialists. Residents are introduced to a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that includes TMD diagnosis and treatment, surgical-orthodontic treatment, and pre- and post-restorative treatment, including implant restorations. The Orthodontic program also provides its residents with experience as instructors, teaching both laboratory and clinical orthodontics to predoctoral dental students at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry. All residents must conduct an original research project during their three years in the program. At the end of the project, the residents must prepare a paper about their study and defend their thesis to a panel of faculty members.
