Andrew PedersenAndrew Pedersen, DDS '14, decided to pursue his orthodontics residency at UMSOD because of the world-class program and exceptional faculty. "I'm looking forward to building relationships with my fellow residents and faculty members and learning as much as I possibly can over the next three years."

Kara AchilleKara Achille, DMD, who completed her dental training at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, chose UMSOD because of the school's great reputation.
