The goal of the Department of Orthodontics is to provide orthodontic care that is specific and appropriate to the needs of each patient. The College of Dentistry offers high quality care in a convenient setting. Patients are treated using contemporary and advanced techniques under strict infection control guidelines.
The postdoctoral clinic offers comprehensive treatment of malocclusion ("braces") provided by dentists who are in training to be orthodontists.
The minor tooth movement clinic offers care by students in the D.D.S. program of our college.
The faculty practice provides treatment in a setting that is similar to a private office, but with all the resources of College of Dentistry and Health Sciences Center close at hand. Services performed by residents and students in the postdoctoral and minor tooth movement clinics are carefully supervised by members of the faculty. These clinics are primarily for teaching and only patients who meet the educational needs of the department are selected for treatment. Please be aware that treatment may take more time in the resident and student clinics.
We accept patients having all types of malocclusions, ranging from very simple to extremely complex conditions. To treat skeletal jaw disharmonies, the Department has developed very close working relationships with the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the UIC Craniofacial Center. If you think we may be able to help you, please call us at 312.996.7505.
Our clinic is part of the College of Dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The newly-remodelled clinic features an open design and provides a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere for the patients and personnel. It is conveniently located on the first floor of the College of Dentistry in Room 131.
