Orthodontics (AEODO) Internship


The Internship in Orthodontics at Roseman University is an 11 month (July-June), non-accredited, certificate program. This program is intended for select dental school graduates who have a desire to enhance their knowledge and understanding of orthodontic treatment and the everyday practice of orthodontics as a dental specialty, as well as those who would like to enhance their preparation for a future orthodontic residency program.


The Internship in Orthodontic at Roseman University is designed to allow the intern the opportunity to learn in a collaborative environment. The interns will be participating in didactic learning, problem-based seminars, clinical activity, and research endeavors. Didactic learning will include, but is not limited to, fundamentals of orthodontic treatment planning, cephalometrics, biomechanics, growth and development, radiographic imaging and interpretation, as well other topics in contemporary orthodontic education.

Interns will have the opportunity to participate hands on in the clinic with orthodontic residents and faculty. Additionally, they will be able to observe and participate in infant craniofacial orthodontic techniques and treatment. As the intern progresses, certain procedures may be assigned to them for independent clinical treatment.

Interns will also participate in research activities based on their individual level of comfort. Research activity may include working with faculty on projects already in progress at many different milestones, including data collection, data analysis, or manuscript preparation.
