Faculty Dental Practice – Orthodontics

Orthodontic Faculty Practice Heading link

UIC Department of Orthodontics Faculty Dental Practice

The University Of Illinois at Chicago, Orthodontic Faculty Practice provides exceptional quality care by expert clinicians who are full-time faculty members who have completed advanced training in orthodontics and have many years of clinical experience. They are at the forefront of the orthodontics profession, publishing research and teaching the next generation of dentists and orthodontic specialists.

The faculty clinic is almost like a private orthodontic practice, but the most recent advances in technology and current research shape our orthodontics practice philosophy. We treat orthodontic patients using various methods to provide them with a beautiful smile and improve the bite. We provide all aspects of orthodontic care to children, teens, and adults. Our practice works in conjunction with other UIC Dentistry practices to help patients who need interdisciplinary treatment and care, such as oral surgery.
