CASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF DENTAL MEDICINE OFFERS SPECIAL TEEN BRACES PROGRAM
Parents, looking for an orthodontist for their children, may qualify for the 2011 braces program in the Department of Orthodontics at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. The dental clinic is located at 2124 Cornell Rd. on the Case Western Reserve campus in University Circle.
The orthodontic department seeks 250 youths between the ages of 10 and 16, who will become the patients of the incoming class of orthodontic residents. The residents have earned their dental degrees and are in the process of working toward their specialization in orthodontics.
Each youth will receive a free dental examination to assess the patient’s individual needs and form a treatment plan that will be undertaken by the resident under the supervision of experienced orthodontists.
Because patients are seen in the venue of a major research dental school, they will benefit from some of the latest research in the field, as well as new three-dimensional diagnostic tools.
The orthodontic treatments run $3,000 ($2,800 if paid in advance). The dental clinic offers extended payment plans for qualifying patients who meet the criteria for the program and are able to have their teeth corrected within the 30-month resident training. Each qualifying youth will be assigned a resident, who will become his or her specialist throughout their treatment.
Youths with extended orthodontic needs may require specialized treatments can also receive care through other orthodontic programs at the dental school.
