Orthodontics Resident Clinic - Parnassus


The UCSF Dental Center’s Resident Orthodontic Clinic provides exceptional quality care by residents pursuing orthodontic specialty training under the guidance of experienced and internationally recognized faculty. All orthodontic specialty residents have completed a dental degree (DDS or equivalent) and are in a three-year training program to become orthodontic specialists.

Each treatment plan is developed by the resident, together with an attending faculty member. Visits can take longer, and fees in the resident clinic are lower than in the faculty clinic or at other private practices.
