The department strives to attract and educate the nation's most promising students in order to bring patients the very best in oral health care, ranging from primary care to the most advanced technology available. We encourage and
support research and scholarly activities in the disciplines of pediatric dentistry and orthodontics.
Through these research and clinical education programs we hope to advance the basic understanding of the causes, mechanisms, treatment and prevention of malocclucions and oral diseases. We also strive to improve the oral health care of children, adolescents and adults in Kentucky.
Our talented faculty and residents serve the community at large, while also training students to achieve specialty certification in pediatrics or orthodontics.
