Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry

Orthodontic Patient Information

The University of Michigan School of Dentistry provides all levels of orthodontic care for all ages. Particularly simple care is available at cost effective prices in the Undergraduate Clinic by dental students under the care and supervision of our faculty. Full orthodontic treatment is available in both our Graduate Orthodontic Practice and our Orthodontic Faculty Practice. 

Orthodontic treatment at the U-M School of Dentistry is performed in the Robert W. Browne Orthodontic Clinic. The department utilizes digital x-rays and digital photographs for the most up to date diagnosis and treatment planning available.  In addition to the modern tools we use for diagnosis and treatment planning, novel treatment techniques including invisalign and other forms of esthetic braces are available.
