Orthodontics Graduate Program

We are currently not accepting any new patient applications. You are welcome to check back over the summer of 2020 to see when we'll be accepting new patients again.

Treatment is delivered under direct supervision of a fully licensed orthodontist 

  • To change an existing appointment, please call (780) 407-5600 ext 1.
  • To become a patient with the Orthodontic Program you must have your dentist fill in our Orthodontic Pre-Screening Oral Assessment form before applying for a diagnostic screening assessment. We will not consider a patient for orthodontic treatment until the teeth are in optimum condition.
  • The Oral Assessment form must be completed prior to attending a screening assessment. If this form is not signed by your dentist and brought to the screening, you will have to reapply to the program.
  • If you do not have a general dentist, you can contact the Dentistry Program. This is not a referral to the Dentistry Program. Acceptance to that program is based on their specific educational requirements. To become a patient contact the Dentistry & Dental Hygiene Programs or call (780) 407-5550.
  • Once you are ready to apply for orthodontic treatment, please call (780) 407-5590 or complete and submit our online application.
  • There may be a wait list to book your first appointment - the diagnostic screening assessment. This wait time can range from 3-6 months. As soon as your name reaches the top of the wait list, someone from our office will contact you to book the appointment. The assessment costs $20.
  • Some patients will not be accepted for treatment. We will let you know about this decision within a few weeks of your screening assessment.
  • Monthly payment plans are available. Once you are accepted for treatment they will be discussed at a consultation appointment. Typically, your orthodontic costs will range from $5,500 to $7,000 depending on complexity of treatment.

Considerations before applying to be a patient

  • Our hours (9:00 am to noon, and 1:00 to 4:00 pm): If missing school or work for appointments is not an option, a private practice might suit your needs better.
  • Your flexibility with appointments: When you are accepted to the program you will be assigned to a specific clinical session which will only occur on a certain day of the week. For example, one clinical session may only be offered on alternating Tuesdays, while another is limited to one Monday each month. Based on your clinical session assignment, there will only be certain days we can schedule your appointments, with the exception of emergency appointments.
