Program Overview

The Craniofacial Orthodontics Fellowship program at Seattle Children's Hospital is designed to provide advanced knowledge and skills for the management of craniofacial anomalies. Graduates of the program will have been exposed to the diagnosis, treatment planning and care of a large clinical volume of primarily pediatric patients who have congenital and acquired craniofacial differences. Active participation in ongoing clinical outcome studies and case series analysis is expected and presentation of original clinical research at a national meeting is supported. The goal of the program is to train the fellow to attain a level of competency that enables them to recognize, diagnose and treat patients with craniofacial anomalies and special needs in a hospital-based team care setting.

PGY-4 stipend support and benefits are provided. The fellowship start date is variable. All applications must be submitted by November 17, 2023.

Applicants must have a United States dental license and be eligible for dental licensure in the state of Washington. In addition, the applicant must have completed residency training in orthodontics in the U.S. and supply documentation of passing scores on parts I and II of the NBDE.
