Message from the Director

"Compared to other medical specialties, the orthodontic specialty suffers from a slow application of research findings into clinical therapies. We created CTOR with the objective of bridging the large gap between the science and the clinical practice. We want to elevate Orthodontics from an art to a science, and move our specialty into an evidence based practice built on solid biological principles." — Mani Alikhani, DDS, MS, PhD
