The Center for Translational Orthodontic Research is a nucleus for integration of basic science, clinical science, and industrial resources in the field of Orthodontics, and a driving force in the dissemination of findings to the community and the advancement of the specialty.
"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
Our advisory board is a select group of clinicians and scientists who provide advice and support to the CTOR director. The board also participates in the organization of the CTOR Symposium and selection of fellows.
