"CTOR bridges the gap between the laboratory science research and the clinical practice. The excitement of engaging in the world-class research and observing the exchange of ideas among eminent orthodontic investigators captivated me. I was very blessed to be a part of CTOR as a fellow, and have the opportunity to participate in the most challenging, yet exciting research projects under the great mentorship of Dr. Alikhani and Dr. Teixeira. In one short year, CTOR became my second home; it enhanced my critical thinking skills, and taught me how to become a passionate researcher and a better evidence-based clinician. CTOR was an exceptional life changing experience that I will always remember throughout my career."
