Dental students and residents (dentists in training) provide high-quality care at reduced rates. Since our students are learning under supervision, treatment times are sometimes longer than in private practice clinics. You may need several appointments to complete your treatment.

 

For more information, call (213) 740-2805.

Orthodontic treatment helps teeth line up correctly, using braces or other devices.

Residents (dentists in training) provide treatment under the direct supervision of faculty orthodontists.

 

 

Becoming a Patient

 

The first step in getting treatment at the Orthodontic Clinic is to schedule an initial consultation. During your appointment, our dentists will determine if braces are appropriate for you. For those who need braces, we offer metal, clear or color braces, as well as clear aligner treatment.

 

Because we are a teaching and research institution, patients are selected on the basis of teaching merit. Unfortunately, this means that not all patients will be accepted for treatment.

 

We are presently not accepting patients who:

 

  • Wish to transfer from other offices or programs
  • Already have braces on their teeth
  • Need dental implants (unless referred directly from the USC Prosthodontic Clinic)
  • Have had braces removed within the past five years
  • We currently can accept only a very limited number of adult patients (over age 18), with the exception of USC faculty, students and staff.

 


Paying for Your Orthodontic Care

 

There is an initial consultation fee, which will be applied toward the cost of orthodontic treatment.

 

We do not accept Denti-Cal. Payment plans are available.

 

All patients are required to present government-issued photo identification.
