I'm very happy with the experience I had a JU School of Orthodontics. This was my second residency having completed a residency in Pediatric dentistry earlier, given these circumstances I have a unique perspective. It's a special and privileged experience to find a group of faculty and staff that truly work their hardest to provide a young orthodontic resident with a great learning environment and treat them with respect. The program is exceptional at teaching real world clinical skills and having multiple faculty members with many years of private practice experience is invaluable. My family and I loved our time at JU...it's hard to beat learning orthodontics 20 minutes from the beach!

At Jacksonville University School of Orthodontics, I received an education that was second to none. The support from the faculty and clinical staff was exceptional. The academic and clinical skills I learned at JU have enabled me to take great pride and joy in my daily work and opened many doors for me. I have developed a successful career path that owes much to my training. I am currently working at Al-Batterjee Medical College in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as the Head of Preventative Department, Head of the Orthodontics Division, and Assistant Professor, teaching orthodontics to undergraduate dental students. I have also been practicing at the La Perle Dental Spa in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for over a year. I feel that, on the whole, my education at JU prepared me well for my transition to a successful career and I know that many of in my class feel the same.

Only 2 weeks out of it, and I'm realizing that life is so good, I would have done ANYTHING residency asked me in order to get to this goal. Life of an orthodontist is unreal!

Jacksonville University's School of Orthodontics has provided me with a top notch clinical experience, allowing for an easy and seamless transition into a busy private practice. The ability to treat the high number of cases that JU students are afforded, along with the highly varied treatment philosophies utilized by the large faculty bless a JU Orthodontic resident with a unique experience. JUSO's diagnostic treatment planning seminars and treatment progress seminars are some of the most effective and valuable teaching tools I have experienced to date. Students leave JU more than prepared to tackle an academic career, all forms of private practice, and board certification seems to come easy to JUSO graduates. I wouldn't trade my experience at JUSO for anything, it has prepared me extremely well for my career in clinical orthodontics.
