This program emphasizes advanced treatment of dentofacial deformities with a focus on orthognathic surgery. Jacobi Medical Center Department of Dentistry is affiliated with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY). Our Oral & Maxillofacial Residency is a six year program with rotations through Jacobi, North Central Bronx and Beth Israel Hospitals. Fellows participate in the management of patients with craniofacial defects, including syndromic patients and all stages of cleft lip and palate treatment. Fellows will participate in the Hospital's Congenital Craniofacial Care Center monthly conferences.

The Orthodontic Fellow will work directly with the Orthodontic faculty, Oral & Maxillofacial faculty, Pediatric Dentistry faculty, General dentistry faculty & residents from each of those divisions.The faculty profiles can be found on the Jacobi web site.

The Orthodontic attending faculty at Jacobi will be mentoring & guiding the Fellow on a regular basis. The Fellow will be trained in all aspects of pre and postsurgical orthodontics. We use 3-D computer based surgical planning in which the Fellow will be proficient. The Fellow will be actively involved in the clinical treatment of all the orthognathic patients.

The Fellow is expected to utilize our vast patient volume to conduct independent research and publish articles relating to the treatment rendered at Jacobi. The Fellow will present cases at orthognathic conferences along with the OMFS residents. The Fellow will join the OMFS staff in the operating room to "scrub" on orthognathic cases. All virtual and physical model surgery will be done by the OMFS residents with the Fellow. We have a joint conference with Plastic Surgery & ENT at Jacobi to present & discuss craniofacial deformity cases. The Fellow will participate in these conferences.

The didactic portion of the Fellowship will include literature review, lectures & textbook assignments. Lectures are given by Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry. There will be regular evaluations regarding the educational progress of the Fellow.

The Fellowship is salaried with health benefits and paid vacations included. The Fellow will receive a Certificate of Completion of the Orthodontic/Orthognathic Fellowship upon successfully finishing the program.
