Upon completion of dental school, some graduates will practice as dentists while others choose to pursue a specialty. This requires additional schooling during a three-year residency program.

Dr. White holds a specialty licence from the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario and is a graduate of the Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Programme at the University of Toronto.

“Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics” is one of nine specialties. It entails the management of tooth movement, while dentofacial orthopedics involves the guidance of facial growth and development, which occurs largely during childhood. Appliances are frequently used — the more familiar braces for orthodontics, and other specialized appliances, depending on what facial abnormalities are present. Sometimes orthopedic treatment may precede conventional braces, but often the two are used at the same time.

Dr. White’s diagnosis will include problems with alignment of the teeth and jaws as well any concerns with related facial structures. He may devise a treatment plan that integrates both orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatment.
