As members of the UWOAA, we fund the research of orthodontic residents each year. We are also involved in assisting full time and part time faculty members to develop and pursue independent research projects.
In 2012 the UWOAA raised $2 Million to fund a much needed renovation of the UW Ortho clinic. We strive to continue maintaining state of the art facilities for current and future residents of our department.
The UWOAA organizes a yearly thesis day event where residents can showcase their efforts in the past three years. Each year we invite world renowned speakers to deliver the key note address for this event.
