Dental School Recruiting Teens for Discounted Braces Program

Case Western Reserve Braces Patient

The Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine is recruiting 200 new patients between ages 10 and 26 for its annual “Braces for Teenagers” program. The program offers patients braces for $3,450--a savings from typical orthodontist fees of $6,000 and more. Patients are treated by licensed dentists, specializing in orthodontics through the school’s graduate residency program, under the supervision of licensed orthodontists. Parents interested in enrolling their children for the fall program must schedule a preliminary exam. The dental school accepts cash, checks, and Visa/MasterCard. Financing is also available through registered third-party companies.

To schedule an appointment, call 216.368.8665 or email ortho@case.edu.


Broadbent Institute Extends Department's Reach to Special Needs Children 

Case Western Reserve Broadbent Institute for Craniofacial Research

The care provided by the Department of Orthodontics is reaching new patients — and new heights — with the dedication of the Broadbent Institute for Craniofacial Research. The institute is dedicated to clinical research and craniofacial care. The three-tier clinic at the institute will greatly expand the capability of the Department of Orthodontics to provide care of the most complex malocclusions, and to special needs children. It will be used by the school’s new craniofacial fellow and the craniofacial team at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. The children who come to the institute will be treated for severe craniofacial deformations, major craniofacial syndromes, and bilateral and unilateral cleft of the palate, which is the most common craniofacial deformity. The institute also will serve special needs children, such as those who have Down's syndrome, autism, and spina bifida. The institute was named in honor of Drs. B. Holly Broadbent Sr. ’19 and Jr. ’52, thanks to a $100,000 gift from Jack Beattie, D.D.S., M.S., ’63.
