Since its establishment as an independent unit in 1965, the Department of Orthodontics has developed an international reputation. We are proud of our record of providing the best and latest treatment for our patients, offering the highest level of education to our postgraduate orthodontic students and employing the most up-to-date orthodontic techniques.
Activities of the department include graduate and postgraduate teaching, clinical treatments and research.
Teaching includes basic and clinical orthodontics for 4th, 5th and 6th year students in the Hebrew University-Hadassah Faculty of Dental Medicine, with both frontal lectures and clinical tutoring.
The orthodontic clinics offer treatment for the general public in areas such as early treatment, adult orthodontics, orthognathic surgery, clefts, impacted teeth, special needs, as well as lingual and Invisalign options.
We offer a 36-month international specialization program in English, which teaches state-of-the-art clinical discipline, with modern technology and based on the most recent research. The staff members are well known educators, clinicians and researchers.
The Department of Orthodontics is very active in clinical and basic science research. Through our strong international connections, we aim to build cooperation with the foremost academic orthodontic institutions worldwide.

The postgraduate program in Orthodontics of the Hebrew University-Hadassah Faculty of Dental Medicine is one of a few programs worldwide that enjoy the synergy of a university research and academic faculty with a clinical and world-renowned medical center. It has been established in 1977 and since then more than 60 orthodontists have participated in this unique experience. The postgraduate program has been upgraded to an International Postgraduate Orthodontic Program (IPOP) in 2012, which welcomes students from all countries. The program offers a scientifically stimulating and culturally rewarding experience of studying in a foreign country and interacting with peers from different cultural backgrounds in the unique setting of Jerusalem.
Our mission is to train and educate specialists who will provide the highest level of patient care in an environment that fosters ethical behavior and critical thinking. The three-year English-language IPOP provides students with tools for analyzing patient problems and formulating the best treatment course. We help our students acquire knowledge and develop skills in a broad range of orthodontics and allied disciplines. IPOP students are also enrolled in a two-year International MSc Program in Biomedical Sciences. Israeli students are required to do an additional 6 months of obligatory rotations in pediatrics and pediatric dentistry. Israeli students are required to pass the Israeli National Board Examinations, while our foreign students apply to take the board exams in their country of origin.
The program enables the successful postgraduate student to practice Orthodontics at the specialist level. Our graduates are expected to return home at the completion of their training to successfully run their own private or public clinics or become researchers at academic institutions.
