By staff writers

August 19, 2020 -- The Georgia School of Orthodontics (GSO) has received approval to double its enrollment to enable the school to train more resident dentists in the specialty of orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics at its two Atlanta campuses. With the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) approval, class size has increased from 18 orthodontic residents per class to 36 per class. CODA also reaffirmed the school's approval without reporting requirements for another seven years.

"We feel very strongly that the public needs better access to more affordable orthodontic care. We will now be able to educate and train more orthodontic specialists who can provide exceptional, in-person care to large patient populations," said Randy Kluender, DDS, GSO's president and board chairman.

The Georgia School of Orthodontics also recently celebrated the graduation of its second class of residents, as well as its fourth anniversary since its inception in 2016.
