Our Service

The UNC / Wake County Health Dept (WCHD) Orthodontic ProgramWake 1 has been in operation since its inception in 1984 to provide orthodontic services for selected children that would benefit from such treatment who may not otherwise have access to care. The WCHD is focused on providing preventive and comprehensive dental services to children. The educational objective of the WCHD is to provide additional clinical experience to the UNC Orthodontic residents in interceptive and comprehensive treatment in a Public Health setting.
