I have started doing research in the orthodontics department in January 2007 on the impacted canines. My primary task at this point is helping to gather the patient pool for the research project. Then after we have the patient pool I will help to collect the data, and later in the spring of 2008 we will start the research project in its entirety on the impacted canines.
