About Dr. Belinda Weltman
I attended the University of Toronto, obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree with honours in Nutrition. Then I went to England to attend The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where I completed a Masters of Science degree in Public Health Nutrition. I continued on to pursue a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at the University of Manitoba. I was very involved in dental research throughout my training and was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Dentistry for my contributions. I continued on to pursue a three-year specialty degree in Orthodontics, where I received extensive training in treating cleft palate cases in the craniofacial program, and graduated with a Masters in Orthodontics (MS) from The Ohio State University.
My thesis was recently published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, and I have written a chapter on the subject of root resorption for an upcoming evidence based Orthodontic textbook. I strongly believe that evidenced based approaches are essential in orthodontics, and I strive to provide the most up to date care to all my patients.
