dc.description.abstractIn 2005, the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology accepted a donation of 5650 unique orthodontic patient records (treatment records, dental X-rays, dental casts, intra-oral and full facial photographs) from an orthodontist’s practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 1972 through 1999. This collection includes large samples of Hispanic and Native American populations, two groups not often encountered in orthodontic training in the United States or elsewhere. While investigators can use the collection on site at the Museum for approved research, a Web-based, de-identified version of the collection is being developed with input from orthodontics students and faculty from multiple institutions, so the collection can be freely accessed the world over. The database’s unique design allows users to search for cases with particular characteristics of interest (e.g., patient ancestry, extraction patterns, diagnoses, and cephalometric parameters) and then review the sequenced intra-oral and X-ray images to observe variations of outcomes from treatments applied to patients with racial and other factors not often encountered in training or practice before.en_US
