Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Bulletin Fall 2017 - 31

Resident Review

3-D morphometrics with a focus on 3-D cephalometrics and soft tissue analysis, and clinical
orthodontic research. His clinical orthodontic
research can be further broken down into categories of innovative TAD design, skeletal changes
postexpansion with MSE, and airway analysis
following MSE.
Due to his progressive research in orthodontics,
Dr. Moon attracts numerous speakers from
abroad, who visit and present to UCLA Orthodontics residents, faculty, and preceptors, expanding
our knowledge base and reputation as a university. In addition, Dr. Moon has participated in
numerous international collaborations, working
on different arrays of research and development.
In addition to international affiliations, his lab
prides itself on close partnerships with numerous UCLA entities including the department
of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, the Sleep
Disorders Center, the School of Engineering and
Applied Sciences, and the Stein Eye Center.
Ultimately, the Moon lab pushes the boundaries
of conventional orthodontics, putting advanced
patient care first and utilizing the most advanced
technologies to pioneer novel ideas year after year.
UCLA Orthodontics is at the forefront of academic, clinical, and translational research, even as
it continues to pride itself on advanced clinical
care. In the words of Dr. Kang Ting, for UCLA
Orthodontics, "the sky is no longer the limit." 
