Meet Dr. Rohan S. Kirtane! Born and raised in India, in a family of doctors and dentists, pursuit of high-quality higher education has always been a life-long ambition for Dr. Kirtane. Following the footsteps of his uncle (pediatric dentist) and great-uncle (Endodontist), both of whom trained in North America, he earned his first dental degrees from SDM dental College, in Dharwad, Karnataka, India. He came to Boston University as a foreign student for his requalification in North America and graduated with a DMD degree In 2013. He pursued an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at Boston University earning a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) in 2014 and practiced for four years as a Managing Clinical Director (MCD) and full-time associate dentist at two practices in Boston.
Inheriting from his physician father the love of diagnosis and treatment planning; the challenges of craniofacial growth and development, biomechanics of tooth movement and the possibilities of digital technology stimulated him to specialize in the most rewarding of dental specialties- Orthodontics. He was chosen by the University of Manitoba into their grueling 3-year Master’s in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Residency Program. Under the tutelage of Dr. William Wiltshire, he earned his Masters in 2021, also earning the first prize for his research in Orthopedics, comparing two functional appliances for the correction of Class-II malocclusions in growing children. Dr. Kirtane published his research article in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics (AJO-DO) - the official publication of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) in May of 2023.
