Diplomat of The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO)

Fellow of The American College of Dentists  (FACD)



Described as an educational entertainer, Gerry Samson completed pediatric dental residency at Emory University, 1979 under the direction of Dr. Ed Hibbard and orthodontics at Northwestern University, 1981 under the direction of Dr. Hal Perry. Since that time Gerry has been in private orthodontic practice, is a Diplomat of The American Board of Orthodontics and a Fellow of The American College of Dentists. In addition to orthodontic private practice, Dr. Samson holds formal faculty appointments at 6 USA postgraduate programs, is consultant to private pediatric dental and orthodontic practices, lectures extensively both in the United States and internationally.  In addition, he reviews orthodontic mechanics articles submitted for publication to The American Journal of Orthodontics and The Angle Orthodontist.  He was the invited guest Co-Editor of the Journal Seminars In Orthodontics: “Age Appropriate Orthodontics”, March and June, 2014 and author of the orthodontics mechanics chapter in the reference text book by Wiley Publications, “Recognizing and Correcting Developing Malocclusions: A Problem-Oriented Approaches to Orthodontics” – Prof. Eustáquio A. Araújo, Prof. Peter H. Buschang, 2016. Dr. Samson’s presentations emphasize clinical decisions based on science.



Gerry offers meaty clinical presentations spiced with a blend of biting wit, edgy humor, and substantially sauced with evidenced based literature. Always armed with unusually high quality hand out materials for seminar attendees, Gerry’s zany, brainy and engaging methods have made him one of today’s most popular educators.  Participants are certain to enjoy a unique educational, clinical experience that is both informative and motivating.
