An orthodontic specialist is a dentist who has completed two to three years of continuous advanced studies in a graduate program approved by the American Dental Association. Only after completing the program and passing a specialty licensing board can they call themselves “Orthodontists.”
Because of these extra years of education, a local orthodontist has acquired the special skills critical for accurate diagnosis of orthodontic problems, management of tooth movement and guidance of facial development through a comprehensive treatment program. Orthodontic specialists, by law, must limit their practice to treating only orthodontic cases, therefore they are able to provide the most effective and efficient treatment.
