What is a Board Certified Orthodontist?

Why is a Board Certified Orthodontist the #1 choice for my orthodontic treatment?

We often hear the question, ” Who is the best person to help me with my kid’s braces or my Invisalign treatment?  Another FAQ is “How do I know if my doctor is trained to handle my braces or Invisalign treatment?

When it comes to choosing a doctor to treat your orthodontic needs it is extremely important that your doctor has the education and experience to properly diagnose and design a treatment that will end with you having a beautiful smile.  There is no better orthodontist to diagnose and treat your orthodontic needs than a board certified orthodontic specialist.

This means that the orthodontist is not only a specialist but has also gone through hundreds of additional hours of education to demonstrate their judgment, skills, and knowledge required for providing the highest level of patient care.  They have achieved board certification through the American Board of Orthodontics, the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and in affiliation with the American Association of Orthodontists.
