Why Choose a Board Certified Orthodontist?

Setting a Higher Standard for Orthodontic Care

Board certified orthodontists have committed themselves to you and your orthodontic treatment to provide the highest level of care. In addition to dental school and an accredited orthodontic program, they have successfully completed a voluntary, rigorous examination process 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.

More Than Just Straightening Teeth...

A board certified orthodontist is committed to the highest level of patient care including a comprehensive treatment approach to ensure quality work. Board certified orthodontists must also renew their certification every 10 years to demonstrate their continuous commitment to lifelong learning and excellence.
