What is an Orthodontist?

Orthodontic specialists possess a wealth of expertise in addressing a wide spectrum of dental and facial irregularities, encompassing concerns such as overcrowding, spacing, and abnormal bite patterns. These conditions can significantly impact an individual's oral health and overall well-being. By choosing an orthodontist to oversee your orthodontic treatment, you ensure that you receive the highest level of care and attention, backed by the most advanced and effective treatment options available. With their profound knowledge and skill, orthodontists can help you achieve a lasting, healthy, functional, and visually appealing smile that will endure throughout your lifetime.

What is ABO Certification?

To attain the esteemed ABO (American Board of Orthodontics) certification, orthodontists must undergo evaluation by a discerning examination panel, where they are subject to assessment of their extensive knowledge, skills, and professional judgment. This distinguished certification is obtained by only one in three orthodontists, highlighting the exceptional standards set forth.

The rigorous certification process entails comprehensive written and clinical examinations. First, orthodontists must complete an extensive written examination comprising 240 questions, which traverse a wide array of orthodontic domains. Subsequently, they present a series of meticulously curated case reports from their own practice before the discerning ABO panel. These reports are subjected to meticulous evaluation and provide the foundation for an oral examination, wherein the orthodontist's proficiency in both clinical and academic realms is scrupulously assessed. Board certification is earned only upon successful completion of these exacting criteria, with subsequent certification renewal mandated every 10 years to ensure a commitment to ongoing excellence.

Board certification serves as a definitive testament to the exceptional quality and experience of orthodontists, underscoring their capacity to remain at the vanguard of cutting-edge advancements in modern orthodontics.
