Why an Orthodontist?
All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. This is a very important distinction in determining who should be your orthodontic provider. An orthodontist is a dentist who has specialized training after dental school, completing an additional 2-3 years of study in just orthodontics at an accredited residency program. The American Dental Association oversees the accreditation of orthodontist residency programs, and only those completing this specialty training can be called an orthodontist.
Orthodontics is a specialized and complex area of dentistry that is best treated by an orthodontist who has the experience and training to handle cases of any complexity.
