Thinking about becoming an orthodontist?

If you are still considering your career options, look no further!  Curious about the difference in becoming a Dentist and becoming an Orthodontist?  Dentists and Orthodontists will have similar educational backgrounds. Both must get a bachelor’s degree and then complete a four-year doctoral program at a Dental School. At this point, to become an orthodontist, the dentist must then serve a two- or three-year residency in orthodontics at an American Dental Association approved, university-affiliated program. Ideally, an orthodontist will be certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association.

During National Children’s Dental Health Month, we want to remind you that the American Association of Orthodontists suggest that children should be seen by an Orthodontist by the age of seven.  Not every orthodontic problem can be corrected at age seven, but most problems can be identified.  Tell all your friends that we are happy to monitor any child’s jaw growth and tooth development every 6 months until we determine if orthodontic treatment would be beneficial or not.  Call us for a complimentary appointment today!
