Board Certified Orthodontists Can Make a Difference

Not all orthodontists are board-certified. To become board certified, an orthodontist must first pass a rigorous set of written and clinical examinations, as well as a comprehensive board review of his or her credentials. The process of becoming board certified can take from five to ten years. Once certified, the orthodontist must become recertified every ten years.

What does it mean to be board certified?

A board-certified orthodontist is also called a “diplomate” of the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). Becoming board certified signifies the orthodontist’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.

American Board of Orthodontics Certification

The American Board of Orthodontics was founded in 1929. It is the oldest and most prestigious specialty board in dentistry. The ABO’s aim is to elevate the standards of the practice of orthodontia, to familiarize the public with its aim and ideals, and to protect the public against irresponsible and unqualified practitioners. The board upholds four main objectives supported by its mission:

  • To evaluate the knowledge and clinical skills of graduates of accredited orthodontic programs by conducting exams and conferring time-limited certificates
  • To re-evaluate clinical knowledge and skills through administration of recertification exams throughout a diplomate’s career
  • To support the development of quality graduate, postgraduate, and continuing education programs in orthodontics
  • To promote and encourage certification expertise throughout the world

Essentially, choosing a board-certified orthodontist gives you greater peace of mind and often, more and better treatment options.
