    What is Board certified

    What Does It Mean to Be Board Certified?

    We’re glad you asked! After first completing dental school and then two to three years of advanced education in orthodontics, an orthodontist must voluntarily undergo hundreds of additional hours of training to become board certified. The process also involves extensive evaluation of the orthodontist’s knowledge, skill and expertise. Only one in three orthodontists complete their board certification, so it truly signifies the highest level of orthodontic achievement and a commitment to lifelong learning.
