Not all orthodontists are board certified. To become board certified, an orthodontist has to pass a rigorous set of written and clinical examinations, as well as a comprehensive review of their credentials. The initial process of becoming board certified can take anywhere from five to ten years.
A board certified orthodontist, also known as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, has been voluntarily examined by his/her peers according to knowledge and clinical skills.
Becoming board certified signifies the orthodontist’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.
