About Board Certification

Are all orthodontists Board Certified?
No. All orthodontists must be licensed to practice, however board certification is a voluntary achievement. In order to become board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), an individual orthodontist is thoroughly tested by a highly respected panel of examiners to demonstrate their orthodontic knowledge, clinical skills and judgment. The ABO certification process signifies a unique achievement.

What is the American Board of Orthodontics?
The ABO is the only certifying board in the specialty that is recognized by the American Dental Association. The ABO was founded in 1929 and is the oldest specialty board in dentistry. The board’s purpose is to elevate the quality of orthodontic care for the public by promoting excellence through certification, education, and professional collaboration.

Why would an orthodontist choose to be board certified?
Successful completion of the examination process demonstrates the orthodontist’s personal commitment to excellence in orthodontics. It exemplifies a doctor’s commitment to continue to keep up to date on the latest advances in patient care. It is a demonstration of their dedication to the specialty and the highest level of personal achievement.
