What Is a Board Certified Orthodontist?
Orthodontists diagnose and treat problems arising from the teeth and jaw. They are trained to identify future issues affecting a patient’s dental well-being. So, it suffices to say that being an orthodontist means much more than just straightening crooked teeth.
Certifications are an integral part of any career. And it is no different for an orthodontist. You may have heard of terms like “licensed orthodontist”, “board certified orthodontist”, “board eligible orthodontist,” and so on when looking up a reliable option in your vicinity.
It must have had you wondering what they are and if they matter. Let us find out.
Dr. Bill Redmond is a native of Southern California, the son of an orthodontist and the husband of a general dentist. That makes family gatherings pretty interesting…if you like teeth!
