What ABO Certification?
The ABO, or the American Board of Orthodontics, is the oldest and most prestigious specialty board in the field of dentistry. Founded in 1929, the ABO serves to standardize and improve the quality of orthodontic treatment, outlining methods and standards of quality for both practices and practitioners. Importantly, the board provides certification to qualifying orthodontists based on a series of tests and evaluations. Certification takes between 5 and 10 years to achieve, and board-certified orthodontists have to get recertified every 10 years to keep the distinction.
Why Is Board Certification Important for Orthodontists?
Essentially, board-certification is a gold standard in orthodontics: it means that an orthodontist is exceptionally proficient and well-qualified to practice orthodontics. To achieve certification, an orthodontist must pass a thorough review of qualifications, as well as rigorous exams in both clinical and written settings. Board certification means that an orthodontist has reached a standard of excellence in their craft, and it demonstrates that the orthodontist is effective in creating healthy smiles.
Should My Orthodontist Be Board-Certified?
Choosing a board-certified orthodontist means you're getting the absolute best in quality. When you work with a certified orthodontist, you can rest assured that you are in great hands and that the orthodontist will use an effective, convenient treatment to help you achieve a gorgeous new smile. In a word, yes: you should always seek treatment from a board-certified orthodontist.
