How do I know my doctor is an orthodontist?


One question I get asked frequently is “How do I know if my doctor is an orthodontist?” It’s a good question, and a critical one to ask as you seek additional treatment for your child’s dental issues.

Here’s the answer: Only orthodontists can belong to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). If you’re looking for a local orthodontist, go on-line and visit www.braces.org to find a specialist in your area. This FREE website features not only a searchable database of orthodontists but educational tips, answers and resources to help you on your question for your child’s healthiest smile!

Or you can simply ask your doctor if he or she has completed a 2-3 year residency in orthodontics and check with your state dental board to follow-up on his reply. Dentists and orthodontists in most states will be registered differently with the dental board.

Do your homework; be a “dental detective” while on the hunt for such vital information. Look for the words “dental specialist in orthodontics” or ask your general dentist for a referral to a specialist. In urban and suburban areas, it will take minimal effort to find a specialist.

In more remote rural locations, your search might take you to another city or town. Don’t be afraid to ask your dentist if an orthodontist travels to your town every month to see patients.

There’s a chance an orthodontist from a larger city comes to your town and works out of another dental office once or twice per month. Looking around can save valuable driving time and money.
