Certification Renewal Examination Process

Board certified orthodontists completing certification renewal will receive a certificate, ABO Educational Toolkit and sample materials. If certification renewal is scheduled prior to the certification expiration date, any time remaining will be added to the expiration date of the new certificate. 


The Certification Renewal Exam is required to be taken every ten years and may be retaken as often as needed as long as the current certificate is unexpired. A fee will be charged for each re-examination.


A Lifetime Board Certified Orthodontist may re-examine for the Voluntary Certification Renewal as many times as desired. There will be a nominal fee for each examination.
