Why Board Certification Matters

Certification Makes a Difference


For you… personal accomplishment and ongoing self-assessment

For your practice… a way to differentiate yourself from non-specialists

For our specialty… commitment to the highest standard of patient care


Certification signifies a unique achievement – a step beyond your orthodontic education and training in the specialty.  As your judgment, skills and knowledge are evaluated by your peers, it allows you to evaluate your own work and creates a commitment to lifelong learning. 


Board certification not only allows you to differentiate yourself and your practice, it helps as you become active in the specialty and sets an example for others.
