Choosing a Great Orthodontist

by Doctorknows

What to consider when choosing an Orthodontist?

In general, your dentist is the one to recommend an orthodontics professional. However, given a substantial number of qualified professionals in this area, you have an option of choosing an orthodontist that meets your specific needs.

Credibility:

The main factors that reflect the credibility of an orthodontist are the license to practice dentistry and a degree in orthodontics obtained from a recognized institution. A recognized dental school graduate always has DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) or DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) after his or her name. Both degrees are considered equal.

Professional Affiliations:

Although membership in professional organizations does not necessarily indicate higher level of skills or experience, it is a good sign that your orthodontist is interested in improving his or her practice.

Experience:

Some orthodontic professionals may choose to specialize in specific issues, so it is always helpful to know whether the doctor possesses necessary skills to attend to your particular needs.

Technologies Available:

Modern technologies, such as clear braces, arch-wires that fit behind the teeth, and transparent aligners (invisalign), help to reduce discomfort associated with wearing orthodontic appliances.
