Did you know?
- The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.
- Today it takes 10 or more years to become an orthodontist. An orthodontist completes college requirements, followed by 3-5 years of dental school. Then comes a minimum 2 years of post-doctorate study at a university-based orthodontic program accredited by the American Dental Association. There are only 67 accredited orthodontic programs in the U.S. and Canada.
- Having braces means you have to take extra special care of your teeth. Food can get trapped around your braces, and if not cleaned properly can lead to cavities.

Ortho Myths & Facts
- MYTH: Orthodontists are appropriate only for the most challenging and complex orthodontic cases.
FACT: Orthodontists recognize the difference between a simple case and a complex one. And when a case is challenging, orthodontists know what to do.
- MYTH: My family dentist says he can straighten my teeth.
FACT: An orthodontist has 2-3 years of specialized training beyond dental school and is a specialist at straightening teeth and insuring proper form and function. A dentist may see a handful of cases a year amid drilling and filling. An orthodontist only practices orthodontics and treats hundreds of patients.
- MYTH: Orthodontists charge more than general dentists for orthodontic treatment.
FACT: It's not the same work. The value in seeing an orthodontist for treatment is that the orthodontist is an expert, highly experienced and understands form, function and a wonderful smile.
