Many people don’t realize that not every orthodontist is board certified. In fact, only 58% currently are–which means there is little more than a 50/50 chance that your orthodontist is actually certified. At Hoskinson Orthodontics, we believe in providing the ultimate patient experience, which is why our own Dr. Hoskinson is proud to be board certified. But what does that mean exactly? We’re here to lay out all the info for you!

What Does It Mean To Be Board Certified?

According to the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) itself, “achieving board certification is one step in a long and intensive educational experience to making a lifelong commitment to elevating the quality of patient care.” To become board certified by the ABO, a doctor must complete both a written and a clinical examination. Additionally, certification is not permanent–each member must take a renewal exam every ten years. This ensures that they stay up-to-date on best practices and the latest technologies.

What Makes a Board Certified Orthodontist Different?

When an orthodontist is ABO board certified, they are that much more qualified to provide critical care with attention to detail. This will give you peace of mind that your doctor is committed to continuously bettering their practice, and typically means they have a positive bedside manner. Since they are re-evaluated every ten years, their skills remain fine-tuned and aligned with the latest technology. You are getting the best of the best!
