Did you know that Orthodontics is a subgroup of dentistry?

An orthodontist is also a dentist but…A dentist is not an orthodontist.
According to the American Dental Association, all orthodontists are dentists, but only about six percent of dentists are licensed orthodontists.   Although some family, cosmetic and general dentists may occasionally place braces or other types of orthodontic appliances, it is important to note that they are not orthodontists. Only an orthodontist is a formally trained and licensed dental specialist in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. Once one earns the additional university degree and achieves specialty status, an orthodontist his focuses attention exclusively on the specialty of orthodontics and no longer provides dental services such as cleanings, fillings, and crowns.
