It’s important to know that all orthodontists are licensed dentists, but not all dentists are licensed orthodontists, even if they offer orthodontic treatment. Why is this important? Orthodontists are specialists who spend an extra 2-3 years in certified orthodontic programs after the original 4 years of dental school.
Many dentists have basic orthodontic training and can upgrade their skills by attending continuing education courses, but those are only weekend courses, not education that will make them a specialist.
