An Orthodontist is a dental specialist that has not only completed college and 4 years of dental school, but has also completed an additional 2 to 3 years residency program accredited by the ADA of advanced education in orthodontics. Only a dentist that has completed the additional years of training and education after dental school is an orthodontist.
After receiving the additional years of training and education, an orthodontist has learned the skills that are required to treat the misalignment of teeth and facial development with braces, headgear, retainers and other methods. Orthodontic appliances are used for treatment of buck teeth, crooked teeth, overbite, braces for children and teens, and braces for adults.
I am very pleased with smilecanada. It has helped me find a great dentist. The website is super user friendly. I have used website as a resource to educate my young children of smart dental habits. My children absolutely love the games section, and the older one can now go to the 3rd level. I am referring your site to all my family and friends!
