WHAT IS AN ORTHODONTIST ?
Orthodontics is the art and science of studying, diagnosing and treating misaligned teeth and jaws.
An orthodontist is a dental specialist who works exclusively in the area of straightening teeth and also in the improvement of their bite relationships.
To be registered as a specialist orthodontist a dentist must have undertaken a Dental Board approved post-graduate training course in orthodontics at a University including appropriate clinical experience. A specialist orthodontist’s registration can readily be confirmed by searching their credentials on the Australian Health Practitioners Registrations website (AHPRA).
All of our operators are registered specialist orthodontists. Remember; All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists.
