In much the same way as doctors choose to specialize in areas such as cardiology and neurology, dentists can also choose to specialize.
Orthodontists are fully qualified dentists who embark on a further two and half to three years of post-doctoral study and gain extensive clinical experience in an orthodontic residency program. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) is the regulating body for this branch of dentistry. Selecting an orthodontist who is a member of this organization adds the assurance that treatment is being administered by an individual with specialty education in oral biology and biomechanics.
BRIO Orthodontics is a practice limited to orthodontics that treats patients of all ages.
