What are orthodontists?

Orthodontists are fully qualified dentists who have commonly completed a further period of training and examinations in order to specialise in orthodontics. A specialist orthodontist will have carried out at least 3 years of extra training after dental school becoming a qualified dentist. Only those dentists who have completed this training or equivalent can register with the GDC as a specialist orthodontist.
