What is a Board Certified Orthodontist?

Understanding the unique qualifications of a board-certified orthodontist gives you the insight you need to recognize the value of Dr. Sam Kadan when compared to orthodontists that do not pursue board certification. Dr. Kadan is proud to be one of the few orthodontists in the country that pursued and completed the requirements for board certification to better serve his patients in the Bucks County and Philadelphia area.

What is a Board-Certified Orthodontist?

The American Board of Orthodontics is responsible for granting board certification to qualified orthodontists who meet the stringent requirements set forth by the organization. In order to receive board certification, an orthodontist must:

  • Volunteer to receive hundreds of additional hours of training and practical experience
  • Demonstrate sound judgment, skills, and knowledge in the field of orthodontics
  • Commit to providing the highest quality care possible to each and every patient

Are All Orthodontists Board-Certified?

Unfortunately, not all orthodontists pursue board certification. Dr. Kadan represents one in three orthodontists who pursue and complete the requirements for board certification.

Why Should I Only Choose a Board-Certified Orthodontist?

Board-certified orthodontists demonstrate their commitment to patient care by voluntarily completing additional training. When you entrust your orthodontic treatment to a board-certified orthodontist, you feel confident about your procedures.

Is a Board-Certified Orthodontist More Expensive?

Board certification does not necessarily mean that an orthodontist is more expensive. Entrusting your care to an orthodontist that is not board certified may mean that you are not benefitting from the continuing education and training that is required for board certification. From this perspective, your overall treatment costs may be higher with an orthodontist that is not board certified.
