Who is a qualified Orthodontist?

A Qualified Orthodontist is a post graduate specialist who after completing the basic five year degree in dentistry undergoes an additional THREE YEAR training program, to gain the expertise & knowledge to treat people with braces, at the National Dental Council approved University & Dental College.

Specially trained dentists, with a post-graduate masters degree in Orthodontics are THE MOST QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS, to carry out orthodontic treatment.

It is similar to Gynaecologists, who study for an extra three years to master delivering bundles of joys in all complicated situations, or, Pediatric Surgeons, who undergo an extra few years of training to specialise in the fine surgical skills needed to operate on the delicate structures of new born children, infants & small children.
