aboMack Orthodontics is proud to be home to a doctor certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) - Dr. Steven Mack.

What Is An ABO Certified Orthodontist?

There are many steps doctors must go through in order to become licensed orthodontists. They complete a graduate program in dentistry, thus earning a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) or DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree. Also, they must fulfill a 2 - 3 year residency program at a CODA-accredited orthodontic program that trains them specifically in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

Additionally, in order to become certified with the ABO, orthodontists must undergo hundreds of additional hours of training and examination that sharpens their orthodontic judgment, skills, knowledge, and patient care tactics. An ABO orthodontist must demonstrate the ability to provide the highest quality functional and esthetic results. As such, this certification is attained by fewer than 30% of all orthodontists in the country.
