Why Board Certification Matters

Dr. Zwickel is board-certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. Visiting an orthodontist is a crucial step towards achieving a healthy, beautiful smile, and choosing an orthodontist certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) adds an extra layer of assurance and expertise to your orthodontic journey.

ABO board certification is a testament to an orthodontist's commitment to excellence and adherence to the highest standards of patient care. These professionals undergo rigorous education and training, demonstrating their proficiency in the field and dedication to staying abreast of the latest advancements in orthodontic science and technology. By choosing a Board-certified orthodontist, patients can trust that they are in the hands of a practitioner with the knowledge and skills to provide top-notch care.

Orthodontic treatment goes beyond cosmetic enhancement; it plays a pivotal role in overall oral health. A certified orthodontist possesses a deep understanding of craniofacial anatomy, ensuring that treatment not only aligns teeth aesthetically but also promotes proper jaw function and bite alignment. Their expertise allows them to tailor treatment plans to address individual patient needs, considering factors such as facial structure, bite pattern, and oral health.

ABO Board-certified orthodontists adhere to a strict code of ethics, prioritizing patient welfare and maintaining the highest level of professionalism. Their commitment to ongoing education means that patients benefit from the most advanced and evidence-based treatment options available.

Moreover, Board certification provides patients with confidence and peace of mind throughout their orthodontic journey. It signifies a practitioner's dedication to achieving optimal results and fostering a positive patient experience. By choosing an ABO Board-certified orthodontist, individuals invest in not just a straighter smile but also in the assurance that their orthodontic care is backed by the highest standards of expertise and ethical practice. Ultimately, the decision to visit an ABO Board-certified orthodontist is a proactive step towards a healthier, more radiant smile.
