What Is The Difference Between A Dentist and A Specialist Orthodontist?
An orthodontist is a dentist who has gone on to do further, specialist training in orthodontics on an approved university course – resulting in the award of a Master’s Degree or Doctorate in Orthodontics as well as Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MOrth) or equivalent. An orthodontist has been examined by the Royal College of Surgeons and their specialist status is awarded and published by the General Dental Council.
Although some general dentists are offering orthodontic treatment they have not undergone this recognised and approved training and will generally only be comfortable with simple cases. A specialist orthodontist’s training allows them to be able to treat some of the most complex orthodontic cases, including facial deformity and orthognathic surgery.
