What is the difference between an Orthodontist and a General Dentist?

There is a clear distinction between a General Dentist and an Orthodontist when considering orthodontic treatment for you or your child based primarily, on level of post graduate orthodontic education beyond dental school, expertise, experience and commitment to excellence in ones chosen field.

A General Dentist is a graduate of a four-year dental school and practices general dentistry, whereas an Orthodontist is a dentist that limits his/her practice to orthodontics alone by virtue of two to three years of additional full time graduate training in orthodontics, specializing in orthodontic treatment for adults and children and a qualified member of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). Dr Rider is Board Certified by the AAO and a long time member of the prestigious College of the American Board of Orthodontists. His education, experience and expertise is unmatched in the Charlotte area. When the best is available why not choose the best.
