What is a Board Certified Orthodontist?


Did you know that Dr. Cameron Jolley is Board Certified? What is a Board Certified Orthodontist you ask?

A Board Certified Orthodontist chooses to extend their education and training for hundreds of additional hours and examinations to prepare themselves to offer the highest patient care possible. The certification is through the American Board of Orthodontics, which is the only recognized specialty board by the American Association of Orthodontists and American Dental Association.

Basically, Dr. Jolley studied his profession for an additional 2-3 years past the requirement to be the most knowledgeable that he can be and to provide quality work for his patients. This achievement is not easy and only one out of three orthodontists are Board Certified. As the American Board of Orthodontics says, "it takes dedication to make it to the top".
To remain Board Certified, Dr. Jolley must renew his certification every ten years to show his commitment to excellence and to stay up to date in the field of orthodontics.
