Dr. Speaks, Your Board Certified Orthodontist in Denver

Few patients would choose an unlicensed orthodontist, but many are unaware of the importance of board certification. This is an extra step that goes beyond the basic education and competency requirements of the state’s licensing board. Orthodontists begin as dentists, but go on to seek a graduate study course approved by the American Dental Association to become specialists in orthodontics. Once the course is completed, the orthodontist can seek both licensing and certification from the American Board of Orthodontics. This is a voluntary step, but it helps the dental care provider prove their dedication to offering the very best care. Dr. Speaks is one of the few orthodontists in the Denver area that holds this type of certification.

Thorough Testing

A certified orthodontist can provide numerous benefits to their patients. The expert must undergo rigorous testing procedures to prove that they are worthy of the name of the ABO. Dr. Speaks passed a long written examination covering all of the tooth care issues he deals with on a daily basis. He also had to present his own case reports from practicing to show his record of providing top notch care and helping his patients. Oral examinations and interviews were also included, making it a long and difficult process to complete.

Elite Care Providers

Orthodontists can’t practice without a license. However, they don’t have to seek certification from the ABO unless they want to show they are one of the top providers in the country. Only a fraction of dentists successfully pass the test and achieve the honor of being a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. Dr. Speaks sought out this level of certification so that he could provide the highest level of care to his patients.

The ABO has been setting high standards for dental care since its establishment in 1929. Over its long history, the ABO has helped millions of patients connect with the most experienced and well trained orthodontists.
