An orthodontist is a dentist who has completed an American Dental Association accredited graduate program in the specialty of orthodontics. A dentist who graduates from a specialty program becomes an orthodontic specialist who is eligible to become board certified through the voluntary examination process of The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). Involvement in the certification process is a demonstration of the orthodontist's pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence. Dr. Longo has gone a step beyond in this comprehensive written and clinical examination which included providing for review his own actual patient cases, diagnoses, treatment planning, and results which were reviewed by Board examiners.
