Orthodontist vs Dentist.

At Park Orthodontics we have a wonderful team of dental specialists. With over 20 years’ experience, we specialise in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of facial and dental irregularities to help align teeth, jaws and bites. We often get asked what the difference is between a dentist and an orthodontist. Did you know that orthodontists complete an additional three years of studying after their initial dental degree?

Orthodontists and dentists have many things in common – both work to help you improve and maintain your overall oral health – but they actually work in very different ways. Your dentist will work to improve your overall oral health, whereas an Orthodontists specialises in treating misaligned jaws, bites and straightening teeth.
