A true Orthodontist, such as Dr. Chay, is a Dentist who has completed a Masters Degree in Orthodontics, and is specifically trained to deal with correction of tooth alignment, jaw, and bite problems using dental braces.
A real Orthodontist dedicates his/her practice only to the treatment of these conditions. Orthodontic training includes Growth and Development, Genetics, Biomechanics, and Anatomy, and clinical techniques in the design, application, and control of braces and dental appliances. A true Orthodontist is much more than an ordinary Dentist – they are Dental Braces Specialists.
