ABO announced the names of 367 orthodontists who were certified or recertified through its voluntary credentialing program.

The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) certified or recertified 367 orthodontists during the second and third quarters of 2021, including the July 2021 Scenario-Based Clinical Examination.

ABO Board Certification is a voluntary credential that represents an orthodontist’s personal and public commitment to the standards of specialty practice and lifelong learning.

ABO certification requires successful completion of the written examination and then the clinical examination. Orthodontists gaining recertification must successfully complete the recertification examination and requirements.

“On behalf of The American Board of Orthodontics, I congratulate these orthodontists on successfully completing ABO certification or certification renewal,” said David Sabott, DDS, MS, ABO president. “Their accomplishment in becoming board-certified attests to their commitment to serve and protect the public by delivering excellent orthodontic care.”

The ABO currently represents 54% of AAO membership.
