The complete list of examinees who completed the Clinical Examination is available on the ABO website.
The certificate issued by the ABO signifies a certification of attainment. It does not confer any legal qualification, privilege, or license to practice orthodontics, the organization states. Additionally, the certificate is not a professional or academic degree. In essence, board certification is a process by which an individual orthodontist is voluntarily examined by his/her peers as to orthodontic knowledge and clinical skills, says the ABO.
