The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) granted certification to 3 new orthodontists and recertified 51 during the second quarter of 2023.

The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) certified three orthodontists during the second quarter of 2023, while another 51 orthodontists completed their 10-year certification renewal requirements.

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.

Attaining first-time certification requires successful completion of the Written Examination and then the Clinical Examination. Orthodontists gaining recertification must successfully complete the Recertification Examination and requirements.

The three newly certified orthodontists were Michille Mian, DMD, MMSC, of Parkfield Orthodontics in Aurora, Colorado; Craig Willis, DDS, of Willis Orthodontics in North Logan, Utah; and Munisha Nanda, DDS, MS, of Nanda Orthodontics in Edmond, Oklahoma.

“On behalf of the American Board of Orthodontics, I congratulate the orthodontists who have recently completed the Board certification or certification renewal process,” said Dr. Timothy Trulove, ABO 2023-2024 president. “They are to be commended for their professional commitment by becoming board certified, and it demonstrates their willingness to protect the public through the delivery of excellent orthodontic care.”

The ABO currently represents 61% of AAO membership.
