Buyer beware: Dentists can be trained in orthodontics, but they're not orthodontists

, An orthodontist in Fredericton offered to replace her braces for free.

Stephen is not the only one to encounter this problem. Goomansingh spoke with Dr. Ron Wolk – a specialist in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics.

He had a patient come in to his Calgary practice just this week for a consultation, after getting braces from a dentist and having concerns about the progress of his treatment.

Wolk offered a few words of warning for consumers.

First, patients should be asking if they’re getting work done by a certified specialist and what affiliations they have, such as with the Canadian Association of Orthodontists or American Association of Orthodontists.

“Those two specialty groups are recognized… as only having members that are certified specialists. They’re formally trained, with university backgrounds – usually for an extra two to three years over and beyond that of a dentist,” he explained.

The problem is, there are some associations with similar sounding names. That’s where patients can get into trouble – very costly trouble.
