Not All Orthodontists are Board Certified
Dr. Brandon Scheer is a board-certified orthodontist in Thornton, CO. This means, in addition to extensive specialty training, he also took the voluntary step of becoming certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.
The rigorous process takes years and hundreds of extra hours of preparation after residency, demonstrating his commitment to excellence. Only about half of all orthodontists in the United States have successfully passed the examinations and achieved board certification.
The Board-Certification Process
Dr. Scheer attended two years of specialty training in an orthodontic residency program after dental school. Then, he began the board-certification process, which included passing rigorous written and oral examinations.
Finally, to demonstrate his clinical skills, he presented cases to orthodontic experts, defending them from diagnosis to conclusion. Dr. Scheer must also complete regular continuing education and renew his certification every 10 years to ensure he remains on the leading-edge and his skills stay sharp.
Your Smile Will be in Expert Hands
