Orthodontist is a dentist who is an expert in diagnosis and treatment of tooth and facial irregularities. In order to be an orthodontist, one must finish faculty of dentistry and complete a period of residency or a PhD which may take even longer. During this education, orthodontist learns the information for controlling the movement of a tooth (which is orthodontics in general) and for leading facial development (this approach may be named as jaw and face orthopedics). Only dentists who completed this residency or PhD education successfully can have the title of orthodontist.
