ABO Announces Newly Certified/Recertified Orthodontists

The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) certified or recertified 123 orthodontists during the second quarter of 2022 via the mail-in or online BCE option to complete their banking process. 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 ABO certification requires successful completion of the Written Examination and then the Clinical Examination. Orthodontists gaining recertification must successfully complete the Recertification Examination and requirements.

“Although the ABO Clinical Exam has changed significantly in the past few years, the mission of the ABO remains the same—to elevate the specialty by certification, education and professional collaboration, said Dr. Patrick F. Foley, ABO 2022-2023 president. “On behalf of the Board, I congratulate all those who have completed the certification or certification renewal processes. We are gratified by the increased interest in pursuing certification and the message that it sends to the public regarding the delivery of excellent orthodontic care by the orthodontic specialist.”

The ABO currently represents 58% of AAO membership.
