In this video, you will learn about orthodontic treatment. The basics of orthodontic assisting are going to be explained. What is an orthodontist? An orthodontist is a dentist who decided to do more schooling to do braces, Invisalign, and anything that has to do with tooth movement. A board-certified ortho took an extra test and presented it to their board.
