What Type of Training Does an Orthodontist Have?
Becoming an orthodontist requires a lot of schooling, and our Overland Park Orthodontist, Dr. Joe Moon did it all! After graduating high school, the training requirements are as follows:
- Bachelor’s degree (four years)
- Complete doctorate at dental school (four years)
- Specialty training at an orthodontic residency program (two to three years)
Do I Need to See an Orthodontist?
Dr. Moon is awesome! My entire treatment was 14 months when others were telling me that it would take 20 to 24 months. Each visit was very easy, enjoyable, and fun! I highly recommend seeing Dr. Moon for your braces!H.W.
Dr. Moon and his staff are very knowledgeable, professional, and caring. He really takes the time to explain things at every visit. You can tell that Dr. Moon truly cares about his patients.S.M.
I highly recommend Dr. Moon. I was told by several other people that I wasn't a candidate for Invisalign, but Dr. Moon took on my case and treated me with Invisalign. I absolutely love the result!P.B.
I love this office. Dr. Moon and his staff go out of their way to make sure that my son is being taken care of at each visit. You can really tell that they take pride in their work and care about the people they treat!H.M
