An orthodontist is a dentist who has become a registered specialist in orthodontics (in much the same way that a cardiologist is a doctor who has become a specialist in heart problems).
As an Orthodontist in Singapore, one must
- Complete a four-year, full-time Bachelors degree in Dentistry.
- Complete a three-year, full-time Masters degree in Orthodontics.

An orthodontist is the most qualified person to diagnose, prevent and treat any problems you might have with the alignment of your teeth and jaws.
Why straighten teeth?
People have orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance, health and function of their teeth. Orthodontic treatment makes the best of your teeth and improves the harmony between mouth, gums and jaws. Once your bite is corrected, eating comfort increases and so will the ease of caring for your teeth and gums! An attractive brilliant smile!
