What are the qualifications of a good orthodontist in the Philippines?

With all the orthodontists out there, how do you find the right one for you? Here in the Philippines, there are a few key things to consider:

Board Certification and Experience

Before anything else, make sure your orthodontist is a certified specialist. They should have completed dental school and a residency program specifically focused on orthodontics. This ensures they have the expertise to handle even complex cases. Experience is a bonus too! Ask how long they’ve been practicing orthodontics, and if they have experience treating cases similar to yours.

Communication and Comfort

A good orthodontist goes beyond a degree. You want someone you feel comfortable talking to. Ask questions about treatment options, what to expect, and anything else that might be on your mind. A great orthodontist will listen, answer your questions clearly, and make sure you feel confident about your treatment plan.

While board certification and experience are essential, here are some additional factors you may also want to consider:

Technology: Does the clinic utilize modern technology like digital imaging or 3D scanning for more precise treatment planning?

Treatment Options: Do they offer a variety of dental care options, such as invisible braces, teeth whitening, and even oral prophylaxis?

Payment Plans: Does the clinic offer flexible payment plans or even installment plans? Make sure to discuss this with your orthodontist before choosing the right place for you!
