American Board of Orthodontics

Why choose a board certified orthodontist? Orthodontists understand the complicated treatment of growth and development and how it relates to facial form. Dr. O’Neill treats issues related to the jaw and the bite, not just the teeth.

Dr. Nancy O’Neill is a board certified orthodontist. She is committed to the highest level of patient care including a comprehensive treatment approach to making sure the quality of her work is at its best. To be a board certified orthodontist, he or she must renew their certification every 10 years to demonstrate their continued commitment to lifelong learning and excellence in orthodontia. The reason why an orthodontist spends additional years in training is to learn and perfect their ability in the specialty of orthodontics. A general dentist is ideal for providing regular oral health checkups, much like your family doctor. However, they do not share the same extensive education required of an orthodontist.
