Board Certified

All orthodontists must be licensed to practice, but at this time only 1 in 3 orthodontists have continued on to complete Board Certification.

The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) certification process signifies a unique achievement—a significant step beyond the two to three years of advanced education required for a dentist to become a specialist in orthodontics. The process requires the orthodontist to demonstrate actual accomplishments in patient care with detailed case reports on the treatment provided for a broad range of patient problems. Board certification is a voluntary achievement that all orthodontists do not choose to pursue. In order to become board certified by the ABO, an individual orthodontist is thoroughly interviewed by a highly respected panel of examiners to demonstrate their orthodontic knowledge, clinical skills and judgment.

Since the establishment of the ABO in 1929, the certification process requirements have continued to adjust to the demands of the specialty. Successful completion of this examination process demonstrates Dr. Lenz’s commitment to excellence in orthodontics. It exemplifies his commitment to continue to keep abreast of the latest advances in patient care and to continue to deliver these latest advances to his patients.
