American Board of Orthodontics Doctor Certification

The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), founded in 1929, is the oldest and most prestigious specialty board in dentistry. The ABO’s aim is to “elevate the standards of the practice of orthodontia, to familiarize the public with its aim and ideals, and to protect the public against irresponsible and unqualified practitioners.”

The Board upholds four main objectives supported by its mission:

To evaluate the knowledge and clinical skills of graduates of accredited orthodontic programs by conducting exams and conferring time-limited certificates
To re-evaluate clinical knowledge and skills through administration of recertification exams throughout a
Diplomate’s career
To support the development of quality graduate, postgraduate and continuing education programs in
To promote and encourage certification expertise throughout the world

Becoming Board Certified

In order to become board certified, an orthodontist has to have passed a rigorous set of written and clinical examinations, as well as a comprehensive review of their credentials. The initial process of becoming board certified can take anywhere from five to ten years. Once certified, the orthodontist must become recertified every ten years in order to maintain board-certified status.

What does it mean to be board certified?

A board-certified orthodontist, also known as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, has been voluntarily examined by his/her peers according to knowledge and clinical skills. Becoming board certified signifies the orthodontist’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.

What our patients say

Dr. San Martín is a really great orthodontist. During my treatment in braces, he was always extremely patient and gentle. He always took the time to answer any questions I had. He is one of those doctors who is extremely knowledgeable in addition to the fact that he genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients; something that is harder and harder to come by these days! I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a positive experience with braces, for themselves or their kids!

Great experience and fabulous results. The staff is so kind and helpful. And Doc is patient and informative when answering all my questions. All 3 of my children have been through braces at San Martin Orthodontic and now it’s my turn and I never felt like they were trying to over sell the need or process. The cost and payment plans make it so easy to get a great smile. Thank you!!

We absolutely love Dr. San Martin and his amazing office staff. Dr. San Martin does an excellent job!! They were so accommodating around our busy schedules to get an appointment. We are so happy with our daughter’s beautiful smile!! Dr. San Martin is conveniently located close to so many elementary and middle schools and the new high school behind Peiper Middle school. He is the best!!

Dr. San Martin is so patient and knowledgeable!! We have had an excellent experience thus far. Our daughter got her habit breaker and braces installed back in October and we are very pleased with the progress of her pearly whites. Her front teeth had been pushed pretty far out of place with the thumb sucking and now they are looking straight and in line. The price of her ortho work is very reasonable. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Appointments are painless and we rarely have to wait.

We used Dr. San Martin for my son’s braces, and could not be happier. Dr. San Martin and his staff are always friendly, personable, and always on time, and were ready for Jadyn at every appointment. He just got his braces off a few months ago, and trust me, he’s happy to have them off, but it was a great experience working with San Martin Orthodontics, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an Orthodontist.
