"Many general dentists, who have not been trained in an accredited orthodontic program, will take a continuing education course on tooth movement varying from a weekend to several weekends and begin to offer these services to their patients. Although licensed to provide such services, I think the patient misses out on the benefit of years of training and practical experience. It is a 'buyer beware' situation," suggests Dr. Packard.
