Dr. Casey Warren is a Certified Orthodontic Specialist. What is the difference between a dentist and an orthodontist? Some general dentists provide orthodontic treatment. However, they are unlikely to have the same level of experience as an orthodontist, who has had significantly more training and only performs orthodontics. An orthodontist is a qualified specialist who has first trained to become a dentist and then completed an additional 2-3 year residency focused specifically on orthodontics.
