Dr. Shalini’s Answer

You have to complete your UG in dentistry which will qualify you as a general dentist. Then , you will have to choose your speciality as orthodontics during your pg masters. It will take around (5 years of UG+ 3years of PG) 8 years to become a qualified orthodontist. Average private schools cost for about $67,087 Tuition & Fees.
It's worth all the time and money if you are passionate about it!
Good luck :)
