Anthony’s Answer

To be an Orthodontist, you must go to dental school. And this path in itself is very challenging and not everyone entering it will make it. Then after graduating from dental school, you will need to apply to graduate program in Orthodontal. If you make it in, you will spend 2 more years in this program. Licensing to be a dentist is another challenge: you must pass both the National Board exam and Regional/State exam to get your license to practice in a specific state. Then you will need to decide how you want to work as an Orthodontist: run your own clinic, work as an associate with another dentist etc.... And each of these options have pros and cons as well.

I am not a dentist, but have a few dentists in my circle of friends.

It's good that you look into this career and do diligent research before deciding what you want to do. A career in dentistry can be rewarding if that is what it fit your personality and abilities. But it is challenging to get there.

If you have more specific question, do not hesitate to ask.
Best regards
Anthony
