Code of Ethics & Professional Conduct

Board certification is based on the highest standards of knowledge and clinical skill, and all Board Certified Orthodontists are expected to maintain and enhance such standards.

It is incumbent upon every Board Certified Orthodontist as a dentist and as an orthodontist to abide by the Principles of Ethics and the Code of Professional Conduct of the American Dental Association, the American Association of Orthodontists, and the American Board of Orthodontics.

In particular, a Board Certified Orthodontist should abide by the principles of fairness and truthfulness in one’s public statements and announcements. For further information, please Login and refer to the ABO Brand Standards Guide saved in the Educational Toolkit.
