The ABO works very hard to create and administer a reliable, valid, fair examination. Collaboration with Orthodontic Educators and residency programs play a crucial part in this process.
In an effort to increase this interactive collaboration, The ABO has partnered with the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodontics (CDABO) to develop the Advocacy Program. While the ABO Directors attempt to visit each orthodontic residency program at least once every three years, more can and should be done to guide and encourage residents to pursue board certification. The Advocate and Educator's local presence is the cornerstone to a successful Advocacy Program.
We are honored and privileged to have such dedicated Advocates and Educators partnering with the ABO to encourage Board Certification.
