What’s a “Board Certified” Orthodontist?

There are very few board-certified orthodontists in the state of Idaho. Luckily, at Hillam Orthodontics, all of the orthodontists are board-certified. Board certification is obtainable after an orthodontist receives their license, then completes a written exam, clinical exam, peer review, and then renews this process every ten years. Because of their board certification and experience, at Hillam Orthodontics, the orthodontists offer the highest level of care possible.

By scheduling your free 60-minute consultation, we can take the needed x-rays and examinations to evaluate the need for braces. We've even had some patients that we've followed for years that have never needed braces; so it really is on a case-by-case basis. Schedule an appointment today to see if you or your child needs future orthodontic care!

What Foods Should I Avoid With Braces?

If you break brackets off, you could be in braces for longer than planned. To prevent breaking off brackets, you'll need to avoid foods that are hard and sticky. Don't worry, there's still plenty of food that you can eat. If you have any questions, please reach out!
