Eubanks 1 Meghan Eubanks Mrs. Cooper Brit/Lit 20 August 2019 Becoming an Orthodontist An orthodontist is, “a dentist who is qualified to treat irregularities in the teeth and jaws” (orthodontist). Orthodontists do many tasks in order to help people have a beautiful smile. “Over four-million people in the United States wear braces. Braces can help straighten an individual’s teeth, as well as fix a misaligned jaw. An orthodontist will help a person who needs these dental corrections” (How To become an Orthodontist). While becoming an orthodontist may have some downsides like eight years of tough schooling the reward of helping people on a day to day basis makes it all worth it in the end. Becoming an orthodontist there are many positive things to look forward to. While doing what they love, orthodontists also get paid very well with an “average salary of $196,000 as of May 2014” (Orthodontist Careers). Typically, an orthodontist works out of a private practice.
