Although they’re every kid’s worst nightmare, orthodontists bring home quite a hefty paycheck for doing specialized work.
When something goes really wrong with your teeth, orthodontists examine and treat you for dental anomalies. They also specialize in devising and implementing braces and other methods of realignment for teeth, which helps improve normal function and appearance.
This job generally requires four years of college, four years of dental school, and several years of post-graduate orthodontics training, as well as various licensing exams.
