Formally the title of an orthodontist is obtained through the Ministry of Health and Social Solidarity after the successful completion of an examination. Only the doctors who have that title from the Ministry of Health and Social Solidarity are allowed to call themselves "orthodontists".
Orthodontists, these are the specialized dentists that they are only performing orthodontic treatments exclusively.
Since orthodontics was only recently recognized as a specialty in Greece and taking in consideration that the number of specialized orthodontists is limited, people who seek orthodontic treatment should first check, through their local dental societies, whether the dentist they visited is an accredited orthodontist.
