Our Wonderful Orthodontist, Dr. Mack!
Dr. Kervin Mack is our board-certified orthodontist with a fervor for helping patients find their best smile! Attending Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University for his Doctor of Pharmacy, he later earned his Doctorate of Dental Medicine at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Mack completed his orthodontic specialty training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, earning his Master of Science in Orthodontics. Dr. Mack then bought his current Burlington practice!
Dr. Mack’s Dedication to His Patients
He is committed to staying up-to-date on the latest advances in orthodontic technology to bring in techniques and equipment that can best serve his community. A life-long learner, Dr. Mack is particularly interested in laser therapy, aesthetics, and temporary anchorage device placement.
What he treasures most about being an orthodontist is the amazing relationships he is able to form with his patients. From all walks of life and professions, he loves the ability to interact with so many different kinds of people and be able to support their journey to a straight smile. As Dr. Mack puts it, “I am not in the business of taking care of teeth. I am in the business of taking care of people. I just happen to work on teeth.”
The Importance of Board Certification
Dr. Mack is recognized by the American Board of Orthodontics as an orthodontist who has gone above and beyond his minimum training to display his commitment to the field and his patients and provide the highest quality of care. This mark of excellence is an honor they grant only select orthodontists. While this is a voluntary achievement, many patients search for doctors with this distinction for added confidence they are working with a true expert!
How It Is Accomplished
In addition to completing the fundamentals of becoming a licensed orthodontist (dental school and orthodontic residency), Dr. Mack had to pass a meticulous clinical and written exam, which tested his knowledge in effective treatment planning, accurate diagnosis, and exceptional patient care.
The amount of preparation for these exams takes hundreds of hours and puts professional judgment to the test. Passing is an achievement proving true dedication to the profession of orthodontics. To ensure this care, it must be renewed every 10 years.
After receiving board certification, orthodontists must also attend meetings in the field and other means of ongoing professional education to stay up-to-date with the latest advances.
