Your Board-Certified Orthodontist in Tomball

Dr. Wint W. Tun,

Owner & Orthodontist

Dr. Wint Tun was born and raised in Myanmar, in Southeast Asia. She is the first in her family to become an orthodontist, and she rose to even greater heights by becoming a board-certified orthodontist. Dr.Tun earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery, with honors, from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She then earned her orthodontic specialty certification after completing the highly competitive three-year residency program at UCSF.

Only five orthodontic residents per year are chosen for UCSF’s Division of Orthodontics residency program, and Dr. Tun exceeded this achievement by becoming Chief Resident. She received extensive hands-on training in all aspects of orthodontics, treating cases ranging from craniofacial issues to orthognathic surgery. In addition, as Chief Resident she advanced her leadership skills, which serve her well as the orthodontist and owner of Harmony Orthodontics.

Orthodontics Board Certification

Orthodontists must complete undergraduate education, a doctorate in dental medicine, and then an orthodontic residency. After a multi-year residency is finished, the doctor becomes an orthodontist and then must obtain a state license to practice. All practicing orthodontists in the United States have achieved this level of education and credentialing. Others go on to earn board certification.

Orthodontist board certification is only offered by the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO), an organization recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Only one-third of licensed orthodontists pursue board certification because it’s time-consuming and challenging. Dr. Tun believes her patients deserve this level of excellence.

Applicants must successfully complete a series of written, oral, and hands-on clinical exams. In addition, the applicant must submit case studies of actual patients for professional peer review and approval. Usually, achieving board certification takes between five and 10 years, and certification must be renewed every 10 years to maintain active status.

As a board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Tun has demonstrated her commitment to education and clinical excellence. You can trust her with your smile, and the smiles you treasure most of all: those of your loved ones.
