Orthodontic Fact #10 The first ever certified orthodontist in the United States is Dr. Charles Tweed from the late 18th century
In 1925, future orthodontist Charles Tweed was refused admittance to the Angle School of Orthodontics in Pasadena., California. He was told that he needed to take orthodontics more seriously. He was accepted to the school on his second application. Some years later, Charles Tweed would advance orthodontics by improving on the Angle School’s techniques, and carve a place in history for himself and the orthodontic world.
