Work Environment

The patient's area in an orthodontist's office, like a dentist's office, is a sterile environment containing such things as orthodontic chairs, supply cabinets, and assorted orthodontic instruments. Orthodontists also usually have a separate office where they do their paperwork and take care of other office matters. Orthodontists often work regular business hours four or five days a week. To accommodate working patients or parents, they may have night or weekend hours too. On their days off they may still go to the office to take care of the miscellaneous things involved in running a small business.
