The practice of JT Orthodontics in El Paso, Texas is pleased to announce that Dr. Jesse Teng has achieved board certification through The American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) on October 1, 2018. Both orthodontists at JT Orthodontics, Drs. Jesse Teng and Cristiana Araujo are board-certified. JT Orthodontics maintains two locations: 5551 N. Mesa, Ste. A in West El Paso and 3030 Trawood Drive in East El Paso.

The American Board of Orthodontics is the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and affiliated with the American Association of Orthodontists. The American Board of Orthodontics was established in 1929 as the third certifying board in the health professions and the first in dentistry.

Board certification is a voluntary process. It is intended to provide assurance to the public that an orthodontic specialist has successfully completed an accredited educational program, a written board examination and an intensive evaluation process to assess the knowledge, skills and clinical expertise required to provide the highest quality of patient care. Achieving board certification demonstrates the orthodontist’s pursuit of continued proficiency and excellence in orthodontics.

Dr. Teng received his dental degree from Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and his residency in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics was completed at the University of Rochester. Dr. Teng is a past-president of the Texas Association of Orthodontists, the current secretary/treasurer of the Southwestern Society of Orthodontists, a delegate member of the American Association of Orthodontists and a past board member of the El Paso district dental society.
