Dr. Slutsky is Board Certified - he is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. Board certification in this specialty requires extensive preparation. The practitioner must first pass a difficult examination and then appear before a board of nationally respected orthodontists to present various cases which he has treated. The biggest benefit of being a Diplomate is the tremendous self-evaluation which the orthodontist undergoes and the "real world" knowledge gained from successfully treating such a wide spectrum of cases.
Dr. Slutsky is a member of the College of Diplomates of the American Board of Orthodonitcs, American Association of Orthodontists, Pennsylvania Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Pennsylvania Dental Association, and Philadelphia County Dental Society.
