What is usually like in the situation of a dentist becoming an orthodontist is the situation whereby a doctor decides to go back to school and further his studies so that he can become a surgeon like a brain surgeon or any other kind of specialisation meaning that from that time on he will be a specific kind of doctor and not a doctor that you can see for anything. What a dentist will do once he gets a patient who has an overbite is that the dentist will refer this kind of a patient to an orthodontist which means that a regular dentist is one who does not have some knowledge in some kinds of areas.
Normally, orthodontists help in the alignment of your teeth and they are normally the ones that deal with fixing braces on people who have teeth that are not aligned.
