The most dominant, dynamic, and influential figure in the specialty of orthodontics was Edward H. Angle (1855-1930). He is regarded as the “Father of Modern Orthodontics.” Through his leadership, orthodontics was separated from the other branches of dentistry (e.g., crown and bridge, prosthetics), and the result was the specialty of orthodontics. Angle was the first to limit his practice to orthodontics.
