    You need to check laws pertaining to where the orthodontist is/was located, and they vary from state-to-state.

    Where I work, we keep records for 7 years from the date of the patient's last visit.

    they keep archives of their patients, most of the time. if you need medical records, call the doctor's office and ask about it.
