orthodontist


Explanation:
As you need the "Zahnarzt für ..." it's better just to say orthodontist. However, Kieferorthopädie would, of course, be orthodontics.
For Kieferchirurgie I also found "dental orthopedics" and "orthodontology" = (Lehre der) Kieferorthopädie, but in your case "orthodontist" would be the best.
