Well hopefully you will be done in 2 years!

If you're not you certainly will be able to find another orthodontist to finish your treatment but just expect to pay more than the original quoted fee

It is not a problem to transfer to another orthodontist when you are moving. Just give your orthodontist a few weeks to duplicate your records and refer you. Hopefully you will be finished with orthodontics before two years is up though.
