Orthotic Inserts

As a preventative measure, I have recently purchased molded inserts from an Orthotic insert dealer called Action Orthotics. A friend of mine is considering doing the same since most shoes do not offer much support.
I would like to know if there is an advantage to getting the inserts from a Pedorthist instead of a "Insert Specialist"? Also, is there a difference between a Podiatrists and a Pedorthist?

An ideal cushion to help preserve metatarsal phallangeal joint alignment (e.g. bunion deformity and post-operative toe drift).
