Due to our on-going educational exposure we are able to continually integrate the newest and best products in Orthodontics into our practice, and successfully use the latest Orthodontic techniques.

Equipment and Technology

We use the latest braces, techniques and technology to create beautiful smiles. We are able to straighten teeth, for the majority of our patients, without the need for dental extractions.

We are proud of our state of the art facilities within our 8 welcoming and comfortable surgeries. All 3D scans, digital x-rays OPGs and cephalometric radiographs are processed within the practice in our Image Suite. We also use intra-oral scanning, meaning dental impressions can be avoided.
