Orthodontics is such a fascinating branch of specialist dentistry. The dental teams, technology, patient stories, history, events and new developments feature in this page.

News and Events

Through writing this blog, I have met some incredible people who have helped me to learn about more about orthodontics. I have attended a number of events and conferences and in doing so, have met more people who have shown an interest in helping me to grow the content of this blog.

I was invited to be one of the founder members of the British Orthodontic Society Patient Panel and have actively worked with the Society on a number of patient focussed campaigns to educate and inform patients about orthodontics.

This page contains a collection of articles about orthodontics, technology, news, events and interviews with some great people who have supported this blog.
