The Orthodontists

All the orthodontists in The Orthodontic Clinic are specialists, having completed postgraduate specialist training in Orthodontics involving a Master of Science degree in Orthodontics, on top of a 5 year Dentistry degree.
In the UK, the completion of specialist training is marked by the Membership in Orthodontic examination, accredited by the Royal Colleges of Surgeons.
In addition, Dr Lisa Currie has further trained to the level of Consultant Orthodontist, which involves further training within hospital, beyond specialist level in Orthodontics. She has lectured widely on Orthodontic subjects and published in national and international journals.
As part of their training, our orthodontists have been exposed to the full range of orthodontic techniques on a complete spectrum of patients. Through further courses and training, their experience has widened to include lingual appliances, Invisalign and self-ligating brackets.
