We are so proud of our very own Dr Lisa Currie (Clinical Director of The Orthodontic Clinic) who is now a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Glasgow (RCSP Glasgow).
The graduation ceremony was held on Friday 22nd November at the University of Glasgow. A very proud day indeed...
She is already a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Faculty of Dental Surgery) and was awarded this through examination in 2006.
This year, she was honoured to be elected to receive a Fellowship of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (Orthodontics) from the RCPS Glasgow.
Becoming a Fellow is an acknowledgement of an individual's contribution to the dental profession, its standards and practice. It's truly an honour.
Fellowship of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS) is offered to dental surgeons who, in the opinion of College, have made substantial contributions to their specialty or who are senior members of the dental profession and whose published works and attainments are, in the opinion of the Council, of such distinction as to justify election.
Congratulations Dr Currie on this outstanding achievement!

Dr Lisa Currie was invited by the Dean of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, Professor Graham Ogden, to speak for the British Dental Association Group of Dundee and Perth last night.
Dundee University is Lisa's alma mater, where she graduated in Dentistry with Honours in 1996. The lecture was given to an audience of both hospital and general dentists and was titled "The management of snoring and mild sleep apnoea - a dental perspective."
Lisa has carried out a Masters research degree in this subject and it is a field of dentistry that she has a special interest in.
She spoke about the role of dentists in screening and managing these types of patients and the various oral appliances that can be used to treat the condition.
Approximately 50 people attended and it was a real honour to be invited to speak at the University of Dundee where she graduated 23 years ago.
The Orthodontic Clinic provides anti-snoring treatment and both Dr Currie and Dr Rodolfino are accredited practitioners for the Somnowell appliance.
On Tuesday 17th September, it was TOC's 1 year anniversary of us moving into our new premises at 21 Golden Square!!
We've had an amazing year and to celebrate our 1st birthday, our TOC family had a dedicated day of team building at Lochter Activity Centre.
It was an incredible day with fun activities including 4x4 blindfold driving, digger challenge, clay pigeon shooting, archery, go carting and a tyre challenge.
What an amazing place and such great staff who treated us so well.
It was an absolutely super day; just a brilliant time had by all but most importantly, a wonderful bonding experience for us all to strengthen our relationships and help us be the best team we can be.
Happy birthday TOC!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from The Orthodontic Clinic to all our patients and friends!
We feel it’s very important to give back to our local community and so we looked around for local charities to see what we could get involved in. We came across the charity Children 1st and read about the amazing work they do for vulnerable and abused children in Scotland.
Their vision for the future is a happy, healthy, safe and secure for every child and young person in Scotland. At The Orthodontic Clinic, we see and treat so many children and it really struck a chord with us. After learning more about them and seeing some of the work they do, we felt very inspired and wanted to make a contribution to this very worthwhile cause.
We were honoured to have been invited by the charity to the annual Children 1st charity ball. Our directors attended this wonderful evening on 17th November and met some truly great people who work for and contribute to the charity.
The charity celebrated 30 years this year, so it was an even more special occasion. A evening really highlighted the very important work that they do and ways in which everyone and anyone can help.
(Please Twitter) #GiveTheGift or www.givethegift.org.uk
Please do share this and by doing so, we hope more people can help the Children 1st charity. Thank you.
Our Clinical Director, Dr Lisa Currie, in her role as Honorary Senior Lecturer at Aberdeen University (Dental School), was lecturing the 4th year dental students on Friday (17 November).

A number of our team attended the annual British Orthodontic Conference held this year in Brighton, over the weekend. It was a wonderful opportunity to listen to speakers from around the world discuss the latest research in orthodontics and share clinical pearls of wisdom. Everyone had a fantastic time and had a chance to speak with many of the orthodontic trade suppliers and see what's new in our speciality.
