Getting together to celebrate skills makes sense, orthodontics is a respected specialty in the UK.
A number of dentists offer types of orthodontic care and we would not wish to decry the service they provide. There is still a difference between general and specialist treatment.
You might take our lead orthodontist as an example, starting with a look at their General Dental Council registration. You can see from these entries who is a specialist and in which field.
Sarah Neale’s specialty training began at a London university orthodontics centre. Followed by a number of years at leading dental centres, paediatric and surgical experience, a post as a Specialist Registrar in Orthodontics.
Distinguished academic work and over a decade in Harley Street can be added in, the question is, should you be looking for these exceptional skills.
Success & Value
The conference above is busy, there are a number of international standard orthodontists in the UK. They also tend to be busy, because people recognise the benefits they can bring.
Regardless of need, they offer excellent success rates. Through specialist training, experience, diagnostic skills and an ability to build the type of relationship with patients that makes orthodontics work.
They tend to have other advantages, fine support staff, the latest facilities, an ability to take time, rather than stick to a restrictive appointment schedule. A complete focus on one field.
The odd thing is that whilst seeing a top specialist in Harley Street can be more expensive than other options, the difference is not so significant, although the added value is.
“I just need braces” is an understandable thought, although in most cases, not entirely true. Our teeth are as unique as fingerprints and tend to require an individual approach, to achieve the right outcome.
Dentists often promote chosen types of braces, which they have been trained on, whereas a leading orthodontist will help to make the right choice for you, from a wide range, or tailor made braces.
The initial diagnosis and treatment planning they provide will also be different. A complete understanding of underlying need, alongside a vision of outcome based on years of experience.
We hope you choose Harley Street Orthodontics, our clinic is welcoming and professional. Above all, we want to see patients use the specialist skills an orthodontist offers, wherever they may be.
