Core Value Progression
Dentist Sean Living Our Core Values
True to our practice core value of progression, I have recently completed an extensive program of further training in orthodontics (teeth straightening).
My interest in orthodontics began over 10 years ago when I first started using clear aligners to improve my patient’s smiles. A few years later I then progressed into providing the option of using fixed cosmetic braces with the Six Month Smile® system.
While completing over a hundred cases I have always been keen to continue to develop my skills, to enable me to progress and undertake more complex cases safely, and ultimately provide my patients with more options and the potential to have complete care within Heath Dental. I have always been aware of the limitations of my skills and would refer a patient on to specialist orthodontists when appropriate.
So, over the last 12 months I have been undertaking a course organised by highly regarded specialist orthodontists, and having completed it successfully and I am now well equipped to take care of more challenging cases.
This will include those that not only would take longer than cosmetically focused fixed braces, but also ones that may require extraction of teeth.
I am also now able to offer some treatments to children, which, with ever increasing waiting lists and greater restriction of NHS orthodontic services, may be an option worth exploring.
With our affordable payment plans, orthodontic treatment may be more accessible than you think. Just speak to a member of our reception team and book a complimentary consultation to find out more.
