Our Services

The right techniques for you.

With more than 25 years of clinical expertise in the orthodontic field, we are experts in many techniques. We will always advice you on the best techniques that suit your specific requirements and needs.


In our office we treat children and adults for their orthodontic treatments including orthognathic surgical cases.

We advise our patients to have a first orthodontic consultation for their children between the ages of seven and eight. There is no specific age to begin orthodontic treatment, we use our professional expertise on an individual basis depending on the clinical needs of your child.

Working With Children

Some cases require two steps of orthodontic treatment, where the first step is a preventive and corrective stage between the ages of 7-10. Treating children with thumb sucking problems, cross-bites etc. The second step is performed around 12 years of age with a full comprehensive orthodontic treatment, involving full braces.

Working with Adults

In recent years the number of adult patients seeking orthodontic treatments has been increasing steadily, due to the professional and social importance of a straight, happy smile.

We offer a wide choice of treatments and will help you find the techniques best suited to your lifestyle and requirements. Based on your needs we will coordinate our orthodontic work with other specialists such as periodontist, oral surgeon, general dentists etc.
