Orthodontist Brisbane QLD

An orthodontist is the most qualified person to diagnose, prevent and treat any problems you might have with the alignment of your teeth and jaws

 

The difference between a dentist and an orthodontist

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry which specialises in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of problems in the alignment of teeth and jaws. The technical term for these problems is malocclusion, which literally means “bad bite”.

Orthodontic treatment involves the design and use of corrective appliances (such as braces, plates, headgears and functional appliances) to bring the teeth and jaws into proper alignment.

Our orthodontists are dentists who have completed an additional three years of full-time University education to specialise in the assessment, prevention and correction of irregularities in tooth and jaw relationships and deformities of the face produced by aberrations in both facial growth and development and tooth eruption.

In Australia an orthodontist must:

  • Complete a Bachelor Degree in Dentistry (a 5-year full-time university course);
  • Complete a Master Degree in Orthodontics (a 3 year full-time University course);
  • Be registered as a Specialist in Orthodontics by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

At Greater Springfield Orthodontics, our two specialist orthodontists have more than 30 years of combined experience. We pride ourselves on offering the latest technology in a warm, compassionate and friendly environment. Integrity is paramount and we always put our patient’s needs first.

An orthodontist is, therefore, the most qualified person to diagnose, prevent and treat any orthodontic problems you may have. Why risk your smile?

Really inpatient, if you are 5 minutes late and you will be rescheduled to 2 months’ later date. Worst service ever.

Highly recommend. From my son's first consultation a few years ago with Dr Southall to getting braces with Dr Clare and the continued care with Sharyn, the process has been easy, well explained, and made affordable for us. The whole team at GSO has been great to deal with.

I would like to give a very BIG thank you to Dr Natasha Clare and the rest of the amazing staff. I highly recommend Greater Springfield Orthodontics, especially for adult braces. My braces were barely visible & just took 17 months to give me the smile I wanted! The whole process was seamless and very easy going, to my surprise. The Suresmile Technology was great! The kind reception staff were very flexible with my schedule & I was never afraid to ask questions and raise any queries. The whole team was just outstanding.Thank you! 5 stars.
