Who is an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dentist who has undergone specialist training in diagnosing, preventing and treating misaligned teeth, bites, as well as facial irregularities.

Orthodontists in Adelaide are required to complete 5 years of study as a dentist, then an additional 3 years of education and training to become a specialist orthodontist. Every orthodontist in Australia is required to be registered with the Specialist Registry of the Dental Board of Australia.

That’s why when it comes to getting the best treatment in straightening your teeth, we always recommend getting the assistance from a specialist orthodontist compared to a general dentist.

At The Orthodontic Place, our lead orthodontist is Dr Sara Dudley. Dr Sara Dudley completed her specialist training in orthodontics at The University of Melbourne in 2004 and has practiced for years in the field of orthodontics. Her specialties cover tailored orthodontic treatments for all ages including children, teenagers, and adults.

Orthodontist For Kids

Correcting teeth misalignment issues in kids or young children can significantly reduce the treatment time needed once they’re older, or even eliminate the need for further orthodontic treatment entirely. We recommend seeing an orthodontist after your child has turned the age of 7, as this is when the first molars and incisors have erupted and any teeth alignment issues such as crowding can be seen. 

If you’re looking for orthodontists for kids in Adelaide, look no further than the leading team at The Orthodontic Place. We’re also available to cater to children who may prefer female orthodontists or if you’re looking for a more kid-friendly dental clinic for your children.

Orthodontist For Teens

Orthodontic treatment is most commonly started in the teenage years or in early adolescence – especially the ages of 11 to 15. This is a period where teenagers go through growth spurts and may continue to develop their jaw well into their late teens.

Only experienced orthodontists like Dr Sara Dudley at The Orthodontic Place in Adelaide are able to provide tailored orthodontic treatment that takes advantage of this, whilst ensuring that the treatments work with their growing bodies to achieve the best outcomes possible.

Orthodontist For Adults

The most common concern among adults seeking orthodontic treatment is the visual appearance or the aesthetics of orthodontic treatments. This is why adult orthodontists (or orthodontists for adults) are highly specialised in other forms of orthodontic treatments that are less visible, compared to the traditional metal bracket braces.

At The Orthodontic Place in Adelaide, we provide less noticeable orthodontic treatment options that are more appealing for adults. These include ceramic or clear braces, Invisalign or invisible braces.

Dr Sara Dudley always provides plenty of personal attention for every patient, as each patient’s smile is a customised work of art, that requires special needs.
