About Our Practice

Orthodontics Sydney Wide is a large, well-respected orthodontic practice which has been in existence for almost 50 years.  To become a specialist orthodontist we first must study at university to become a dentist. We are then required to go back to university for a number of years and obtain a higher degree (Master of Dental Science) in the speciality of orthodontics. This then allows us to be given specialist registration.

Our first surgery was set up in Parramatta in the mid-60s.  There are currently 6 orthodontists working in the practice all of whom are specialist orthodontists with post-graduate degrees in orthodontics and registered as specialist orthodontists with the Dental Board of Australia. They are also members of the Australian Society of Orthodontics. As well as the higher degree, all the orthodontists in our practice have a combined experience of over 80 years.
