Specialist Orthodontics

In the UK, all dentists are permitted to provide orthodontics and can even call themselves ‘orthodontists’. By contrast, Specialist Orthodontists undertake three years of extra full-time training and study. Exams must be passed before qualifying (MSc and MOrth) to be registered as a Specialist with the General Dental Council (GDC). In addition to achieving Specialist Orthodontist status, Dr. Orton-Gibbs undertook three further years of training – treating the most difficult orthodontic cases – to become a hospital Consultant. These are the best of the best, the top of their field, and adhere fully to GDC rules and guidelines.
