About Us

We are four dentists who work in University Dental Schools. We all carry out research into orthodontics and publish this in journals. While we do have links with orthodontic societies and professional bodies we are independent and the views that we include on this website are our own. We aim to provide Orthodontic Sense to help you decide on treatment.
