What Is The Difference Between A Dentist and A Specialist Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a dentist who has gone on to do further, specialist training in orthodontics on an approved university course – resulting in the award of a Master’s Degree or Doctorate in Orthodontics as well as Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MOrth) or equivalent. An orthodontist has been examined by the Royal College of Surgeons and their specialist status is awarded and published by the General Dental Council.

Although some general dentists are offering orthodontic treatment they have not undergone this recognised and approved training and will generally only be comfortable with simple cases. A specialist orthodontist’s training allows them to be able to treat some of the most complex orthodontic cases, including facial deformity and orthognathic surgery.

An overdue review. When I attended the clinic last year, I was delighted with the kindness and professionalism of the... staff, as well as their excellent service in managing my orthodontic situation (re-gluing bracket and creating a new retainer). The work that was done far exceeded my more recent experiences at other clinics and I'm still chuffed with the results. I would go back in a heartbeat. I highly recommend the clinic to others!read more

Great service from the start! I highly recommend Ocean.My daughter desperately needed some help with her teeth so I... moved her from another practice due to not being seen for over 18 months and my daughter becoming so conscious of her teeth.A friend of my daughter recommended us, I was so happy with the way I was dealt with when I called and explained I would like to be added to their books -I was given the information I needed to make that happen and felt they understood my concern for my daughter and the delay we had experienced elsewhere in any treatment starting.From having her 1st check up at the end of November my daughter had her brace fitted mid January and is now well on the way to a better smile! 🙂 The Treatment plan was well explained to my daughter as well and the fitting procedure and the cleaning process.Ocean have been amazing! They are so prompt and their communication is brilliant.The Covid safety measures in place are very reassuring.The practice is up to date with the latest equipment, bright, lovely and clean and all the staff have been so friendly and professional and made me and my daughter feel at ease from the start.Can't recommend highly enough! Thank you all at Ocean Orthodontics.read more
