About Herts Orthodontics

Herts Orthodontics was established in 2003.
All of our clinicians are UK qualified specialist orthodontists and registered as such with the General Dental Council (GDC). We all hold degrees in dentistry and have chosen to train as specialists in orthodontics, which we find to be a very rewarding profession, as it uses our technical skills to improve your natural smile aesthetics. We get a great deal of satisfaction seeing our patients grow in confidence as their treatment progresses. They soon realise that they will no longer have to avoid showing their teeth when smiling, as their bite is being corrected.

We also have a team of experienced orthodontic therapists, receptionists and dental nurses who have regular involvement in training and professional development. They are all committed towards providing you with a caring and professional service throughout your treatment with us.

We provide you with the option of either National Health Service (NHS), or private orthodontic treatment.

In 2010, our practice achieved the Core Standard for ‘Investors in People‘. We have also been recognised by the British Dental Association, by gaining membership of their Good Practice Scheme.
