We are delighted to  welcome Simone to the team as our second orthodontic therapist. Simone has worked in orthodontic practice for 11 years so brings a wealth of experience and another friendly face!

If you are wondering what an orthodontic therapist is, here’s the British Orthodontic Society’s definition:

“An orthodontic therapist is a registered member of the dental team. They assist dentists/orthodontists in carrying out orthodontic treatment and provide some aspects of the treatment themselves. They can only work to the treatment prescribed from a dentist/orthodontist and within their competence (ability) and scope of practice as defined by the GDC and within the recommendations of BOS.”

In a nutshell, Simone will work under the supervision of Mr McLaughlin and Mr McGregor helping to deliver big patient smiles!
