Do an internet search for braces in Hampshire and you’ll find pages and pages of search results. Adult braces seem to be all the rage now that there are clear braces to take the embarrassment out of having your teeth straightened. This means more and more dental practices are offering them as part of their services. However, there is a difference between going to a dental practice with a general dentist trained in a specific teeth-straightening method versus going to a dental practice with an orthodontist.
At Winchester Orthodontics, Suzette Mulder, our Hampshire orthodontist, hasn’t just undergone training in specific teeth straightening systems but has also devoted years more in training to become an orthodontist.
What does it take to become an orthodontist?
To become a general dentist already takes five years, but becoming an orthodontist takes a whole lot longer. There are 3 years of intense study focusing on how to treat misaligned teeth and bites that don’t come together properly. Then on top of this, many orthodontists will also hit the books once more to get a master’s degree.
Our Hampshire orthodontist is a case in point. After qualifying as a dentist Suzette completed her postgraduate diploma in orthodontics and a Master of Science at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. She then completed yet another master’s degree at Medunsa Medical University, South Africa, in orthodontics and finally got her UK Membership in Orthodontics (MOrth) from the Royal College of Edinburgh.
So, why choose a Hampshire orthodontist for your braces treatment?
With all those years of extra training and study, Suzette, our Hampshire orthodontist, can handle all manner of teeth straightening problems, from the mild to the complex.
