At the Specialist Orthodontic Centre Hertfordshire, we are fortunate to have not one but two experienced UK registered specialist orthodontics. This means they have undergone an additional 7 years of post-graduate training in order to become a specialist orthodontist. We use the most up to date materials and appliances and our skilled clinicians are certified and trained in using 3D intra oral digital scanners which are up to seven times more accurate than conventional dental impressions and ideal for patients with a severe gag reflex.
