Sunshine Coast Orthodontics
Treatment - (07) 5447 5040
Dr Lesley Short has taught Orthodontics to dental professionals at
the University of Western Ontario who study for an additional 3 years after becoming dentists in
order to become well-informed, authorised orthodontists.
Due to Dr Short’s extensive experience in lecturing, teaching and
practicing orthodontics for more than 20 years, she is completely equipped with knowledge and skill
to provide the most preeminent treatment options there are today. Utilising various new and improved inconspicuous techniques including invisible
aligners and brackets or lingual brackets (on the tongue side of the teeth) Dr Short is leading the
way in Orthodontics here in Australia.
Additionally there are new Temporary Anchorage Devices (TAD's) or
mini implants that were not available until recently that facilitate tooth movement without the
need for old-fashioned headgear, elastics and in some cases surgery.
Dr Short has also learnt a number of techniques that can shorten
the treatment time by 50% to 66% - that is 8 - 12 months instead of 24 months for regular treatment
with the same results.
