Dr. Lesley Short


Dr. Lesley Short loves her work, and she loves making people feel better about themselves. She is the mother of three grown children who have all had orthodontic treatment. Dr. Short has over 20 years’ experience as a specialist orthodontist, including teaching in Australia, the US and Canada. She practised orthodontics for 12 years in Macquarie St Sydney, with a branch practice in Noosaville.

Uniquely Qualified


In 2003, Lesley took a position teaching orthodontics to graduate students in one of Canada’s leading universities, the University of Western Ontario. During her time there, she was an external examiner for postgraduate students at the University of Toronto and New York University.

Lesley also reviewed articles for the American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics. The US are widely recognised as the inventors and leaders in modern orthodontics, and Lesley gained experience in techniques that can reduce treatment time with braces to as low as 8 months – a reduction of 66% compared to regular treatment time.

Serving the Sunshine Coast


More recently, Lesley returned to Australia to set up her clinic in Noosa and use these techniques for the benefit of people on the Sunshine Coast and South-East Queensland.
