Owner and lead orthodontist, Dr Herriott, has been running the Burleigh Waters practice since 1999, giving him a wealth of knowledge in everything relative to orthodontics from the most effective methods to diagnostics and patient care. Dr Herriott is particularly interested and educated in adult orthodontic treatment, reiterating the fact that braces and orthodontics are in no way only for children, with less invasive methods of teeth straightening constantly evolving (e.g. Invisalign).
Coastal Orthodontics also recognises the importance of orthodontics for both health and aesthetics. Crooked and crowded teeth are difficult to maintain and clean, leading to problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. A bad bite can cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces and cause difficulty in chewing and speaking as well as affecting the entire facial construction. The aesthetic effects of orthodontics are clear, with huge rates of patient satisfaction after seeing their improved smile, increasing their overall self-confidence.
Dr Herriott, Dr Manek and Dr Boardman all collaborate to formulate individual treatment plans for each patient by carrying out an extensive initial examination (consult) and recommending the best possible treatment for minimal discomfort and optimal results.
So if you’re in the Burleigh Waters or surrounding Gold Coast areas, book you or your child in with Coastal Orthodontics Burleigh Waters to begin your journey to a perfect smile!
