Time to Smile

Many are smiling as a new orthodontic practice, Lithgow Ortho, opens on Bridge Street.

Dr Derek Allan is pleased to open doors in Lithgow and looks forward to positively contributing to the community. As an orthodontist, Dr Derek provides braces, invisalign, plates and appliances to straighten teeth and perfect smiles.

An orthodontist is a trained, experienced dentist who has completed an additional university degree to become an orthodontist. Orthodontists treat their patients in a holistic way, ensuring that any treatment is best suited to a patient’s needs. Orthodontists are efficient at achieving amazing smile results because they see thousands of cases each year. Chances are they’ve seen a handful of cases just like yours and know exactly how to get the best results.

“It’s a fun and really rewarding job,” says Dr Derek. “We create beautiful smiles, which builds confidence in patients and makes them happy. For some, it literally changes their lives.”

The ideal age for an assessment is 8-9 years of age. In some cases early treatment is recommended to prevent future problems. Often, treatment will begin during the early teenage years. Dr Derek is an expert at treating both children and adults, he sees patients from age 7 to 70.  Anyone of any age who wants to improve their teeth or smile should call for a consultation.

The new practice is modern, digitally advanced and friendly, so that every patient visit is a comfortable, positive experience.  Located on Bridge Street in the Ground Floor of the Lithgow Medical Clinic, patients and parents will appreciate the close proximity to schools, TAFE and Main Street.

Aside from the welcoming experience and expert treatment, Dr Derek believes that orthodontics should be affordable. All of his fees are below the NSW and national averages (Source: Australian Society of Orthodontists Fee Survey 2013). Lithgow Orthodontics will work with patients to provide reasonable payment plans.

Dr Derek Allan completed his Dental degree at University of Sydney (Honours) and his Orthodontic degree at the University of Melbourne. He is an active member of international dental and orthodontic societies, to maintain a modern treatment approach.

Lithgow Orthodontics opened their doors in Lithgow on 1 October 2014
