At Masters Orthodontics Chester our philosophy is characterised by clearly defined treatment goals. Goal orientated treatment is much more than just straightening teeth, we look at the masticatory system as a whole. This approach is what we call HOLISTIC ORTHODONTICS: WE TREAT PEOPLE NOT JUST TEETH!
General dentists are legally allowed to provide orthodontic treatment but they don’t have the same level of experience or qualifications that a Specialist Orthodontist has. Dr. Laurence Masters trained to become a general dentist and then undertook another 3 years of postgraduate training to become a Specialist Orthodontist registered with the General Dental Council. He sat a further 2 year advanced postgraduate course in Orthodontics, occlusion, and TMJ and attends numerous national and international courses to keep up to date with the latest trends in the field.
At Masters Orthodontics we pride ourselves in treating both simple and complex cases such as severe crowding, small palates, open bites and TMJ problems. Our aim is to achieve a balance between beautiful smiles, healthy TMJ’s and healthy periodontum (gums).
The foundation of HOLISTIC ORTHODONTICS is therefore based on good diagnosis and treatment planning. This is what makes us different from other orthodontists. We dedicate a lot of time to studying and planning every case which allows us to formulate personalised treatments and consequently, better and more efficient results. No two treatments are the same and this bespoke approach is the cornerstone of what we do at Masters Orthodontics
