About Us

The foundation of holistic orthodontics is based on good diagnosis and treatment planning.
This is what makes us different from other orthodontists.

Our Philosophy

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.

Our Difference

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

Had Invisalign treatment (top and bottom teeth) with Dr Masters from Feb '19 to March '20. Great professional and friendly service, options thoroughly explored and explained which was required as I had a tricky... situation with a remaining baby tooth to work around. Very pleased with the results, everything went smoothly in line with predicted time frames. Highly recommend Dr Masters to anybody else considering teeth straightening procedures.read more

I was very impressed with Dr Masters' approach, he took his time to explain the different treatment options for my particular dental problem. I have been suffering with jaw pain for several years and in 45 minutes Dr... Masters managed to explain to me what no one had been able to do for 20 years. I am very happy with the treatment and I no longer suffer from headaches and jaw pain. I highly recommend him.read more

I have recently started Invisalign treatment with Dr. Masters and so far I am really happy with it. Laurence is knowledgable, friendly and very professional. He takes the time to explain procedures and has a true... passion for his work. He offers the latest 3D technology instead of the horrible mold they usually take of your bite. He uses a camera that instantly projects your teeth on a screen - amazing technology and no discomfort.With English not being my native language, I was so happy that I could explain everything to him in my own language as he speaks Spanish, Portuguese and English all fluently! I highly, highly recommend him!!read more
