He is on the Specialist Register (orthodontics) of the General Dental Council and is a member of the World federation of orthodontists, American Association of Orthodontics and the British & European Orthodontic Societies.

As an orthodontic specialist Dr Sharma accepts referrals for all ranges of orthodontic problems affecting adults and children including those requiring Jaw surgery and where appropriate provides treatment utilizing a variety of orthodontic appliances including: cosmetic ‘tooth coloured’ braces, self-ligating braces, lingual braces (braces placed on the inside of the teeth) and Invisalign (clear aligners).

We are delighted that Dr Sharma is now working at the practice as he brings so much varied experience and in-depth knowledge of current orthodontic treatments.

Once your treatment is complete, Dr Sharma offers his adult patients complimentary tooth whitening, so they can smile with complete confidence.
