Dr. K.Y. Chye completed part of his secondary schooling in Sandford Park School, Ranelagh, Dublin and The High School, Rathgar, Dublin. While his dental training was done in Dublin Dental Hospital (University of Dublin, Trinity College Dublin), Dr. Chye obtained his dental qualification in 1989. Later, he did his three years of specialist orthodontic training at the University of Wales College of Medicine, Cardiff, Wales, U.K. in 1996 and qualified as a specialist orthodontist in 1999.
Dr. Chye has been practicing in his own private orthodontic clinic in Mullingar since 2002 and has been a practicing specialist orthodontist in Ireland since 1999. Dr. Chye has a strong interest in the use of the highly efficient self-ligating bracket systems in treating his orthodontic patients and has given lectures to other orthodontists on the subject of using this system.
Dr. Chye treats a broad range of patients from children to adults with the self-ligating fixed brace system. Dr. Chye also provides lingual braces (e.g. Incognito) or pull-down vacuum formed braces (e.g. Invisalign, Simpli5 etc.) for suitable cases. While in some cases Dr. Chye will be treating patients with an orthognathic surgeon when the upper and lower jaw discrepancy of these patients are too great to give a satisfactory treatment outcome with just fixed braces on its own. Hence the orthognathic surgeon will be resetting the jaw/s for these patients as part of their orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Chye’s orthodontic philosophy is to provide the best possible dental and facial outcome for his patients.
Dr. Chye is a registered Specialist Orthodontist with the Irish Dental Council and is an active member of the Orthodontic Society of Ireland (OSI), American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), European Orthodontic Society (EOS) and the World Federation of Orthodontists (WFO).
