About Beam Orthodontics

As Specialist Orthodontists, we perfect smiles using braces. It’s all we do.

Orthodontics is the specialised technique using braces to straighten teeth that are squint, gappy or don’t fit together properly. At Beam, recently voted ‘Best Specialist Practice’ at the Dentistry Scotland Awards 2012,we work with patients of all ages from all over Dundee, Fife, Perthshire and Angus at our practice on South Tay Street, Dundee.

Using the very latest techniques, which include invisible and tooth coloured braces, we correct imperfections large and small. After treatment patients frequently report significantly increased confidence and that they can’t stop smiling.

Treatment Received: Braces
My 8yr old daughter needed a brace to correct a protruding tooth. Regular appointments to check progress. Brace off after 15 months.

Excellent experience for my daughter as she felt like braces made her cool. Great staff.
