A natural smile and more youthful appearance improve anyone’s confidence which can transform people’s lives.

    People often think invasive treatments are always necessary to improve their smile but it is often not the case. Dora’s keen interests is transforming smiles and straightening teeth without the need for conventional wire braces through Invisalign treatment. This is a popular, minimally intrusive way to improve the smile with barely visible aligners. Further Advanced post graduate training by the Dawson Academy in Functional Smile Design has enabled Dora to learnt to plan predictable aesthetic results through digital modelling and imagery. Allowing her patients to glimpse that ultimate transformation even before it has begun.
