Dr. Steffen, our specialist orthodontist, has been awarded the No.1 Incognito™ Lingual brace provider in the world. Lingual braces are an invisible or hidden brace system which allows the gradual, gentle straightening of the teeth by placing the brace on the inside. This is known as lingual orthodontics and allows the teeth to be straightened without being noticeable, unlike traditional braces or Invisalign® which attach to the front-facing aspect of the teeth.
Dr. Steffen has intensively studied this type of brace and gained an additional Masters degree in advanced lingual orthodontics to complement his passion for this device. Having completed his primary dental training and his specialist training in Freiburg (Germany), Dr. Steffen is incredibly well versed in interceptive early treatment options for children as well as fixed braces - both traditional and lingual.
He has treated over 1500 lingual orthodontic patients and is a member of the global advisory board for 3M as the clinical advisor for western Europe.
Dr. Steffen uses only the most advanced technology and techniques to deliver the highest quality of care for his patients from digital smile design to intra-oral digital scanning in order to ensure his patients receive the best results. His commitment to his patients is only rivalled by his passion to teach - He regularly provides seminars and lectures globally on the subject of lingual orthodontics.
Dr Steffen is also Apex Platinum Invisalign Provider, which means he treats an average of 1000 Invisalign cases a year and belongs to Top 1% of all Invisalign providers in the world.
In addition to his many academic and clinical achievements in the dental field, Dr Steffen recently graduated from Kois Center - the only orthodontist in the UK to finish this prestigious course.
