Colours

Choose from a range of colours to accesorise your braces. Footy teams, seasonal colours or your favourite combinations. Have a many or as few as you prefer or stick with silver which matches the metal braces.

Scanner Wand

We use an iTero 3D digital scanner to aquire data for our Invisalign patients. On the tip of the wand is a lens which works like a video camera to capture images of the teeth and gums.

Invisalign

Straighten your teeth without braces! First we scan your teeth and then use the Invisalign system. A series of almost invisible aligners are manufactured to align your teeth.

3D Digital Scans

Our digital scanner allows us to make 3D models of teeth for improved accuracy of aligner fit. Compared to traditional impressions the aligners fit more accurately giving you a better result.

Infection Control

Our autoclave ensures all our insturments are sterile. We also use gloves and masks to prevent cross infection for all our patients.

Retainers

Invisible retainers are manufactured in our lab so your teeth remain stable after orthodontic treatment.

About Us

Dr. Ferguson

Dr. Ferguson studied dentistry in Adelaide and graduated with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1983. He then traveled to London and worked as a general dentist for two years. Returning to Adelaide he worked for the South Australian Dental Service. After completing the Primary examinations of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons he traveled back to England and commenced a Masters program in Orthodontics at Sheffield University. He completed his Masters Degree and the Diploma in Orthodontics at the Royal College of Surgeons, London, in 1989.

Returning to Australia, Dr. Ferguson joined an orthodontic practice as an assistant and later an associate.  After two years of ongoing training he opened his own room in Dandenong, in 1995.

Dr. Ferguson became a Member of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in 2008 in the special stream of orthodontics.

For the last 19 years Dr. Ferguson has been working as a sole practitioner at 70 Stud Road, Dandenong. This means that all patient and parent contacts are with Dr. Ferguson.

"I personally trace each x-ray, make treatment planning decisions, conduct parent discussions, fit the braces and carry out all adjustments, including removing the braces at the end of treatment and supervising the retainers"

Continuing Education

Things change quickly and it is important to stay current. Every year Dr. Ferguson travels to the U.S.A. where he attends the American Association of Orthodontists meeting. This is the biggest orthodontic conference in the world and features many lecturers from differnent countries and a huge trade display of all the latest technology and equipment available.

The new dental licencing body, A.P.R.A., requires that all orthodontists complete a minimum number of hours of C.P.D. (continuing professional development). Dr. Ferguson usually completes far more than the required minimum hours of ongoing education.
