Why Choose Dr Cox?

Treatment by a Specialist

Any dentist can practice orthodontics but only those dentists who have undertaken a 3 year full time post-graduate study in Orthodontics are allowed to call themselves a specialist orthodontist. Shirley is trained to specialist level and is registered with the General Dental Council as a specialist orthodontist. She has also completed additional training to consultant level and now works part time as an Orthodontic Consultant at the new Barts Dental Hospital at the local Royal London Hospital site.

All Orthodontists are Dentists but only 3% of Dentists are qualified as specialist Orthodontists.

Shirley is able to offer the very latest treatments available, enabling her to treat adult and child patients who have simple, moderate and complex needs and to improve both the appearance and the function of their teeth.

You would see Dr Cox on every step of your Orthodontic journey.

Choice and High Quality treatment

A lot of different braces have been tried before settling on a range that offers our patients the best results and aesthetics. These include clear fixed braces, hidden lingual braces and Invisalign removable aligners. During your free consultation, we’ll discuss all of the options available to you, and in some cases we can even mix and match your braces to suit your needs.

Shirley uses the latest techniques and equipment making sure every patient receives the best treatment possible.

Friendly and Caring Service

You will be looked after by friendly and caring staff who will ensure that each of your visits is a pleasant one.

Convenient Location

Located at Royal Wharf in the heart of London Docklands and Wapping near the city of London.

Honest Pricing

The price you will be quoted will include all appliances and visits from the start of treatment to when your braces are removed. The price quoted will not change if your treatment takes longer or shorter than planned, or if reasonable breakages occur. The only exception is that if you neglect your brace and lose Incognito brackets (attachments) or Invisalign aligners, these will be charged separately as we incur additional costs.

After care

Aftercare is very important and is provided as standard to patients. We provide one year of follow-up care (Free of charge) after your braces have been removed including a review appointment to ensure your teeth stay straight for future years.
