Bonded Retainer Problems during Covid 19

If you are looking for a clean, safe and a high performing team to take care of your teeth and deliver exceptional results; look no further. Thank you all!”
    Louise - Patient

  • “I skipped on having braces as a child and took the plunge when I was 28 as this was holding me back with my confidence. At first, I wondered what people would think of a grown man with braces, but I am pleased to say this had no impact at all and I never really noticed that I had them. I thoroughly recommend Colchester Orthodontic Centre to my friends, family and anybody else thinking about having treatment.”
    Warren - Patient

  • “After over 2 years of impeccable TLC from Colchester Orthodontic Centre my daughter is now able to show off the smile she has always deserved! Mr Davies was able to advise us with his wealth of experience as to what was needed, and the result is proof that they clearly know how to look after their client’s needs and ensure the best result at the end of the journey!”
    Paul - Patient

  • My Invisalign experience with Colchester Orthodontic Centre was fab. I was supported the whole way through and given many options and I am now really happy with my teeth. The Invisalign aligners are very comfortable and discreet. I would definitely recommend Invisalign treatment at Colchester Orthodontic Centre.”
    Hollie - Patient

  • “You can make the most of your teeth at any age. Sometimes mature years can make you feel awkward attending the orthodontist, although I have been encouraged and treated with care and attention at every appointment. I try to maintain my teeth as best I can and I have received the very best care you could wish for. I started out feeling reluctant to smile. I am now very happy to smile at any occasion and feel grateful to the wonderful team at Colchester Orthodontic Centre, the whole team treat you with professional care and kindness.”
    Anne - Patient
