Pallant Orthodontics operates out of a beautiful Georgian building in the heart of Chichester. Specialist orthodontist, Dr Alastair Smith oversaw the remodeling of the Grade ll building to ensure it was equipped to offer patients the very best orthodontic experience. Together with the clinic’s Bognor Regis practice, Pallant Orthodontics provides exceptional patient care to the wider West Sussex community.
Technology plays a major role at Pallant Orthodontics. Digital impressions are taken using the iTero IntraOral Digital scanner which provides 3D impressions of a patient’s teeth. This enables Dr Smith and his team to show patients what their teeth currently look like and how they will look post-treatment. This technology is used for Invisalign, Incognito lingual and Empower metal braces.
Pallant Orthodontics undertakes regular patient surveys to ensure the team is meeting patient expectations. 96% of patients are extremely satisfied with their treatment at the practice, which offers flexible appointment times and affordable treatment fees. To date, the team have created over 1,600 smiles for patients, helping them to earn Platinum Elite Invisalign provider status.
