Principal: Jonty Meisner BDS, FDS RCS, MSc, MOrth RCS
The best thing about my job is - getting to know my patients and seeing their self-confidence grow as we help them achieve a great smile.
If I wasn't an orthodontist - I would love to be a primary school teacher and spend long summers in the Carribean – kitesurfing, diving and watching the sunset from my beach hammock. Winters would be spent in the Alps snowboarding. Dream on...!
When I am not helping straighten teeth in the clinic - I am enjoying time with my 3 kids or planning trips with them. I love playing the guitar, drums and going out kitesurfing (not all at once) - whenever I find the time.

If I wasn’t an Orthodontic therapist - I would be an international superstar!...and maybe working with children

The best thing about my job is - I love my job because I enjoy meeting people and being able to be involved in their treatment. Orthodontic treatment can make such a difference to a person’s confidence. I am very fortunate in working amongst a great team of professional people who are supportive and fun to be with. I can honestly say I enjoy going to work.
If I wasn't a dental nurse - If I was not a Nurse I would be – something else in the Health sector! When I was at school I wanted to be either a general nurse or an occupational therapist (OT). I didn’t get the grades I needed to be an OT and rather than resit - went into dental nursing. My other part time job is teaching trainee dental nurses which I also enjoy.
When I am not helping straighten teeth in the clinic - I am spending time with friends & relatives, dog walking and gardening.
