We are a small and friendly team at North Sydney Orthodontics headed up by the owner of the business Dr Charles Daniels. All of our staff are fully qualified and experienced orthodontic assistants. We undertake regular training to ensure our practice not only meets the requirements of modern practice but is second to none. Our patients enjoy a warm welcome from our helpful staff and we are lucky to have a native Chinese speaker in our team.
Meet the doctor
” I grew up in a middle class family, the sixth of seven children where I learned good family values. My motivation is to serve society through the art and science of dentistry- and I have always tried to be the best practitioner I can be to advise and treat my patients in their best interest.”
My training career
“I did well at school and entered Birmingham University with an open scholarship and studied general dentistry qualifying in 1988. I worked for 4 years in my first job as a dentist but soon realized that my calling was to practice orthodontics as a specialist. This decision took me to Cardiff in Wales and a hospital and university career spanning 8 years of full time education, research and teaching. The specialist orthodontic training in Cardiff is one of the longest established and most respected orthodontic training pathways in the UK. . more detail…
Move to Australia
Although I acquired several notable academic accolades during my training I am first and foremost a clinician – I like fixing stuff. A desire for adventure brought me to the southern hemisphere in 2003. My transitional job in Australia was for a major health fund, which gave me a feel for life down-under, and in 2006 I established North Sydney Orthodontics.
Starting a small business is not for the faint hearted but I have built a great team and I am proud of our many achievements. Owning my business allows me to focus on the things I believe are important for my patients and I have the autonomy to work to the highest standards. In recent years our success has allowed us to invest in fantastic technology and position us as one of the leading and most innovative specialist orthodontic practices in New South Wales. Our particular interest is in invisible braces, and adult orthodontics.
I enjoy a diverse set of outdoor pursuits including sailing, windsurfing kayaking, cycling and rock climbing. I ran the city to surf three times -returning a creditable personal best time of 62 minutes. I don’t consider myself a great sportsman but like any aussie bloke I can take charge around the barbie. I am blessed to have an understanding and supportive wife and 2 handsome sons
