Dr Daniel Tan
(AKA Orthodontist Extraordinaire)

Dr Tan completed his Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree with Honours at the University of Sydney in 2004. He went on to work in both in Public and Private practice as a general dentist for many years where he developed his interest in orthodontics and improving a patients smile, facial balance and aesthetics as well as their self-esteem and confidence.
Dr Tan completed the Specialist degree in Orthodontics (Doctor in Clinical Dentistry (Orthodontics)) at the University of Sydney in 2011 and has worked at specialist orthodontic practices in the east, south and south west of Sydney doing the full range of orthodontic treatment using the latest technologies for braces and aligners and early treatment. What sets Dr Tan apart is his expert knowledge, that is not limited to Orthodontics, but general dentistry – having been both a general dentist and orthodontist simultaneously for many years. It means that Dr Tan doesn’t just ‘straighten your teeth’, he is able to approach your orthodontic treatment with consideration of all the factors pertinent to achieving the best dental result -functionally, as well as aesthetically. Dr Tan does this by working harmoniously with your family dentist to achieve the best possible result for you.
Dr Tan’s passion is orthodontics and his family, making it easy for him to provide friendly and helpful advice to his patients and parents! He is universally known as the nicest orthodontist in town; always willing to spend time sharing his knowledge with both his patients, and dentists alike. His gentle and calm nature and amazing treatment results will have you wondering why you didn’t come in to see him sooner!
