Huge congratulations to our specialist orthodontist Dr Sunil Hirani for recently passing his World Society of Lingual Orthodontics (WSLO) exam.

Dr Hirani has been busy preparing for this prestigious qualification. The majority of specialists sitting the examination have practised lingual orthodontics for a minimum of 10 years.

We are extremely proud that Dr Hirani has achieved this accreditation.  He is currently the only consultant-trained specialist orthodontist in the UK to hold this qualification. An expert panel of lingual examiners from around the world assessed his cases, considering difficulty, standard of records, treatment planning skills, efficiency of treatment, outcome, cephalometric tracings and post-treatment stability. As of 2019, only 246 individuals have passed this exam worldwide so it’s a huge achievement.

The examination took place at the 8th WSLO Congress in Barcelona, Spain.  Dr Hirani was also an invited speaker and gave a presentation on Lingual lever arm mechanics and the current evidence.  This was extremely well received.

Lingual braces are braces that are fixed to the back of your teeth so they are very discreet and almost invisible.  We are very fortunate that we are able to offer this treatment to our patients here at SmileLux under the skilled and expert guidance of Dr Hirani. Dr Hirani is also the chairman of the British Lingual Orthodontic Society (BLOS).
