Who is George Campbell?

As a well-respected and active figure in the world of orthodontics he is a master of his profession, and his background alone clearly demonstrates why he is so successful. Dr Campbell was born and schooled in Glasgow before starting his journey into orthodontics by studying Dentistry at Edinburgh University.

He did a brief stint as a Captain in the British Army after his graduation and then went on to fill various posts in oral and maxillofacial surgery whilst completing Royal College of Surgeons fellowship in Glasgow. Following on from his fellowship, he travelled to London and got his MSc as well as spending three years as the Registrar in Orthodontics at the well renowned Guy’s Hospital.

Going between Scotland and London he achieved his MOrth in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh and then worked as a consultant in Orthodontics at a hospital near London for a year. It was after this he opened up his first practice in East Kilbride, Scotland in 1999. The success of this practice resulted in him growing and opening six more in the Scotland area including:

What services does George Campbell offer?

Orthodontic treatments have advanced a lot in recent years, with considerably more flexible options, including ones that are less visible which is often a particularly important requirement to people opting for braces as an adult. There are more styles of braces for you to consider that are generally smaller and more comfortable to wear, whilst being equally as efficient at straightening teeth as traditional braces. The various services you could get through George Campbell include:

Invisible braces

One of the most popular brace options in adults, Invisalign is a treatment plan that has clear plastic aligners that shift your teeth into position. Their popularity is largely due to them being removable and practically invisible to people around you.

Fixed metal braces

Fixed metal braces make use of metal brackets, archwires and ligatures (elastic bands) to straighten teeth. Despite these being the most traditional type of brace, huge steps have been made so they are now much less bulky, and easier to wear.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are much like traditional braces except they are produced from a ceramic material and are designed to match the colour of your teeth, making them less visible.

Self-ligating braces

These types of braces have sliding brackets that let the archwire move in accordance with your teeth, so they work with less friction and don’t need elastic bands.

 

George Campbell is a highly professional and experienced orthodontist that can help you find the right brace option for you and ensure you’re happy with the results after your treatment is over.
