Meet Dr. Shankar Bala

Dr. Shankar Bala has been practicing dentistry in the UK for the better part of the last decade. Over this time he has worked with a wide array of colleagues, team members and patients from different walks of life, picking up new skills every step of the way. All in order to provide the best possible care for his patients.

Despite having a background in general/cosmetic dentistry Dr Shankar found himself drawn towards orthodontics, and that’s where his passion truly grew.

Initially starting with short term orthodontics, like QST and 6 month smiles, he eventually moved to invisalign and conventional fixed orthodontics.

Now having completed many patient journeys to achieve the smile they have always wanted, Dr Shankar primarily focuses only on orthodontics and Invisalign to get you to your dream smile. Special Insterests: Traditional Orthodontics: Using fixed braces metal or clear to align your teeth providing you with a better function and aesthetics. Invisalign:
Straightening your teeth without the need for braces and having minimum impact on your day to day life. Lingual braces:

Traditional braces but aligning your teeth all the while being hidden away on the back surfaces of your teeth.
