Over the past two years Dr Milan Raniga has been working towards his Diploma in Clinical Othodontics. This two-year post-graduate programmed delves into the theoretical and clinical training in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopaedics, giving Dr Raniga a greater and even more in-depth knowledge into the intricacies of orthodontics and the full-face philosophy of non-extraction orthodontic treatments.
The programme is run under the expert tutelage of Dr Derek Mahony – a world-renowned specialist orthodontist and passionate advocate of interceptive orthodontic treatment. His experience is vast, seeing an average of 250 patients per week over the last decade, and he shares his knowledge and experience willingly with practitioners from all over the world through his online courses, seminars, and speaking engagements.
The knowledge and experience Dr Raniga has gained through this course means that he is even better equipped to diagnose dental and dentofacial issues in patients of all ages and design a treatment plan that best suits their needs.
The full face philosophy means looking beyond the teeth, gum, and mouth. It means that your dentist takes the structure the whole face into consideration in diagnosing any issues, looking at the airways, jaw structure, and skull shape and assessing the potential for correction.
What this means for you or your child is that Dr Raniga and his team at McIntosh Dental are able to give an expert clinical diagnosis and design a treatment plan that will give you or your child the best long-term results without unnecessary extractions.
A dentist who has clinical knowledge and experience in the full-face philosophy is more likely to achieve results that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but that addresses issues such as mouth breathing, airway problems, grinding, under or over shot jaws and more.
We are proud to have such a dedicated dental surgeon on our team and congratulate Dr Raniga on his great achievement. We know his patients will benefit from his commitment to furthering his education and expanding his understanding of how to achieve the very best results for every one of his patients.
