A little bit about Dr Daniel De Angelis

Dr Daniel De Angelis

As a Specialist Orthodontist, Dr De Angelis has been solely dedicated to straightening teeth and correcting bites for over 20 years.

After achieving a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and Bachelor of Science from the University of Adelaide, Dr De Angelis went on to obtain a Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics.

Moving teeth is not a simple process! Three additional years of university training means Dr De Angelis is a specialist in straightening teeth and correcting bites. This is why Dr De Angelis is known as a Specialist Orthodontist. All day, every day, he is solely focused on straightening teeth and correcting bites.

A Fellow of the International College of Dentists, Dr De Angelis has served as a clinical tutor at the University of Adelaide, as well as a Visiting Fellow at Westmead Children’s Hospital. He was also an accredited consultant for the Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Scheme, having worked as an orthodontic consultant for the Australian Craniofacial Unit at The Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

One of Australia’s first providers of Invisalign

Dr De Angelis was one of Australia’s first providers of Invisalign and has specialised in Invisalign treatment for 18 years. He is also a Platinum Invisalign provider, completing more than 700 Invisalign treatments. This makes us the experts in Adelaide for Invisalign. Dr De Angelis is also only one of three accredited Spark aligner providers in Australia.

Why choose us

At Transform Orthodontic Care, we believe that a smile is transformative. That’s how we got our name – we believe a smile can transform your confidence, your self-esteem, and your life.

Whether you’re a teenager navigating the world, an adult wanting a sparkling smile for your wedding day, or a young child receiving early orthodontic treatment to prevent braces later in life, every patient is unique and has their own journey of transformation.

As well as using the latest treatment options and technologies, our success comes down to being caring, gentle and professional. We strive to communicate openly with our patients from what they can expect, how long it will take, what the fees are and if it will be pain free.

Please let us know if you need us to run through anything with you with regards to your treatment – or if you have any questions as someone who is thinking about undertaking orthodontic treatment. Give us a call on 133 TOC or email us at info@transformorthocare.com.au.

We have answered some Frequently Asked Questions here and our blog has more information regarding braces and clear aligner treatment options.
