Dr Daniel De Angelis, Specialist Orthodontist
Welcome to Transform Orthodontic Care!
As an experienced Specialist Orthodontist in Adelaide, I have had the privilege of being part of my patients lives over a considerable amount of time. It is an honour to treat siblings of the same family or often different generations within the one family!
My patients have always been at the centre of what I do. When I transitioned from my previous practice and created Transform Orthodontic Care, my patients and their continuity of care was paramount.
What’s my background?
After achieving a Bachelor of Dental Surgery and Bachelor of Science from The University of Adelaide, I went on to obtain a Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics.
These three extra years of additional university training means I am a specialist in straightening teeth (moving teeth is not a simple process!) and correcting bites. This is why I am known as a Specialist Orthodontist. All day, every day, I am solely focused on straightening teeth and correcting bites.
I hold a Diploma of Membership in Orthodontics of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and am a Member of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons in the Special Field of Orthodontics.
And last but not least, I’m also a Fellow of the International College of Dentists. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only to a nominated dentist who must pass a rigorous, peer review process.
Overall, this represents over 11 years of study, some of it completed while I worked full time.
Committed to Orthodontics
I’m committed to the dentistry and orthodontics professions. After work hours, I’ll often be found providing education and learning to the dental community in Adelaide.
I’ve been involved in several professional societies and organisations including:
- Membership of the Australian Society of Orthodontists
- the Australian Society of Endodontology
- the Australian and New Zealand Society of Paediatric Dentistry
- the Australasian Orthodontic Study Group
- Membership of the Australian Dental Association (serving as a councillor for three years).
- Clinical tutor at the University of Adelaide in the undergraduate orthodontic programme for two years
- Visiting Orthodontic Consultant for the Australian Craniofacial Unit at The Women’s & Children’s Hospital in Adelaide for three years
Together with Dr Bill Oberdan, I run the Interdisciplinary Study Group which provides continuing professional development and education for dentists and dental hygienists in Adelaide.
One of the most experienced orthodontists in Adelaide
I have treated over 10,000 patients – that’s a lot of transformed smiles!
I was one of Australia’s first providers of Invisalign and I am one of only three accredited Spark providers in Australia, so you know you are in experienced hands.
I have been using Invisalign for 18 years, and have treated more than 700 patients in Adelaide with Invisalign.
As a father of two young children, providing innovative and safe treatment is paramount. It’s what my wife and I would want for our own children.
At the heart of TOC is myself, my wife Penny (learn more about her here!), and our dedicated staff. We like to think of it as very much a family run orthodontic practice.
I really enjoy treating people of all ages including adults, adolescents and children. My passion is to ‘transform’ the smiles and the lives of all my patients.
The TOC Team
My team and I work together to achieve the best smile for each and every patient. Your treatment is delivered by myself and my professional and caring team of qualified Clinicians who have undertaken degree or advanced diploma qualifications in Oral Health.
In addition, our team of Clinicial Assistants, Treatment Coordinators and Administrative staff are invaluable in delivering the care we proud ourselves on. You will get to know the entire team over the course of your treatment.
