A message from our orthodontist

“Our aim has always been to provide the very best orthodontic treatment to patients referred into our care. It is with a great sense of pride and purpose that we expand our services to those in Aylesbury and the surrounding areas. This new orthodontic care studio will be built from the ground up with patients at its very heart. As an institution, it will be the embodiment of the values on which Belur Orthodontics was founded and stand testament to the collective passions of all those involved in making our journey thus far a huge success.
We would be delighted to represent your patients and serve as an extension of your dentistry offering. Together we can work to improve the health and happiness of our local communities, one smile at a time.”

About the new practice

Our primary focus when establishing a new studio was to put the patient experience at the heart of all we do. From the convenience afforded by nearby parking, ensuring accessibility at even the busiest of times, to the capabilities provided by our range-topping, on-site facilities; no expense has been spared in providing the very best for those who we welcome through our doors.

The site was selected for its accessibility, convenience and prominence. It is centrally-located, offers nearby free 2-hr parking facilities, and is within close proximity to several Grammar and Secondary schools, minimising the impact of term-time appointments. Further flexibility will be afforded by our friendly opening hours which will include late evenings and Saturdays.

Using our thriving Marlow studio as a model for success, we have built a team of highly trained and personable professionals to run the new studio. With almost 70 years of experience between them, the practice will be led by orthodontic specialists Vinay Belur  and orthodontic therapist Farah Adam. We are also happy to announce the experienced Georgiana Munteanu as our practice manager. This core contingent will be supported by a hand-picked team of trained nurses.

As a completely new enterprise there will be no lengthy waiting lists for patients. Furthermore, we will not be transferring patients from previous providers. This creates an excellent opportunity for dentists to refer patients for immediate treatment. We will be welcoming both adult and child patients for NHS (up to 18 yrs) and Private referrals, priority will be given to children aged 11yrs and above.

A key part of patient assessment will be the use of iTero scanners as part of treatment in the future, allowing our experts to provide a high-resolution, interactive digital map of the patients bite within minutes. This will allow for greater precision, comfort and speed, and reflects our continued investment in achieving clinical excellence.

Referral & form

To show support for UN Sustainability Goals, we have created an online referral form as part of the Go Green Go Online campaign. The additional benefit being that this digital referral system is intuitive, interactive and time-efficient for all involved. Referring dentists are also able to upload digital files like X-Rays, Medical health, Interdisciplinary treatments
and photographs.

We have also introduced an intuitive and interactive tick-box manual and e-form with referencing to IOTN scoring in the form of referral pad and USB pen. This is set to become mandatory as part of the Referral Management System coming next year. We will be accepting Private & NHS consultations for children, with Adult Private consultations and Free Assessments.

For convenience, dentists are also able to discuss referrals in person through our dedicated hotline on 01296 796 542.
