The specialty of orthodontics
The word orthodontics comes from two Greek words; the orthos means right and dons means tooth. Hence, to have orthodontic treatment is to have your teeth corrected or made right.
Orthodontics is considered to be dentistry’s first specialty and it deals in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disharmonies in the relationships of teeth and face.
Mount Elizabeth Orthodontic Clinic (MEOC) is a specialist dental practice that is restricted to Orthodontics.
Dr. Lim Hong Meng started his private practice at the Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre in 1997 and has since developed an interest in the field of lingual/invisible orthodontics as more adults are seeking aesthetic orthodontic treatment.
