Orthodontic Excellence

Our Specialist Orthodontists aim to provide the very best quality of care for our patients. We offer contemporary Orthodontic treatment that can be tailored to meet your needs. Treatments range from alignment of crowded teeth using “invisible” braces, right up to complex cases requiring jaw surgery to correct facial disproportion.

The Orthodontic treatment is provided by Jay Kindelan and Debbie Pledger. Jay and Debbie both work at York Hospital Orthodontic Department, and work at Acomb Dental Care on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Jay and Debbie work under the banner “Orthodontic Excellence”, which is a reflection of the standards we aim to achieve. Jay is Consultant Orthodontist and Lead clinician for Orthodontics in North Yorkshire, and Debbie is the Speciality Doctor in Orthodontics at York Hospital.
