Dr Helen Lawton

 Specialist Orthodontist
BDS, MPhil, MSc(Lon), MOrth RCS(Edin), MFDS RCS (Eng)

I am a specialist orthodontist with many years of experience. I qualified from Sheffield University in 1996 with honours in dentistry and an overall distinction in my final exams. After a year working in general dental practice I returned to hospital where I spent two years working as a senior house officer in oral and maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics.

I did my orthodontic postgraduate degree at The Royal London Hospital during which time I won the British Orthodontic Society BOTLA award for my planned research. I also gained a Masters of Science in Orthodontics from the University of London with an overall distinction both academically and clinically.

I gained my Membership in Orthodontics from the Royal Collage of Surgeons England in 2002 before starting work at the Grosvenor Orthodontic Practice where I worked for four years before moving into specialist practice in Sevenoaks for ten years. I returned to the team at the Beckenham practice in 2017 to take on the role of lead clinician.

I am qualified to provide invisible braces such as Incognito and Invisalign. I also offer treatments with cosmetic braces fitted to the outside of the teeth and a low friction form of appliance that helps to minimise the need for extractions.

Helen’s specialist training is evident, and her background in management of nervous patients in her calm and reassuring approach with both children and adults. She puts the patient’s needs first and takes the time to listen to and manage all their concerns. Every patient receives her attention and care to achieve a beautiful smile.
