Total Orthodontics first opened its doors in May 2000, beginning life as a joint venture between specialist orthodontists Rod Ferguson, Keith Harvey, John Costello and Keith Underwood.
In the beginning the company was formed of four practices, located in Crawley, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Cuckfield. But four soon became five, when specialist orthodontist Baz Parmar and his Hove-based orthodontic practice joined the group.
Shortly after the partners opened a new orthodontic practice in Horsham in 2002, before specialist orthodontists Richard Jones and Grant Harris joined the fray to bring the total number of partners to seven. And aptly the group went on to open practice number seven in the town of Sevenoaks.
By 2006 Total Orthodontics Cuckfield had outgrown its premises and made the move to a brand new purpose built practice in nearby Haywards Heath.
The following year the partnership incorporated to form Total Orthodontics Limited. And at the same time Keith Underwood retired, to be replaced by specialist orthodontist Richard George.
The next few years saw us open our head office in Horsham, extend our Sevenoaks practice, and move our Tonbridge practice into brand new premises, conveniently located just across the road from the old practice (phew!).
Our Brighton practice also enjoyed a refurbishment, to bring the branding and facilities up-to-date.
In 2010 we opened our 10th practice in the East Sussex town of Uckfield. Followed by our most recent addition to the family – Total Orthodontics Eastbourne, which opened in 2012.
With orthodontic clinics also running from two dental practices in Lewes and Cranbrook, it’s been a busy but rewarding 13 years, which wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our fantastic team, and of course our equally fantastic patients.
