Dr David Heads
Specialist Orthodontist (GDC No. 113619)
David graduated from Newcastle University in 2007 and was awarded with the undergraduate radiology prize. Following graduation, he gained a broad range of experience in general dental practice, community dentistry and maxillofacial surgery. He was awarded the Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties in 2009.
David then took a year out to work in the dental hospital in Melbourne, Australia. This provided experience working in emergency dentistry in another healthcare system, while exploring this vibrant city. Following this, David spent time travelling through Australia, New Zealand and India.
On returning to the UK, David was selected for orthodontic specialist training at Birmingham Dental Hospital. During this time, David gave regional presentations, national poster presentations and was published in national journals.
David’s specialty involves straightening teeth and correction of the bite, with the aim of improving aesthetics and function. His specialist orthodontic training and further education allows him to use the orthodontic technique most suited to the individual and he always treats his patients in a calm way. David’s highlight is always the effects his treatment has for his patients!
Outside of work, David spends his spare time with his young family. When possible, he likes to ski and is looking forward to rediscovering his love of travelling.
