About Us

We are Chesterfield’s only practice wholly devoted to the speciality of Orthodontics. In these pages, you can find out more about our practice and about the art of straightening teeth with appliances (braces).

The practice was established in 1995. In 2005 we moved to our new premises in the town centre. This accessible location gives us a modern and comfortable environment to treat our patients, with the emphasis on a relaxed but professional service.

Our aim is always to provide a high standard of orthodontic treatment using a range of modern appliances – a “Smile by Design”.


Our practice was set up by Phil Williams, a specialist of over 30 years experience in 1995. He has since established an enviable reputation for providing high quality orthodontic treatment in a relaxed and friendly manner.

When we opened our new premises, Phil teamed up with Nick Rodick to expand the practice and create the busy orthodontic referral centre that we are now. Nick has recently retired from full-time practice, but still works for us from time to time as needed. Meanwhile, we have been joined by Ajay. Ajay mainly works Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

We treat patients on referral from other dentists in the North Derbyshire region. Our NHS contract allows us to treat children and students under the age of 19 years. We welcome adult patients on a private basis.
