About us

We are Chesterfield’s largest 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 a stone’s throw from 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. We also have onsite parking at the front of the building.

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. He established an enviable reputation for providing high quality orthodontic treatment in a relaxed and friendly manner.

Chesterfield Orthodontics was acquired in 2019 by two of the region’s most highly-regarded Orthodontists – Jonathan O’Dwyer and David Tinsley. They have worked at Chesterfield Royal Hospital for the last 20 years and completed their Orthodontic Specialist Training there in 2003. Both have a long commitment to orthodontics in the local area, having worked at the Orthodontic Centre on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield for over 15 years.

We treat patients on referral from other dentists in the North Derbyshire region. Our NHS contract allows us to treat children under the age of 18 years. We welcome adult patients on a private basis

Patients benefit from a cool glassy interior with light, airy waiting rooms and reception area. The treatment rooms are modern and hygienic, and there is air conditioning throughout these areas. Our practice facilities allow us to comply fully with new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), for further information please see our Privacy Policy which can be found under the Downloads tab.



More recently, the practice has undergone an extensive renovation program and is now a state-of-the-art orthodontic practice. We have extended our building to add an extra surgery along with increasing the size of the waiting rooms. Together with our fantastic team, it means we are able to offer a relaxed yet professional environment for providing the best possible care to our patients

Digital Technology

We are fully computerised (and so “paper-free”) with the latest and best in digital X-Ray processing and we are able to comply with all of the many requirements set out by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Here at Chesterfield Orthodontics we use the TRIOS intra-oral scanner to create accurate 3D digital images of your teeth and mouth, without the use of traditional impression taking.  We find that our patients much prefer this process as it is much less invasive and much quicker, and helps our more anxious patients to feel much more comfortable. It also entirely removes the almost choking sensation that traditional impression taking can cause for our patients who suffer with a sensitive gag reflex.
