Dr Athyr Al-Killidar

BDS (LON) BSC (LON)

Orthodontics, Cosmetic Dentistry, Dental Implants

Director / GDC No. 72575

Athyr graduated from United Medical & Dental Schools of Guy’s & St Thomas’ in 1996. He is one of the few dentists in the UK who has extensive experience in orthodontics, dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and occlusion.

He is experienced with traditional types of orthodontic appliances but is especially interested in the more ‘discreet’ options such as Invisalign and lingual braces.

His treatment planning is based on facial profile, and the establishment of a healthy relationship between the teeth, joints and facial muscles.

Technology is an important part of the treatment planning process, with a computerised assessment of the face and underlying skeletal structure, and predictions of facial profile following treatment, in addition to smile assessment.

Dr Al-Killidar diagnoses and treats many patients referred for cosmetic smile makeovers, missing teeth,  jaw joint problems, and related disorders including headaches, neck aches, ear symptoms, excess tooth wear, tooth clenching and grinding.

He is also involved in sleep medicine through the use of Mandibular Advancement Appliances that maintain airway latency during sleep and help reduce snoring and sleep apnoea.

He is involved in research, lectures to various groups and his professional memberships include the British Dental Association, British Orthodontic Society, ADAPT, and the British Society for the Study of Craniomandibular Disorders.

This combined with his caring and meticulous approach to treatment has enhanced his reputation amongst his professional colleagues and patients alike.
