Meet The Team

All services are provided by a team of orthodontists and general dentists who are committed to providing our patients in Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Leduc, Red Deer, and Langley with orthodontic care that leaves them with a healthy, straight smile.

Dr. A.M. Hussain

Biochemistry, M.Sc., D.D.S., F.R.C.D., centres his approach to orthodontic treatment on early preventative treatment and complete facial enhancement.

He’s been focused on practicing orthodontics ever since, and moved to Edmonton to do just that.
