Dr. Latika is an Orthodontics (Braces) specialist, and an expert in smile correction. She believes that age is no bar for correction of one’s smile. Initially trained as a general dentist from one of the premium institutes in the country, her passion to make a difference to a person’s confidence by improving their smile made her take up Orthodontics as a specialisation.
She believes that the scope of Orthodontics goes beyond just correction of position of teeth. Orthodontics and Dentofacial orthopaedics also encompasses early interception of problems like poor oral habits like mouth breathing, thumb sucking , tongue thrusting etc, correction of faulty growth patterns of jaws and providing a healthy oral environment for good growth of jaws and muscles and better positioning of teeth.
Her constant endeavor to provide individualised treatment options to patients lead her to train in a variety of braces like metal, ceramic, self-ligating braces to name a few. In order to make Orthodontic corrections available to her aesthetically conscious adult patients, she has expanded her Orthodontic knowledge with Certified courses in Invisible/ Lingual braces and Aligners specially Invisalign treatment. To satisfy her passion for aesthetics, Dr Latika Dhawan has trained in Cosmetic dentistry, metal free ceramic crowns, dental veneers and cosmetic fillings.
