Ian started his path into orthodontics with a biochemistry degree from Dundee University. He then studied dentistry at King’s College London where he was awarded three prizes, one of which included the prestigious Jelf Medal.
Ian honed his skills in dentistry by working in private practice and in hospitals treating complex multidisciplinary cases using the latest dental techniques and instruments. It was during this time that he was awarded his diploma in Membership of the Joint Dental Faculties of The Royal College of Surgeons of England and published in orthodontic literature.
Having built up his skillset in general dentistry, Ian decided he wanted a new challenge, and as he had a keen interest in orthodontics, he entered specialist training at the Royal London Hospital and Southend Hospital NHS. During his three-year training, Ian gained a keen interest in oral health. This led him to form a research team comparing the effectiveness of manual versus electric tooth brushing in orthodontic patients, which had the prestigious honour of being sponsored by Colgate.
Ian was also awarded his Master’s in Clinical Dentistry and Membership in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Ian’s clinical areas of interest include Invisalign and lingual orthodontics. He also provides both metal and clear (ceramic) braces as well as Damon braces.
Dr Ian Arad is a passionate orthodontist and prides himself on providing excellent orthodontic treatment and personalised care. He is meticulous in his approach to treatment and works hard to give patients their desired outcome. He works both in private practice and the NHS.
Ian was inspired to become an orthodontist, because of the way in which the craft and skill involved can transform lives. He firmly believes that it is not just people’s smiles that are enhanced, but also their confidence and self-esteem. He feels very privileged to be able to make a difference and to be a part of the OSDH team.
While progressing on his career pathway, Ian has also managed to enjoy a wide range of other activities. His sporting pursuits include football, fencing and, of course, golf. He takes great delight in trying new restaurants and enjoys jetting off to different countries to enjoy their cuisine and culture.
