Dr Asif Chatoo is a dentist, specialist orthodontist, trainer and pioneer in the fields of lingual braces and digital dentistry. After qualifying in dentistry from King’s College in 1993, Asif worked in general practice before gaining a Masters degree in orthodontics and a specialist membership diploma from the Royal College of Surgeons (MOrth) and going on to train in the lingual technique in Paris.
Asif believes in providing the level of care he would want for his own family. He founded The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic, the first UK practice dedicated to lingual orthodontics, to provide a holistic approach to treatment in a wonderful setting. Our patients regularly comment on how at home they feel in the practice and how at ease they feel with him taking care of their braces.
