About Dr Bal Nandra

Dr Bal Nandra - bal bannerv2

Dr Bal is a UK registered Specialist Orthodontist. She is one of the few dentists awarded a Specialist in Orthodontics after completing a 3-year postgraduate orthodontic training in Western Sussex Hospital Trust and awarded a Master’s in Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics from the prestigious UCL Eastman Dental Institute in London.

Additionally, she was awarded her membership with the Royal College of Surgeons in England (M.Orth). She is an active member of the British Orthodontic Society, the British Lingual Orthodontic Society and American Orthodontic Society.

Dr Bal is the founder and secretary of The Orthodontic Study Club (OSC) in Central London, where she brings together orthodontists, to maintain high standards of orthodontics, keep up to date with research and inspire newly qualified orthodontists.

Dr Bal has a unique and modern eye for detail, combining the management of facial proportions and teeth, and relating the structures of the face to the smile aesthetics. Her specialist areas include:

  • Fixed orthodontics for adults and children,
  • early interceptive orthodontics for children,
  • Invisalign for adults
  • Invisalign for teens
  • Invisalign first for children,
  • lingual (behind the teeth) braces
  • orthognathic treatment for more complex cases
  • and multidisciplinary treatment, working with our other specialists and dental experts.

Dr Bal has a passion and modern approach for early management of paediatric (children’s) malocclusion and provides “interceptive” treatment, which are dental procedures recommended for children ages between 7 to 10 years old. Dr Bal believes that early orthodontic treatment is important if the child’s bite is not right and is in the child’s best interest if planned and implemented at the right dental developmental stage. Use of aligners allows treatment of children without brackets and wires is comfortable, affordable and allows children and teenagers to gain confidence in their smile.

Dr Bal attends national and international congresses regularly, keeping up to date with the latest evidence in Orthodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry. She has published scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, presented research in international conferences in Australia, USA and Europe, and has been awarded several prizes for her work in Dentistry.

Prior to her specialist orthodontic role, Dr Bal has held hospital appointments as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, where she gained experience in complex orthognathic surgery, wisdom tooth surgery assisting in major cancer and trauma surgeries. She has also spent some time researching in the the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Jacksonville, Florida USA.

In her spare time she enjoys travelling, horse riding and reading.
