Dr Joseph Bleakley

Dr Bleakley lived and attended school on the Gold Coast. Joe graduated as a Dentist (BDSc) from the University of Queensland and worked in general dental practice for ten years, both in Australia and overseas. Joe successfully completed his Masters degree in Orthodontics (MDSc) at the University of Sydney and also completed examinations to become a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (FRACDS). Joe has also taught Undergraduate Dental Students and Postgraduate Orthodontic Students (training orthodontists) at the University of Sydney.

In recent times Joe has remained very active in the educational environment. He has provided presentations at numerous specialist orthodontist conferences throughout Australia.

Joe has been granted and maintains membership in numerous Australian and International Dental and Orthodontic Societies.

Joe enjoys fishing and spending time with family. Joe is also an avid fan of Rugby Union.

Dr Scott McNab

Dr Scott McNab graduated from the University of Queensland Dental School with First Class Honours in 1991. After several years working as a dentist, Scott returned to the University of Queensland in 1996 to begin his postgraduate training in orthodontics. Upon graduation in 1998, worked as an orthodontist in the UK for several years. On returning to Australia, Scott worked in private orthodontic practice until 2009. After a decade working as an orthodontist, Scott’s desire for learning led him back to university for another three years of full-time study to obtain the degree of Doctor of Clinical Dentistry in Dento-maxillofacial Radiology.

Scott holds dual specialist registration with the Dental Board of Australia in Orthodontics and Dento-maxillofacial Radiology and works in both fields. He is particularly interested in the application of three-dimensional imaging in orthodontics and in the ongoing research into temporomandibular joint disorders. Scott has published internationally in both the American Journal of Orthodontics and DentofacialOrthopedics and the Angle Orthodontist. Scott continues to lecture dental students at the University of Queensland Dental School. He is a member of the Australian Society of Orthodontists and the Australian Dental Association and is an Invisalign accredited orthodontist.

Scott’s hobbies have been placed on hold until his three children leave home. Life before children may have contained golf, surfing and trips to the footy. Life after children will be less tiring.

The GCO Difference

Our Commitment To You

At Gold Coast Orthodontists we treat every patient with care and respect. At your initial appointment one of our fully qualified specialist orthodontists will examine you or your child and determine the best possible treatment and provide you with a personalised, tailored treatment plan that will deliver a healthy, smile with style.

We will always take as much time as needed at each visit to ensure treatment progresses as planned and you or your child gets the perfect smile.

Our Qualifications

Dr Joseph Bleakley, DrNida Khan and Dr Scott McNab are fully qualified specialist orthodontists.

Orthodontists are dentists who have undergone further training (an extra three years full-time) at a recognised university. This means you or your child will be treated by leading experts in the field of orthodontics.

Latest Technology and Techniques

Gold Coast Orthodontists keep up to date with the latest technology in Orthodontics and deliver quality, evidence based treatment to all of our patients.

We use an indirect method when applying braces which is less invasive and quicker than the direct method approach.

There are many fad type treatments available that “claim” to make things faster however, to date, we have not seen any clinical evidence to support these claims.

Private Treatment Rooms

Unlike many orthodontic practices that have a “hair salon” set up Gold Coast Orthodontists recognise that patients prefer privacy so that they can feel comfortable when undergoing treatment.  All of our practices offer private treatment rooms for our patients to feel comfortable all the time.

Flexible, interest-free plans

We understand that whilst everyone wants straight teeth and a beautiful smile, it can be a worry about affordability.

To help you or your child get the smile you want, we offer flexible, interest-free payment plans over a period of time to suit your budget!

Infection Control

Gold Coast Orthodontists take pride in the way we treat our patients. That includes the work we do behind the scenes.

All instruments are sterilised and cleaned according to the Australian Dental Association’s guidelines. Strict infection control measures are implemented daily to prevent cross infection so you and your child can feel safe when you are in our clinic.

Convenience

We are located at three convenient shopping centers on the Gold Coast, all offering ample parking.

Our locations are:

  • Robina
  • Westfield Helensvale
  • Upper Coomera
