Celebrating 60 years of unparalleled quality and caring service

Our specialists are leaders in the field of orthodontics

It is the passion and expertise of our orthodontists that creates a unique experience for our patients at our nine practices across South Australia. Many of our orthodontists have several decades of experience that allows them to expertly diagnose and treat any orthodontic issue with the highest level of professional care.


We have treated over 60,000 patients and have established a reputation as the leading orthodontic provider in South Australia

Our core values are focused on providing a caring environment for our patients where each person is treated as an individual by one of our respected and highly skilled specialists.

We can provide treatment for patients of all ages with early intervention, adolescent treatment and treatment for adults. We know that the beginning of your orthodontic treatment can be daunting, so we will do everything in our power to help you understand your treatment and feel comfortable.

More about our Orthodontists

Smart Orthodontics was one of the first orthodontic practices in South Australia and has been helping patients with high quality orthodontic treatment since 1956. Drs Lawrie Smart and Des McKinnon created our practice with a philosophy of providing caring and high quality orthodontics. They were constantly assessing new approaches and methods of treatment, and in subsequent years were joined by Dr Grave, Dr Gallagher, Dr Reichstein, Dr Salmon and Dr Curl. At Smart Orthodontics, the orthodontists now proudly continue to provide innovative and effective orthodontic care.

Our Convenient Locations

Our centrally located North Terrace practice is our principle location, where we are able to host a full range of X-ray and laboratory services.  We have three established suburban locations in addition to our rural practices.

Smart Orthodontics has six decades of experience working with families in rural areas. Commencing in Port Lincoln and Port Pirie, we now have five rural locations in South Australia to help provide the wider community with the orthodontic care they need.
