About Sunshine Coast Orthodontics

An introduction to Dr Lesley Short and the Noosa Clinic
Our doctors can help you with Invisalign treatments in Sunshine Coast

Dr Lesley Short loves her work and she loves making people feel better about themselves. She is the mother of three grown children who have all had orthodontic treatment. With over 20 years experience as a specialist Orthodontist including teaching in Australia, the US and Canada.   She practised orthodontics for 12 years in Macquarie St Sydney with a branch practice in Noosaville.

In 2003,  Lesley took  a position teaching orthodontics to graduate students in one of the Canada’s leading Universities, the University of Western Ontario. During her time there, she was an external examiner for postgraduate students at the University of Toronto and New York University. Lesley also reviewed articles for the American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics.  The US are widely recognised as the inventors and leaders in modern orthodontics and Lesley gained experience in techniques that can reduce treatment time with braces to as low as 8 months, that is a reduction of 66% compared to regular treatment which takes about 2 years.

More recently, Lesley returned to Australia to set up her clinic in Noosa and use these techniques for the benefit of people on the Sunshine Coast and South-East Queensland.

Dr Short also operates a clinic in Rockhampton which can be more convenient for people who live in the Capricorn Coast and  Central Highlands.
