Simply Orthodontics had its humble beginnings in a small two chair practice on the corner of Sunshine Ave and Melton Hwy, Taylors Lakes, where Dr. Skilton and his wife, Krystel, spent many nights contemplating the ins and outs of running their own practice. Years later, luck was on their side when a unique opportunity presented itself and the practice moved to its current purpose-built rooms on Overton Lea Blvd, Sydenham.
After many years of visiting the practice, Dr. Jason Yap joined Simply Orthodontics as a partner in 2014, bringing his expertise to our patients.
Our practice family has grown in numbers on the good faith and support of our staff, current patients and our Simply alumni. We constantly strive to be on the forefront of orthodontic technologies to maintain our quality service for patients, so attending national and international conferences as part of our continuing education is integral.
Dr. Skilton and Dr. Yap have always believed that Orthodontics should be easily accessible for everyone and this is reflected in our appointment scheduling and payment terms where the practices tries its best to accommodate all its patients.
Simply Orthodontics is also a strong supporter of Give A Smile™, the charitable arm of the Australasian Orthodontic Society (ASO), where a specialist orthodontist takes on a public system patient to be treated in their private practice on a pro bono basis. Strong community ties are also important to Simply and we are the proud supporters of various community events and sporting clubs including the Taylors Lakes Football Club and Diggers Rest Bulla Village Cricket Club.
