Here at Simply Orthodontics, our highly trained and professional orthodontists, Dr Jonathan Skilton and Dr Jason Yap, take a modern and personalised approach towards assisting our patients to achieve their orthodontic goals. Providing specialised orthodontic treatment for children, teens and adults, our team has the orthodontic experience to handle even the most complex of cases.

The Simply Orthodontic family is committed to creating long-lasting and meaningful relationships with each and every one of our patients and the surrounding community. Whether inviting our patients in for our annual Simply Movie nights or providing rewards through our Brace Bucks program we like getting to know our patients and their families. Ensuring we are doing everything we possibly can to meet their individual needs.

Our facility

Conveniently located in Melbourne’s western suburb of Sydenham, we service patients from right across Victoria including Caroline Springs. Walk into either of our practices and you are greeted by our friendly scheduling coordinators who ensure our schedules run like clockwork. Our team understands that your time is precious and we strive to run on time every time.

Our offices have recently been remodelled and are equipped with well-maintained equipment held to the highest sanitation standards. With our patients being our number one priority, we follow a stringent infection control protocol in everything we do.

You are free to sit back and relax in the comfort of our waiting room whilst you wait for your turn to see one of our orthodontists.

Planning your treatment

At Simply Orthodontics, we use the very latest in diagnostic technology to plan out your orthodontic treatment.

Prior to commencing orthodontic treatment, our team will take diagnostic records to ensure you are receiving the best possible orthodontic treatment that suits your needs. These records consist of:

  • Digital photographs
  • Digital x-rays
  • Non-invasive digital 3D scan of your mouth

We find that digital records are the most effective way of planning and tracking your treatment, allowing us to view records across any of the Simply Orthodontic locations at any time. The digital technology also allows for quick and seamless communication with your general dentist or any other dental specialist to ensure you are receiving the very best treatment.

Our practices are also home to the unique Cadent iTero mouth scanner. In fact, we are proudly the first orthodontic practice in Victoria to use the iTero scanner routinely for all diagnostic records. Using this technology your orthodontist is able to create a three-dimensional scan of your mouth which can be manipulated to view all aspects of your bite, enhancing the diagnostic process.

Additionally, we use the iTero scanner for all Invisalign treatment scans; this allows us to dramatically reduce the standard wait time on Clincheck returns as well as delivery of your aligners.

Your first visit

During your first visit to our practice our team strives to provide an enjoyable experience where we are able to discuss your orthodontic concerns in a friendly and private environment. Your first appointment will be highly informative, yet informal, during this time we encourage you to ask as many questions as you like and discuss any concerns you may have.

We understand that during your initial appointment there can sometimes be a wealth of information for you to digest and you may wish to do so at a later date. Your orthodontist will provide you with a treatment plan and report, outlining the discussed recommended treatment options. Using this detailed plan you will be able to review the information you have been presented at your initial consultation at your own convenience.

Both Dr Skilton and Dr Yap are firm believers in a multidisciplinary approach and will prepare a thorough report to be forwarded to your dentist, making them aware of your orthodontic needs and concerns, as well as the proposed recommendation for treatment. In doing this we are able to ensure that you receive the best overall oral health care.
