The Orthodontic & Aesthetics Clinic
74 Suffolk Road, Cheltenham
Dr Janet Whitehead
After qualifying as a dentist from Guy’s Hospital, Janet pursued her interest in surgery, holding posts in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Guy’s Hospital and for six years at Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals, where she gained valuable experience in pathology and orthognathic (jaw) surgery.
She obtained her Fellowship in Dental Surgery both from the Royal College or Surgeons of London and Edinburgh before entering on a three year full time postgraduate orthdontic training programme at the Eastman Dental Hospital, London. After successfully completing the rigorous examinations and clinic presentations, she was awarded qualification as a Specialist Orthodontist and admission to the Specialist Orthodontist Register of the General Dental Council.
Returning to Gloucestershire, she held orthodontic posts at Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals, continuing her interest in surgery, treating the more complex orthodontic cases and those preparing for orthognathic surgery.
For the last 20 years Janet has concentrated on her orthodontic practice at 74 Suffolk Road in Cheltenham, holding a successful, busy NHS orthodontic contract. After the restructuring of orthodontic services in Gloucestershire she now enjoys being able to devote her time to her private patients, her priority being to provide a calm, relaxed and friendly experience in the elegant setting of Suffolk Road.
Away from the practice, being a keen gardener and having a collection of Labradors keeps her busy and appreciative of our beautiful countryside around Gloucestershire.
