Dr Vandana Katyal is a certified Specialist Orthodontist. She is highly experienced in delivering the latest, most efficient and most comfortable invisible dental orthodontic treatments. She is also Head Lecturer for The Digital Orthodontic College (a subsidiary of Best Orthodontic Seminars & Sessions RTO).

In 2014 Dr Katyal started treating her adult and teen patient with clear aligners when it was considered to be quite a difficult technique. The patients loved it and the results were so impressive that in 2017 Dr Katyal wrote a book “Love is All you need and a Good Orthodontist” for her patients to share her initial experiences with clear aligners. In the same year, Dr Katyal was acclaimed as being in the Top 1% of Invisalign providers within Australia. She is also an Elite Provider of Spark Clear Aligners and has completed over 1000 cases of clear aligner treatments for patients varying from ages 6 to 85 years!

Today Dr Katyal continues to deliver opinions, diagnosis and care via her virtual orthodontic consultancy.  She leads the industry by teaching, coaching, partnering and mentoring dentists as well as orthodontists to deliver excellence in their orthodontic treatments using clear aligner techniques.
