Dr Peter Miles
“One of my biggest points of difference is my research and evidence based approach. There is no other orthodontist in private practice in Australia who has done the research that I do which guides my clinical practice. In fact, there are barely any worldwide.”
“I have over 45 publications (and also an invite video.) and one of my articles was the 2016 feature article in the most prestigious orthodontic journal; the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.”
