After earning his degree with honours, Dr Miles chose to continue his education and became a registered orthodontist through the University of Pittsburgh. His continued education pushed him to finish first in his class with a Certificate of Orthodontics and Masters of Dental Science.

• Certified by the Australian Orthodontic board
Dr Miles is continuously learning to further his knowledge of orthodontics and the future of orthodontic practices. He teaches future orthodontics to a range of national and international colleges including the University of Queensland, the University of Sydney and Seton Hill University in the USA.
As a jetsetter, Dr Miles has been known to lecture at, and attend, lectures all around the world and is known for his orthodontic textbook titled Evidence Based Clinical Orthodontics amongst other published research.
When he is not practicing orthodontics, learning, or passing on his knowledge to others, Dr Miles can be found spending time with his family and staying fit and healthy.

What orthodontic treatments are available at Newwave Orthodontics?
At Newwave Orthodontics here on the Sunshine Coast, we have a range of different orthodontic treatments available for patients looking to restore aesthetics and functionality to their smile. Our solutions are individually tailored to suit the uniqueness of our patients’ smiles.
Invisalign is an option that may be suitable for both teens and adults. This treatment is virtually invisible. It uses a series of removable trays to move your teeth over time. Unfortunately this treatment is not always suitable for all patients. Book an Invisalign consultation for more information.
NewWave Express is a short-term orthodontic treatment for less complex orthodontic cases. The treatment aligns the teeth over 6-9 months and has a reduced cost. Like Invisalign, NewWave express is only suitable for less complex cases. For more information, book a consultation with our team.
Lingual braces are similar to traditional metal braces except they are fixed to the inside of your smile. Lingual braces are a popular option for adults as they are hidden. This means that they are almost completely unnoticeable and they can resolve the same concerns as traditional braces.
Traditional braces use brackets and wires which are fixed to the teeth. They are designed from metal materials and work by exerting a gentle pressure over a long period of time to reposition the alignment of the bite and teeth.
