Looking after your patients is important to us

We will ensure the most experienced orthodontists and team – led by Dr. Orton-Gibbs who is a consultant trained specialist orthodontist.

Fully informed and consulted

we have been first or amongst the first in the UK to offer Invisalign, lingual appliances, digital photography and now AcceleDent to speed up any type of treatment

Best of new technology

we like to work closely with referring practitioners, we provide written reports with copies of radiographs and photos before and after treatment for all patients (and updates during treatment)

Facial Aesthetics

have been key at Walpole – The Orthodontic Specialists since the late 70s -the combination of functional appliances and low extraction rates (premolars 10% – mainly adults) ensure lip support is maintained or enhanced where needed.

Micro cosmetics

we assess and change gum show and levels, reshaping teeth where needed to establish golden proportions.

Reliable results

Dr. Orton-Gibbs was ranked amongst the highest scoring consultants in an audit of 6 consecutive cases. We have a 98% success rate with functional appliances (CTBs) compared to 68% success rate by consultants in a published paper (please ask for details of this audit)


as well as in-house training, Dr. Orton-Gibbs continues to publish papers in scientific journals, to teach on the London post-graduate training programme and lecture to dentists and orthodontists both nationally and internationally

    My association with Walpole dates back to 1972 and I have referred my patients for thirty-five years. My first thought when building up a relationship with any practice to which I refer is to say "Is this place to which I would happily send my own family?" As far as Walpole is concerned this is definitely the case. Sharon Orton-Gibbs, David Slattery and their extremely able team ensure that, from one's first contact with the front desk and the general administration of the practice to their communication with me as the referring dentist, the highest standards are maintained. Their documentation of orthodontic cases and their communication with us is never less than excellent, and the way they work with us and our Hygienists as a team to ensure the best long term result, typifies everything that a good relationship between two practices should be.

    I have found Walpole Specialists impressive on many levels. The practice staff are friendly but professional and always greet my daughter and me with a smile. Phone calls are answered or returned promptly and all administration is dealt with effectively. The 'how can I help' attitude of the staff and attention to detail is particularly noteworthy. Overall the practice environment is pleasant and relaxed. I am very impressed with the portfolio of patient outcomes that Sharon has achieved, in my view, Sharon's philosophy of early intervention to use growth potential to the maximum works well in her hands for 2 reasons. Firstly because of her outstanding clinical skills and use of modern techniques but also because of the total support her staff have in motivating patients. The strongest recommendation I can give is that I have referred my own family despite a round trip of 160 miles for each appointment, the results of treatment are more than worth it.

    When our patients require fixed braces, we refer them to Walpole Orthodontic Practice, based in Surbiton, Surrey. The level of care and expertise that Dr Sharon Orton-Gibbs & her team provide is simply the best! We highly regard them for their friendly, caring team & above all, the 5 star orthodontic treatment and customer service they provide. I feel privileged to have such a business affiliation with Dr Orton-Gibbs & the wonderful team at Walpole orthodontics

The Orthodontic Specialists

Forty years at the forefront of orthodontics has made Walpole the leading name in teeth straightening and cosmetic smiles. So why would you send your patients anywhere else?

All treatments


Invisalign consists of a series of clear mouthpieces placed over the teeth, thus avoiding fixed braces completely whilst giving your patients a perfect smile. We were the first independent orthodontist to offer Invisalign treatment in the UK.


Dr. Orton-Gibbs is the first UK orthodontist to offer AcceleDent, an exciting new technology which reduces treatment time by 30-50%. We are seeing great results and are very happy to offer the AcceleDent device to our patients.

Jaw Surgery

Our Specialist Orthodontists are highly experienced surgeons who are able to perform even the most difficult of jaw surgeries. If your patient desires or requires a resized or repositioned jawline, our specialists can tailor them a safe, highly effective and accelerated treatment.

More Than Straight Teeth

We want to give your patients the best smile possible. So we don’t just straighten teeth, we make sure that they are positioned to perfectly compliment a patient's facial structure and individual style.
