Dr Marc Mortiboys
Clinical Director/Owner, BDS (Guy's) 1986GDC registration number: 61939
Marc has been involved in Dentistry since 1982 and has been passionate about developing a more holistic/integrative approach to Dental Care ever since qualifying in 1987. His eclectic approach to dentistry is a culmination of personal experiences with integrative medicine to help with his Jaw Joint/Migraine issues, intestinal illness from tropical travel, and Hypnotherapy to help with exam nerves, to name a few. His insight into healing took a quantum leap after a powerful near death experience in the Far-East after a serious Typhoid infection in 1990 and spending time with Shamen in the Sumatran jungles.
His goal via establishing a Special Dental and Health Centre of Excellence is to deliver Dental and Whole Body Care with a Special Kind of Magic by addressing the Trinity of Mind, Body and Spirit. He also aims to inspire people to take back control of their Oral and General Health through education and guidance to the Truth that is out there and easy to access in this modern time via the internet.
Early on in his career, Marc set up the The Dental Confidence Centre in Belgravia and featured on ITV. The UK's first designated centre to help people overcome their fear of the Dentist, using Hygnotherapy, Hypnohealing and NLP tools, which was way ahead of its time. Marc's enthusiasm and passion for his profession knows no limit and he has been on numerous radio shows as well as on Channel 5 as a Dental Expert. Marc has also been an advisor to Chelsea FC.
Marc's main focus clinically is holistic smile and bite transformation using mainly Invisalign as well as continuing maintenance programmes for his large dental patient following.

- Your children or grandchildren show signs of a less than ideal facial growth pattern (Chin too far back or forward, snoring, regular colds and allergies, breathing difficulties, lisping, or lack of energy). By the way, children are usually Sia's biggest fans.
