Dr Peter Miles Orthodontist Caloundra, Sunshine Coast
Dr Peter Miles understands that in a changing world with new technology, techniques and innovations, what one learned at University may not be the most efficient information for our modern-day world.

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that utilises clear aligner trays in place of conventional metal braces. At Newwave Orthodontics, we understand that many adults avoid undergoing orthodontic care due to needing a metal free smile for work (such as models, TV presenters). Whatever your reason, we proudly offer Invisalign so you can gain the care you need without sacrificing your lifestyle!
