Michelle Connelly
Manager / GDC No. 112890

Our Practice Manager, Michelle, is a dynamic member of the team and has been with us since we opened in 2017. She always has a smile on her face and has the most infectious laugh which, we can pretty much guarantee, you will hear during your visit! Our Michelle has a heart of gold and, when she's not in the practice, she volunteers at local food banks and spends time with her wee furry friend.
Cherie Fitzsimmons
Head Receptionist / GDC No. 130271
Cherie has been a hardworking member of the team here at East End Orthodontics since 2017. She has been known to forget that she has a cup of tea waiting for her because she's been working so hard! Cherie loves to spend time with her family and children in her summerhouse. She loves a good TV Box Set so, if you’re looking for a recommendation, be sure to ask her for one when you visit the practice!
Lauren Anderson
Dental nurse / GDC No. 192262
Lauren is a mum to two small children and her caring and gentle nature radiates while she is in the practice. Only one thing that can get to Lauren, and that’s Colins annoying whistling which can often be heard throughout the practice. She has been part of the team here at East End Orthodontics since 2018 and has been registered with the General Dental Council since 2010.
Lucy Partridge
Treatment Co-ordinator / GDC No. 245402
Lucy has been a registered Dental Nurse with the GDC since 2013 and joined the team here at East End Orthodontics in 2018. Lucy's middle name should be ‘Joy’ as she brings so much to our working day. Our bubbly, blonde Lucy loves seeing patients leave with their new-found confidence once they have finished their treatment.
Stacey Kenney
Dental nurse / GDC No. 249022
Stacey has been with us since 2019 and is a dedicated member of the team with a friendly approach. When she isn’t in the practice, Stacey likes to keep fit, and enjoys spending time with her young son.
Kimberly Lamont
Treatment Co-ordinator / GDC No. 222226
Kimberly has been with us here at East End Orthodontics since 2020. She is a hands-on member of the team and, if you need a little comfort during treatment, she will offer you her hand to hold on to. Kimberly loves travelling, especially to America, and spending time with her family.
All our staff are registered with the General Dental Council, the organisation which regulates the dental profession in the UK, and we all participate in regular continuing professional development in order to keep our practice up-to-date. You can visit the General Dental Council website.

The Practice

Our Specialist Orthodontists, Janet and Colin, had worked together for over ten years as associates in a Specialist Orthodontic practice in Paisley.

In 2017, an opportunity became available to open a brand new clinic in the east end of Glasgow. Having scouted the area, Janet and Colin noted that, although there were many general dental clinics, there were no local specialist orthodontic practices in the neighbourhood. The nearest one was located in Glasgow City Centre.

The building was a blank canvas, which gave Janet and Colin the chance to take the project from concept through to execution, designing the bespoke practice from the floor up.
Following lots of planning with architects, builders, lawyers and banks, East End Orthodontics opened its doors for the first time in May 2017.

The practice is clean, sleek and, for your comfort, completely air conditioned. It is fully digital, including radiography, and we have a state of the art sterilisation facility. We have recently invested in a pioneering iTero 3D digital scanner, which virtually eliminates the need to take putty impressions, dramatically speeding up workflow. It also allows you to take a sneak peak at what your new improved smile will look like at the end of your treatment.

At East End Orthodontics, we create beautiful, healthy smiles for our patients in a practice we are proud of.
