Riccarda Kane

BDS LDS RCS (Eng) FDS RCPS (Glas) MOrth RCS (Edin) MSc

Riccarda Kane is a Specialist Orthodontist with many years of experience in treating both adults and children. In recent years she has become very interested in providing the most discreet braces possible, using Lingual Orthodontics (or behind the teeth braces). She believes that Lingual Orthodontics will be the most widely used and popular form of Orthodontics in the near future for those undergoing private care.

Having graduated from University College Hospital Dental School London (UK) in 1989 and obtaining her postgraduate qualifications at Guy's and The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 1997, she is on the General Dental Council specialist list for Orthodontics (GDC registration number 64202) and is a member of the British Orthodontic Society and British Lingual Orthodontic Society.

She has worked in many areas of dentistry including the maxillo-facial departments of Great Ormond Street and Kent and Canterbury Hospital, as well as in general dental practice and the Community Dental Service looking after children with special needs. Following qualification as a Specialist Orthodontist, the Birchington Orthodontic Practice was opened in 1999.

Riccarda is supported by a small team, who have worked at Birchington Orthodontic Practice since it opened, giving the practice great stability and a friendly atmosphere.
