Our Orthodontists

Dr Max Kazemi

Max M Kazemi DDS (Gothenburg, Sweden) 1992, M Orth (Eastman, Sweden) 2001, GDC No: 78949, is the Principal/Partner Orthodontist Specialist at New Smile Orthodontics (Previously known as Tan & Kazemi Orthodontic Practice).

Max graduated as a dentist in 1992 and worked for over 6 years as a general dentist and head of a community dental clinic in Sweden before starting the postgraduate program in orthodontics in 1998. He graduated in 2001 from Eastman Dental Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, as a specialist orthodontist and has since treated a wide range of patients of all ages and complexities. Max has been involved in the education of orthodontic therapists at the Eastman Teaching Institute in Stockholm.

Max is interested in dentofacial orthopedics and prefers early referrals for interceptive treatments to stop progression of bite anomalies before they get worse or untreatable with conventional orthodontics.

Max prides himself on having worked with one of the most eminent orthodontic clinicians in the UK and Europe, for some years in Harley Street, London. After becoming a Certified Invisalign Provider in 2006, Max has treated many adults and children successfully with this technique.

When not straightening teeth Max enjoys going to the gym and swimming, listening to music and playing guitar. He speaks a few languages and likes to learn more

Our Practice


Our practice is designed to be warm and welcoming. We are not a large, impersonal mega clinic where you may feel like you are treated as
a number, nor a corporate medical facility managed by people from a non-medical background. We strive to provide exceptional, personalised
orthodontic care. We have recently renovated our premises and taken over adjoining office space, with the aim of making the practice an
even more comfortable environment for our patients.

Why choose us?

Specialist Orthodontists

We believe it is important to be treated by an experienced,
specialist orthodontist. Both Dr Kazemi and Dr Dhillon have
undertaken years of additional study at university, treating
highly complex cases under experienced supervision, before
their expertise was recognised by their peers, examiners
and regulatory bodies as at specialist level. Your dentist may
carry out treatments for teeth straightening which they are
capable of, but creating the perfect new smile for you is a
job for a specialist.

Flexible Treatment


We will offer you a choice of treatments
and help you best understand these options. That way you
can make an informed choice leading to the best possible
outcomes. Our orthodontists are experienced with a variety
of systems to straighten your teeth – it’s your choice.
See our treatments page to learn more.

Value for Money

We will only propose treatments that we are confident have worthwhile and long standing benefit. We offer flexible payment options. See our Fees page for further details.

For All Ages

Many people hold the misconception that orthodontic
care is only available or appropriate for children and
teens. We encounter this while talking to parents of
our younger patients all the time. It is true that more
young people wear visible braces, but what you may
not realise is that you likely have friends, acquaintances
and people you work with who are straightening their
teeth: but invisibly! Advances in orthodontic technology
have introduced the use of clear aligners, such as
Invisalign®treatment, offering an altogether more
discrete treatment option for adult patients.

Straight Talking

Teeth are not the only things we believe should be
straight. We try our best to make our communication
easy to understand for patients. We provide up front
information about your proposed treatment and the
anticipated costs. We are honest about any proposed
treatment where there are uncertainties. Any
questions you may have about your treatment, we
encourage you to ask. We encourage parents to
accompany their children into the treatment room
to keep up to date on progress.
