About us


Orthodontic Update is a leading peer-reviewed clinical journal for orthodontists, helping them to face everyday challenges that occur in the surgery, offering practical and relevant solutions, and keeping practitioners informed of innovative developments and clinical procedures

Our principal aim is to offer readers a source of continuing education and practical advice. Most importantly, all published articles have been subject to rigorous peer review, sometimes by members of the Editorial Board, but always by experts in the area that the article addresses.

The Editorial Director, Professor Jonathan Sandler, and members of the editorial board are all experts in their field and provide a clear direction for the journal to meet its aims and scope.

Orthodontic Update is published four times per year, both in print and online. Each issue provides 4 hours of CPD.
