Smiles all round as Lincoln orthodontist wins international award

The founder of a Lincoln orthodontic practice has won an international award for smile makeovers – the first Brit to ever take home the accolade.

Dr Matthew Clare, who set up Lincoln Orthodontics in 2005, has been accredited with the prestigious ‘Invisalign Peer Review Award’. This award is presented to only a handful of professionals each year across the world.

Co-founding the award is Align Technology, manufacturers of the clear aligner system called “Invisalign” which has been used by over 5.5 million patients across the world to improve their smile.

Dr Clare was one of only three orthodontists in Europe to gain this award in 2018.

2018’s award, is voted for in two competitive rounds of judging. The first round is conducted by Invisalign itself, which selected Dr Clare’s case study as part of its ‘Global Gallery’, highlighting a long list of best practice examples.

The second round was then voted for by the international orthodontic community, rating the case studies within the gallery based on broad criteria including clinical difficulty, result achieved (i.e. transformation) and quality of clinical records.

Dr Clare, said: “Being recognised by your peers is just the best feeling. Our industry is so well trained and sees new techniques and treatments researched and released each year, so to be presented with an award celebrating the impact we have had on our patients’ lives is fantastic.

“While this accolade obviously means a great deal to me, it’s just as important to my patients – it means they can know their smile is award-winning. This in turn helps increase their self-confidence and self-esteem, which is what orthodontics is all about.”

Having trained at Guys Hospital in London and then completing his orthodontic specialism in Bristol, Dr Clare chose to relocate to Lincolnshire in 2005 when considering where to raise a family. He added: “Lincolnshire was top of my list when I finished my training; I love the fields, I love the coastline and I love the relaxed nature of the people who live here. It is a wonderful place to live and work, and with the practice in the heart of the city, seeing patients from across the county, I really wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.
