Dr Jonathan’s

I am highly interested in digital orthodontics and leverage the latest advances in orthodontic technologies and techniques. This allows me to provide my patients with the most effective and efficient treatments to achieve the best smile outcomes. I am proud to have conducted high-quality research, which involved a randomised controlled trial investigating the impact of artificial intelligence remote monitoring on clear aligner treatment. I had the privilege of presenting my research at the Australian Society of Orthodontists Congress in 2022. Also, I am honoured to have published my research in the prestigious American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/36990528/

In recognition of my contribution to orthodontic research, I was awarded the Elsdon Storey Special Merit Award by the ASO Foundation for Research and Education. 




I founded Arc Orthodontic Specialists based on the vision of building a strikingly modern and elegant clinic in the Inner West of Sydney where patients would receive the highest-quality orthodontic care. My approach to the transformation of a beautiful smile stems from the combination of three key elements. Firstly, strong evidence-based knowledge. Secondly, progressive leading-edge technology. And finally, an appreciation of the individual patient’s needs.


Our Ethos

The ethos of our practice is captured in our name – Arc. The word Arc represents 3 important interrelated concepts that shape our treatment philosophy


The smile arc is an aesthetic parameter that is fundamental in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment. A smile arc that is consonant leads to the most beautiful, youthful and natural outcomes.

Our mission is to transform smiles adapted to the face, age and lifestyle of our patients to enhance their positive aesthetic characteristics and boost their self-confidence.


The dental arch is the crescent structure that houses the teeth and consists of the supporting gum and jaw bone.

Our primary treatment goal is to elevate smile aesthetics but always within the context ensuring optimal long-term stability and safeguarding dental health.


Arc is also defined as a line of development or the story of a character. We recognise that a person undergoes a transformative journey when they undertake orthodontic treatment and that we play an important positive role in their experience over a number of years.

Our aim is to create a culture of care where every patient and their family’s well-being and values are prioritised each time they visit us.


Our Clinic

Nestled in the heart of Inner West Sydney.

Our purposefully designed clinic is conveniently located in Burwood, within walking distance of major public transport hubs; we are just across the road from Burwood train station. Free parking can be found nearby at Burwood Plaza and Emerald Square.

An elegant & modern space where smiles are created.

Our workspace was designed and constructed with the intent to evoke a sense of calm and warmth for our patients. Our clinic is finished with a serene palette of neutral tones and natural wood elements, with vast windows that take advantage of abundant natural light to create a luxurious, luminous and soothing interior.

We look forward to serving the families of Burwood, Strathfield, Homebush, Lidcombe, Concord, Croydon, Ashfield and Five Dock for years to come.

We look forward to meeting you.
