Qualifications

Qualifications

  • Graduated in France (Strasbourg) in dental surgery in 2009
  • Degree in dental surgery, Strasbourg
  • Incognito Certification Course, Birmingham
  • Invisalign®, clear aligner, London
  • Lingual Braces, System WIN, London
  • Centre for Teaching Orthodontic Techniques, CETO, Paris

 

Marie graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry in Strasbourg and qualified at the CETO (Centre for Teaching Orthodontic Techniques) in Paris. In June 2011, Marie moved to live and work in London. In November 2017, she founded The Dental Chambers with her colleague Dr Friedmann.

Her interest in orthodontics allows her to treat children and adults. Her skills range from conventional brackets to lingual braces (placed at the back of the teeth for maximum discretion) by 3M(™) Incognito (™) as well as transparent aligners from Invisalign®.

Marie has a special interest and thorough experience in interceptive treatment for young children where particular attention is paid to the asymmetry of jaw growth. They are treated with a removable or fixed appliance to guide growth and allow permanent teeth to erupt more easily. This in turn reduces the time of orthodontic treatment in adolescence and improves their overall wellbeing.

Marie has a passion for travelling, especially to places where she can take to the mountain slopes with her skis. She also loves watersports, especially kite surfing.

Our Patient Reviews

Follow up calls to make sure I was doing well

I am very grateful to Dr Friedmann. He did a very tricky wisdom tooth extraction, took the time to think about how to do it the best way and followed up with two phone calls afterwards to make sure that I was doing well.
