Dr. Shimanto Purkayastha is the only Australian Orthodontic Board Certified Specialist Orthodontist in the Norwest area. Achieving Board Certification is the result of his commitment to clinical excellence and ongoing education. It also allows our patients to rest assured in the knowledge they are being treated to the highest clinical standards.
To achieve Board Certification a doctor must not only already be a Registered Specialist Orthodontist but also needs to have treated cases assessed by the Australasian Orthodontic Board. The cases must be nominated before starting treatment and the end results are then independently critiqued.
Achieving Board Certification is a highly-regarded industry accreditation. In addition to his commitment to orthodontic excellence, Dr. Shimanto also willingly shares his expert insight with the wider dental community through lectures and seminars, while utilising his knowledge of the latest techniques and technologies within the Norwest Orthodontics practice.
