Dr Mark Cordato is the only orthodontist living and working full time in the region. Residing in Bathurst, he provides the service that only a full time practice can. Mark has been established in Bathurst for over 25 years. He opened his Lithgow practice in 2015, to better accomodate our Lithgow & Blue Mountains patients.
Mark being a member of many orthodontic and dental organisations helps him be up to date and well informed about all aspects of orthdontics and dentistry. Mark lectures at universities and conferences nationally and internationally, and has been Head of teaching orthodontics for undergraduate students at Charles Sturt University's Faculty of Dentistry for over 6 years. This follows years of orthodontic specialist level teaching in Australia and overseas.
The national body of the Australian Orthodontic Society has given Mark the responsibility for organising the lecture programme for the 2018 orthodontic congress in Sydney. Mark has used his knowledge of state of the art orthodontics and his contacts around the world to build the programme.
Some of Mark's published work:
Brady has been working with us since 2016, after graduating from Charles Sturt University with a Bachelor of Oral Health.
Brady assists Mark in all areas of orthodontics and dentistry alike, with a special focus on maintaining and improving oral hygiene and prevention of dental disease.
Patients will often be booked in with Brady for thorough check ups and cleans. Brady also takes impressions and photos of your teeth to optimise our dental records.
Additional to this, Brady removes braces at the end of treatment and implements retention so the teeth do not move. He will continue to check your retention periodically after braces are removed to ensure you are always putting your best smile forward.
We want you to have a great orthodontic experience, and we know that doesn't just come with treatment. Our staff are selected because they are nice people with warm and friendly natures. Bringing together a multitude of skills and years of experience as a team, we will ensure you and your family are looked after all the way to a beautiful and healthy smile.
Our staff are trained comprehensively in sterilisation, orthodontic and dental nursing. Our nurses undergo continual training and certification through courses and lectures. Our staff are able to choose courses based on their particular interests within dental the practice.
We are very lucky that all of our wonderful staff are great friends both inside and outside of work. We have shared many wonderful birthdays, engagements, weddings, and baby showers together. Movie nights out and dinner parties together are something we choose to do in our spare time, and love bonding outside of the practice.
