Derek Mahony is a Sydney based Specialist Orthodontist who has spoken to thousands of practitioners about the benefits of interceptive orthodontic treatment.
"Derek is certainly an extraordinary figure in the dental world. Not only is he the best known orthodontist in the Southern Hemisphere but his insights into the world of airway issues in all age groups puts him in a role where he contributes far more to humanity than orthodontics alone could ever do. Looking at the traditional role of orthodontics, aesthetics and psychological impact were the biggest roles.
The link between airway issues and human development begins in the 12th week in utero. Airway-focused orthodontics demonstrates how good dental management can influence life expectancy. Derek has played a pivotal role in educating the dental profession as to how crucial our role is. Far more than just a great orthodontist.
The General Dental Practitioner can influence life expectancy now just like a great Medical General Practitioner. We are also most often the first to recognise the airway issues of our patients long before a GP gets to see it so we are becoming the one health professional who coordinates the management of these cases. This is the growing direction of our profession and from Derek Mahony, you will be well directed."
"You are an excellent teacher and thank you for opening our eyes to different and more comprehensive, holistic orthodontics."
"Dr. Mahony is an amazing and knowledgeable expert in Orthodontics. When I attended one of his talks in Prague during the 2009 IOS Conference, I found his stuff about philosophy in Orthodontics really unique and interesting. It opened up my mind into things that I didn’t expect and I am now using some of his knowledge in my workplace. Look forward to attend his course again. Thank you"
“I have known Dr. Mahony for over 5 years. I attended his lectures during several conferences in Dubai. He is one of the best and talent speakers that I ever encounter in my life. His lectures are very well organized, clear, without bias and with an outstanding ability to transmit the main message. Beyond his well known abilities as speaker, Dr. Mahony is a great person with amazing talent to communicate with others."
