Dr Chris Orloff is a dental graduate of Kings College School of Medicine and Dentistry (1989) and completed the orthodontic training programme at UWA. On completion of the training programme, Dr Chris was awarded a Master of Science in Orthodontics and later was conferred Membership in the Royal Australian College of Dental Surgeons.

Invisalign changed the world of orthodontics by creating the first digital patient-specific orthodontic technique with customisation for every patient. He believes the future of orthodontics is customised to each person, achieving excellent results but also simultaneously reducing the need for so many disruptive appointments affecting school and work schedules.
Dr Chris has not neglected his obligation to the profession of orthodontics, serving two-year terms as both State Treasurer and State President of the Australian Society of Orthodontists (WA Branch). He is currently a member of the Australian Dental Society and the American Association of Orthodontists.
Over the years Dr Chris has developed an interest in the impact of Sleep Disordered breathing in both children and adults and has successfully completed a Graduate Diploma in Dental Sleep Medicine at UWA.
He currently holds a position as Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology. His current research projects are clinical investigations into the effects of Invisalign aligners and tele-dentistry.
Despite a very busy and rewarding professional career, Dr Chris still manages to get away from it all. His interests are boating and diving, and his growing herd of lively alpacas!
