Dr. Daniel O’Connor is a registered Specialist Orthodontist with the Dental Board of Australia and Director at Solas Orthodontics in Wembley (Perth, WA). He has trained and worked in Ireland, England, Australia and Hong Kong. He believes orthodontics is not only about getting your teeth straight, it is about giving the opportunity to obtain the optimal dentofacial aesthetics.
Daniel was born in Cork, Ireland, where he completed a 5-year Bachelor in Dental Surgery (BDS NUI) in 2002. He subsequently moved to London where he soon became Head Dental Associate at the prestigious Family Dental Practice, where he stayed for four years. During this time, Daniel developed his interests in cosmetic and preventive dentistry, and completed entry into Specialist training at the Royal College of Surgeons England. A subsequent move to Hong Kong saw Daniel complete a 3-year specialist orthodontic residency at the Prince Philip Dental Hospital. This program had a strong emphasis on early interceptive treatment for children, dentofacial orthopaedic treatment for adolescents and various approaches for adult treatment, including cosmetic and invisible (Invisalign, Damon Clear, Incognito lingual) braces. Dr. Daniel was trained in the most contemporary Orthodontic and Dentofacial Orthopaedic treatments. These are skills he employs every day at his specialist clinic.
Outside the office, he is an avid music fan and guitarist. He also enjoys cycling, tennis and rugby, and counts himself a proud Western Force supporter
