Totally Ortho: Leichhardt
Dr Chan graduated in Dentistry from The University of Sydney in 1979. After working at the Dental Hospital and in private practice in the Southern suburbs, she returned to Sydney University to specialise in orthodontics and obtained her Masters’ Degree in 1989.
Dr Chan has worked as an associate orthodontist in Pymble and Forestville and then as a partner in a large group practice in Hurstville, Parramatta, Liverpool and Epping.
In May 2005, Dr Chan joined Totally Ortho in the inner west and loves the fact that this practice is multicultural (both patients and staff) and has patients from many different socio- economic levels making it a very interesting place in which to work. She also loves the happy atmosphere that this practice engenders.
Dr Chan is a visiting consultant orthodontist at both The Westmead Children’s Hospital and The Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick and has been a tutor in the Orthodontic Department at the University of Sydney since 1990. Her Masters’ thesis was on the treatment of cleft lip and palate and this has remained a field of great interests to her. Dr Chan also treats children with other Cranio-facial abnormalities, medically compromised children as well as patients with sleep apnoea.
Dr Imer has lived and worked in Sydney’s Inner West for almost 30 years. He obtained his initial dental degree from the University of Sydney in 1981 and returned to complete his Specialist Orthodontic degree from the same University in 1986.
Since becoming an orthodontist he has worked solely in this Inner West Practice and has built many long-standing relationships with local dental professionals, patients and families. Many of these relationships have extended and continued outside the Practice via local sporting clubs where both he and his four adult children continue to be involved as players, managers, coaches and umpires.
Dr Imer is particularly proud of the relaxed and family oriented atmosphere that everyone working in the Totally Ortho practice aspires to maintain.
Over the years he has given a significant portion of his spare time to the Australian Society of Orthodontists, spending two decades on its governing Council covering all roles – Secretary, Treasurer, Vice-President and President – looking after the interests of both orthodontists and their patients.
