Derek Mahony is a Specialist Orthodontist who has spoken to thousands of practitioners about the benefits of interceptive orthodontic treatment.

He has promoted early ENT consultations, and normalized tongue posture, ever since. His lectures are based on the positive impact such a combined treatment approach has had on his orthodontic results and the benefits this philosophy provides from a practice management viewpoint.

After completing his Dental Degree at the University of Sydney Dr Mahony proceeded to the United Kingdom where he completed his Masters Degree in Orthodontics at the Eastman Dental Hospital, Institute of Dental Surgery, London. Further studies led to the successful completion of a Diploma in Orthodontics at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh.

He has also attained his Membership in Orthodontics qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons, England and is a Fellow in the Orthodontic Division of the Royal College of Dentists, Canada.

Dr Mahony is a contributing editor to the Journal of Clinical Pediatric Dentistry and the International Journal of Orthodontics.  Dr Mahony is a Fellow of the International College of Dentists and is considered a pioneer, throughout the world, in raising dentist’s awareness of the need for early interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Mahony has been actively involved in research that links constricted maxillary archforms to nasal breathing problems, adverse facial growth and systemic health problems such as nocturnal enuresis.  He has presented over 400 lectures on orthodontic topics in more than 30 countries.  As a practicing clinician, Dr. Mahony’s research interests are in the etiology of malocclusion and the guidance of facial growth.
