Jonathan Alexander-Abt is the Subject of a New Interview

The noted British specialist orthodontist sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy.

LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / June 20, 2022 / It is with much enthusiasm that Jonathan Alexander-Abt,

a renowned British specialist orthodontist, announces that he is the subject of a new, in-depth interview. The interview, conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of an online periodical aimed at entrepreneurs and businesspeople, was published on April 28, 2022.

Early in the piece, Jonathan replies to a question about what initially inspired him to pursue a career in orthodontics. "My ambition of becoming an orthodontist began when I was 12 years old and had to get braces myself. My orthodontist, Richard Marx, was a clever man who showed me how orthodontics married intellectual challenge with art, physics, and medicine," he recalls, elaborating, "The real joy that I derive from practicing specialist orthodontics, though, is that I am able to harness the power of dental medicine and physics to change my patient's lives for the better. I love that I am able to work with my patients on mainly elective, non-invasive treatment plans that transform their smiles and make a real difference for their self-esteem and confidence."

Further along in the interview, Jonathan Alexander-Abt is asked what he thinks about current trends in his field, such as the recent shift away from fixed metal braces in favour of products like Invisalign. "I have been practicing specialist orthodontics for over 25 years and I firmly believe that fixed braces are the most effective way of treating most cases. The advances in bracket design and continuous improvement of materials makes this journey ever more gratifying. I don't believe that choices like Invisalign, which seemingly circumvent the need for specialist treatment design, give patients the superior result achieved with fixed braces."
