Our practice

In 2007, Principal Specialist Orthodontist Rhu McKelvey and his wife Jane set about converting the former Evangelical Church Hall in Dundee’s buzzing Cultural Quarter into the state-of-the-art practice Beam Orthodontics is today.

The result is simply stunning. There are two treatment areas: one is a contemporary open-plan clinic, focusing on our NHS and Essentials work and enabling our Orthodontic Therapists to work closely with our Specialist Orthodontists. The second is a more private treatment space and has been described as the “swishest” in Scotland by national newspaper, The Scotsman!

Our modern equipment provides an efficient working environment and includes computerised records and appointment systems. We also have a comprehensive digital x-ray room to provide higher quality images at lower radiation exposure.
