Our only focus here is Orthodontics – it is our speciality – so patients can be confident they receive only the very best orthodontic treatment.

Your Orthodontist

Gavin Caves qualified as a dentist in 1993 and then qualified as a Specialist Orthodontist in the year 2000. He has worked as an associate in orthodontic practices and taught orthodontic post graduate students at the Edinburgh Dental Institute.

Gavin Caves Orthodontics began in 2010 where he started to see patients in an NHS practice located in Haddington. It soon became obvious more space was required for his patients, so Gavin began the process of building a practice within the town.

Our practice, Our values

In 2014 Gavin Caves Orthodontics opened at Paterson Place in a ‘purpose built’ two surgery practice. Gavin is a Specialist Orthodontist and works along side his Orthodontic Therapist Gemma. Throughout their treatment patients will be seen by either Gavin or Gemma.

Our dedicated team of Dental Nurses, Steph and Nicole, and our Practice Manager Claire, work closely with Gavin and Gemma to make sure you get the best possible results.

  • Fully experienced in all the latest orthodontic techniques and treatments.
  • Understand that every patients orthodontic journey is different.
  • Take great pride in what we do and like to build trusting relationships with all out patients.

You can read more about our practice in a recently published article within the Scottish Dental magazine.
