I am an orthodontist specialised in discrete methods such as Invisalign. I specialize in orthodontics for young people, but my patients are of all ages.

I graduated from University of Helsinki in 1979. After gaining considerable experience in general dentistry, I continued my studies in University of Oslo (1994-1997) from where I graduated as an orthodontist. I highly value continuous learning about orthodontics and refining my working methods, and I constantly study new techniques to be able to provide my patients with the best possible quality and a wide variety of treatment options.

I worked in the UK for ten years in one of the leading practices of the country, where I gained experience in techniques which were still less known in Finland at the time. I was the first Invisalign Diamond orthodontist in the Nordic countries. 


I’ve held numerous talks and training sessions in Finland and abroad. I’m an Invisalign trainer and the Nordic representative in the Invisalign European Advisory Board.
