Your Halifax Orthodontists
Dr. Knowlton joins us from Alberta, but with both parents from the Maritimes, he felt the pull of the East Coast early on and chose Dalhousie University for both his BSc and DDS degrees. After this foundation, he moved to Toronto to complete a one-year dental residency at Mount Sinai Hospital.
Following that, Dr. Knowlton returned to his hometown of Medicine Hat, Alberta for three years to practice dentistry. It was then, as he focused on treating children, that he truly realized his passion for orthodontics, and decided to continue his training in the University of Toronto’s Graduate Orthodontic program. Once he completed this MSc, he decided to return to Nova Scotia, and joined the Docbraces team.
As a keen baseball player, Dr. Knowlton is often found on the diamond, or spending time with his wife and two young daughters.
Born and educated in England (as well as Scotland and Canada), Dr. Thompson has been practicing specialized orthodontics for over 30 years. He practiced general dentistry in Halifax for five years, taught at Dalhousie and delivered lectures and seminars worldwide, and then returned to orthodontic practice.
Approximately 20% of his practice deals with orthodontic treatments related to sleep apnea and TMJ, and he has completed over 400 Invisalign treatments. Dr. Thompson attends more than 80 hours of continued educational sessions per year, and has completed training in Oro-Facial Pain at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
Dr. Thompson is a results-oriented, caring individual who takes time to explain each step of his work, and takes great pride in delivering the best in orthodontic treatment to his patients.
Orthodontic Treatment Benefits
Orthodontists qualify first as dentists, then undertake further study to become specially trained in malocclusions and the best methods to fix them. Malocclusions are the problems that are caused by alignment and bite issues, including cross bites or overbites. When left untreated, irregular bites and uneven jaw relationships can cause pain or discomfort. Beyond the daily discomfort, irregular bites often make people feel really self-conscious.

Invisalign in Halifax
What if you could have the smile you’ve always wanted in a truly discreet way with very little impact on your daily life? You can with Invisalign! Your smile is the best way to convey your emotions to the people around you, but when you’re hesitant to show it off because of bite, spacing or alignment issues, you’ll struggle to communicate how you’re really feeling. So many of Docbraces’ Halifax Invisalign patients have commented how dramatically their lives have changed for the better just by wearing Invisalign. They’ve become much more outgoing and finally have the confidence to try something they’ve always wanted to do—like go after their dream jobs or be more active in social situations. If you’re self-conscious because of dental problems, speak to the Docbraces Halifax team to discuss how Invisalign can address these issues and give you the confidence you deserve!
Braces in Halifax
We offer several comfortable, discreet, and affordable options for braces in Halifax.
Clear braces are an excellent solution for anyone wanting to avoid drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment. At Docbraces Halifax, we only use the newest in braces technology. Today’s clear braces are made out of a translucent ceramic material that does not stain and remains clear throughout treatment.
Damon Clear braces combine tieless braces with high-tech archwires that move teeth quickly and comfortably without the need for “tightening”, providing an attractive treatment experience with spectacular results. Like our clear braces, they are discreet and resistant to staining throughout treatment.
We also offer new friction-free braces as an option. Treatment using friction-free braces is faster, more comfortable, and makes maintaining oral hygiene much easier during treatment. The light, high-tech and special shape-memory wires move your teeth faster than conventional materials into the desired position, and require fewer adjustments. Friction-free braces use a mechanism which holds the wire, allowing your teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. Depending on case complexity, it’s even possible that treatment times can be reduced by 4-6 compared to conventional braces, without the need for elastics or metal ties.
