Interview with Dr Peter Ilori

Get to know Dr Peter Ilori a little better with the help from this brief interview. With questions like: why did he become an orthodontist, what fascinates him about his work and what are his hobbies.

Why did you become an orthodontist?

While training as a dentist I became fascinated by the bio-mechanical and sociological aspects of orthodontics – this led to me enrolling on the specialist programme. I have never looked back since!

What fascinates you about your work?

Orthodontics gives me daily opportunities to watch people’s smiles and faces transform before my eyes. It is a gratifying feeling to be part of a process which adds value to the lives of my patients.

What is your chairside style?

High-tech delivery with professional care and where possible genuine light-hearted conversation.

What are your hobbies?

Family holidays to exotic locations where I can play some golf, pretend to be an anthropologist and sample local red wines.

Best advice you ever received?

Endeavour to fully express your talents in everything you do.

One thing you would teach every patient?

Value your dental health and your smile.

What a fantastic job he has done. She has the most amazing smile now - I cannot thank him enough. It has changed all her features.

Coral Humber’s mum Nicky

I’m a current patient at Octagon Orthodontics…the service is fantastic. It’s spot on and I do not think I have ever had such good service. I was given a lot of information.

Hanna Francis, Interior designer

By having orthodontic treatment, not only has my bite been corrected, I have no clicking in my jaw and the aesthetic results are great.

Martin Dominguez, whose daughter also had orthodontic treatment

I would definitely recommend Peter and his staff, they were wonderful. My teeth were a problem… I was originally told I was too old to have braces. Now my bite is improved, gaps are closed and my teeth look great.

Mary Clements, Housing officer

If I went back to the beginning and had do this again, I would not hesitate. It’s changed everything. I don’t worry about my teeth any more.

Lara Henderson, Yummy Mummy

I have a perfect set of straight teeth. I am absolutely delighted, I really can’t believe it.
