Dr Peter Vaughan has been giving straight teeth and beautiful smiles to teenagers and adults in Newcastle for more than 35 years, becoming a leading expert amongst even specialist orthodontists – an authority that was recognised in his appointment as Associate Professor of Orthodontics at James Cook University. Professor Vaughan now serves Newcastle and the Hunter Valley as the only orthodontist to ever receive this recognition of such high skills, and continues to teach, mentor, and lecture other dentists and orthodontists around the world.

Professor Vaughan is a leading expert in the use of both traditional metal and modern (clear) ceramic braces. It doesn’t matter whether you suffer from severe medical conditions which have affected facial growth, or are after the perfect Hollywood smile, Professor Vaughan has given thousands of Novocastrians stunning new smiles which continue to last them for decades.

Our patients come from all over Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, and the Hunter Valley, and understandably many are concerned about the potential cost of specialist orthodontic treatment. Professor Vaughan & Live Life Smiling team strongly believes that a healthy and beautiful smile should be accessible to everyone, and we therefore ensure that our fees are completive.  We offer interest free payment plans and work with you to find a solution to suit your budget and Denticare.  In some instances you may even be able to access your Superannuation.  Of course this in an approval process you would need to find out more about with your superannuation fund.

We don’t like extracting teeth for orthodontic treatment, just as much as our patients don’t like having teeth extracted! Professor Vaughan will only ever discuss extracting teeth on patients who absolutely have no other choice, and he is then able to use his unique expert skillset to achieve exemplary results for many patients who may have otherwise believe they could only be treated with the extraction of teeth.
