Unlike other companies, QST never use cheap plastic or composite brackets, inappropriate bonding systems or inferior components for our cases.
The company was set up and designed around one basic premise – to provide the very best quality alongside the most cost-effective prices to our valued customers.
We believe QST is the best GDP orthodontic system in the world, and represents a huge leap in quality and value compared to whichever system you may be currently using.
With gold-standard teaching, products, brackets and support, all backed by a dedicated and passionate team, we believe QST is the BEST and most cost-effective option for any general dentist wanting to practise orthodontics.
QST is designed, led and supported by specialist orthodontists, so you can trust that our advice is sound, evidence-based and built on scientific research.
The iQ Digital Platform is unique to QST. It is used to calculate space requirements, assess orthodontic landmarks and ensure comprehensive record taking.
QST only use 3M products, trusted by 65% of orthodontists. Our bond and composite is also specifically designed for use in orthodontics, not restorative work.
QST use 3M Gemini Clear, Clarify Advanced or Damon Self-Ligating – never plastic or composite. This means fewer fractures and debonds, no staining and reliable debonding.
We use swivel jointed, tungsten-carbide tipped instruments from Ixion – not the cheaper screw-jointed variety, to ensure quality and longevity.
Our course is better than free! The course is 80% hands-on with practical experience treating a whole ‘patient’ from assessment through to retention.
Our forum is available 24 hours a day and all answers are overseen by an orthodontic specialist. We also have staff to assist you in marketing and technical masters.
Ashford Orthodontics are a UK-based orthodontic only laboratory which ensures you get the very best advice, support, products and turnaround times.
