About Dr Helen Flint

BDS(Hons) MDentSci MOrth

Dr Helen Flint completed her Bachelor of Dental Surgery with Honours in 2003 at the University of Liverpool, in the UK. Following graduation, she worked in private dental practice for a year, before spending two years working in the maxillo-facial surgery unit at one of the UK’s largest and busiest hospitals. 

She quickly discovered that her real passion lay in the field of orthodontics, and she embarked on specialist orthodontic training, also at the University of Liverpool. In 2009, she was awarded her Master of Dental Science in Orthodontics, with distinction, and was admitted as a Member in Orthodontics of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. She was awarded the William Houston Gold Medal for achieving the highest marks of any candidate in the Membership in Orthodontics examination. 

Shortly after completion of her specialist training, Dr Flint relocated to Australia, where she has worked in private orthodontic practice in the Sydney area, most recently in Parramatta and Gladesville. 

Dr Flint enjoys treating all people of all ages, from young children through to teens and adults, using the latest orthodontic techniques. She is a certified Invisalign provider, and regularly attends courses and conferences to ensure she is up to date with the latest scientific advancements in orthodontics. 

When she’s not busy creating beautiful smiles, Dr Helen enjoys spending time with her two children. She is also a keen runner and can often be spotted pounding the pavements of her local Inner West streets.
