David Burdess started his first orthodontic supplies company, Orthomax, in 1971. Orthomax went on to become one of the largest and most successful orthodontic supplies companies in the UK. David set up DB Orthodontics in 1998 with his son, Christian Burdess. Christian is now a director of the company alongside his sister, Victoria. Since then, the company has grown considerably, now employing 42 highly trained members of staff.  This includes an in-house design team who work hard to support our customers with any marketing needs they might have, and a regulatory department committed to ensuring compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001: 2008, ISO 13485: 2003, 21 CFR Part 820 & CSA ISO 13485-03-CAN/CSA. Our recently developed digital laboratory has enabled us to expand our product range and take advantage of the latest technologies in the orthodontic field, while our research and development team strive to make DB Orthodontics a truly innovate company.  Our dedicated export department currently works with over 50 distributors throughout the world. This level of experience means that we are well equipped to deal with the different challenges presented by exporting.

In 2013 we were awarded the Queen’s Award for International Trade, the UK’s most prestigious business award.
