Meet the team

OMÜ owners Ben and Emma White set up White (dental practice) in 2000. Ben has an exceptional reputation for Orthodontic excellence and unrivalled customer service.

The original concept for OMÜ came from a very simple yet fundamental observation – for a 5/10 min orthodontic appointment every month some parents are driving over an hour to pick their child up only to return them to school directly afterwards. Pressure on the pupil to make up any missed work, pressure on the parent to find time in their busy routine.

As parents of three children, at three different schools, in three different counties, this was the lightbulb moment to take our established Orthodontic service to schools.

Our story


"I was really keen to have a brace as my teeth were rather ‘higgledy’ and I wanted to get them sorted for improve my confidence. Having braces changed me as a person. I didn’t want to stop smiling. I felt more confident to smile in photos, to laugh and not to keep my mouth shut. Everybody noticed and told me that my teeth look amazing."


"I smile lots, especially in photos! My teeth are looking so lovely. Thank you Ben."


"When I saw my new smile I instantly felt more confident. I was smiling more. I was smiling with my mouth open, with my teeth showing, instead of a slight grin. It has been a great change for me."


"I was desperate to have braces. I just wanted straight teeth but now I know that it’s much more than that. I didn’t realise what an impact it would have on my confidence. I love my smile thanks to my Dad! "


"Before I had my braces my smile was a 2! It was really bad. Now I’d say that my smile is a 10 – I really love my smile."


"Lots of people say they love my smile. I smile all the time! I’m so happy that I had “braces”. "


"I would 100 % recommend orthodontics to my friends. Ben and the team were so kind and reassuring throughout the whole process. My new smile has given me more of my identity. I love it. Thank you OMÜ."


"The reason I had braces was that when we went on holiday we would take lots of family photos. I never used to smile in them. It was something that I didn’t feel comfortable with. Now, after my braces I smile more. My friends noticed and asked if I’d had my teeth done. I’d definitely recommend OMÜ."
