Meet Dr. Devan Naidu

About Me

I enjoy orthodontics and am passionate about what I do.

Working with patients to create beautiful smiles is what I enjoy! As a Toowoomba lad, I am pleased to be able to offer my skills and services as an Orthodontist in the Darling Downs region.


self-portaitI grew up in Toowoomba (having attended high school at St. Mary’s College), and completed my 5 year dental degree (with first class Honours) at the University of Queensland.  After graduating, I worked in private practice in Toowoomba, Highfields, and Brisbane before undertaking my specialist orthodontic training. I am a registered orthodontic specialist, having completed an additional 3 year Doctorate of Clinical Dentistry (Orthodontics) at the University of Queensland. I hold memberships and affiliations with the Australian Dental Association, Australian Society of Orthodontists, Australian Orthodontic Board, Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh), and Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. When I’m not enjoying clinical practice, I’m a keen academic. I have published numerous scientific papers in orthodontic journals and enjoy keeping abreast with the current literature.

My Philosophy

I believe firmly in keeping up-to-date with the latest research and technology so to provide my patients with the best possible orthodontic care. I am committed to continuing education and hence regularly attend orthodontic conferences, both here and overseas. My special interest is in Invisalign®. By nature, I am meticulous and a perfectionist, and am committed to getting all my patients an excellent result! I also believe that I am only as good as my staff. I am blessed to have lovely, caring, and friendly support staff and orthodontic nurses who work with me and make our patients’ experiences a memorable one.

When I’m not working!

Outside of orthodontics I enjoy keeping fit, playing touch, and spending time with my two dogs.
