She undertook further training in maxillofacial and oral surgery and paediatric dentistry before embarking on her specialist training in Orthodontics at Guy’s Hospital and the Queen Victoria Hospital, East Grinstead. This allowed her to treat both children and adults, requiring multidisciplinary care from other specialties. In addition Annika has treated a number of adult patients requiring the diagnosis and treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
Her Masters research has recently been presented at a Medical World Congress in Maui, Hawaii and is due to be published in the European Journal of Orthodontics. She has also been invited to speak both regionally and internationally, in Austria and Italy.
Annika believes that orthodontics is where Art meets Science and out of work she has a keen interest in the History of Art, painting and attending current exhibitions. She enjoys annual ski trips, playing squash and making the most of life.
