Dr Angie Phelan
MOrth RCS (Ed)
As soon as she started dental school, Dr Phelan (Angie) knew she wanted to be a Specialist Orthodontist. She graduated from the University of Queensland in 2005 as a dentist with First Class Honours and went on to gain valuable experience working in general practice before moving to Sydney, where she completed her Clinical Doctorate (DClinDent) in Orthodontics at the University of Sydney.
Having grown up and attended school in Coorparoo at Loreto College, Angie jumped at the opportunity to return to her hometown and open EDGE Orthodontics with her husband, Dr Lachlan Crowther.
Angie has a keen appetite for expanding her knowledge in the field of orthodontics and has been involved in several research projects, including working on a study with the University of Michigan on facial growth and development. Her outstanding clinical results have also been recognised on numerous occasions.
Her accolades include:
- Australian Society of Orthodontics (NSW) prize for best clinically treated case by a postgraduate orthodontist (2010)
- Australasian Orthodontic Board Clinical Award (NSW, 2011)
- Sims Award by the Australian Society of Orthodontists - this award is bestowed on the most meritorious post-graduate orthodontist in Australia (2009/10) and was based on her outstanding clinical ability, university achievements and published research
Angie’s friendly manner and enthusiastic presence helps her patients feel reassured and relaxed at all times. Known for always going the extra mile, she is a perfectionist who prides herself on achieving results that exceed her patient’s expectations.
During her downtime she enjoys keeping fit, spending time with friends and family - and trying not to talk endlessly about teeth with Lachlan!
