Sunderland dentist hopes university link-up with boost international expansion plans

Have your say

A WEARSIDE dental specialist is embracing its links with the city’s university in an international expansion plan.

Quick Straight Teeth (QST) has grown rapidly since its launch in June last year, and provides a unique system to straighten teeth, developed in Sunderland using a range of virtually invisible braces.

Specialist training is needed to fit the braces, which is why QST is embarking on a national training programme roadshow, starting at the Stadium of Light.

As a result of the company’s links with the university, through the Graduate Internship Scheme, it will be holding its final roadshow at Sunderland’s London Campus in Canary Wharf.

Sean Thompson, QST director, said: “We have deliberately chosen the London Campus due to our close working relationship with the University of Sunderland with the intention of securing new orders and bringing this specialist work back to our head office and production laboratory in Sunderland.”
