Dr Edward Kosy – ABC Orthodontics

Meet the Doctor: Dr Ed Kosy, ABC OrthodonticsDr Edward Kosy - ABC Orthodontics

Dr Edward Kosy grew up in Wollongong and moved to Sydney to complete his Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree. After working in the Illawarra, he moved to Newcastle where he practiced dentistry for thirteen years and met his wife Julie.

His keen interest in orthodontics led him to undertaking a Diploma in Clinical Dentistry majoring in Orthodontics, Implants and Advanced Restorative Dentistry which led to an  invitation from the University of Adelaide to join the three-year Doctorate in Clinical Dentistry in Orthodontics programme. Ed and Julie moved to Adelaide in 2001, where their son James was born a year later.

The programme provided Ed with excellent training and experience with the best new methods and materials in the treatment of juvenile, adolescent, and adult orthodontic concerns. In parallel, he completed special needs orthodontics courses, including the treatment of temporal mandibular joint dysfunction, obstructive sleep apnoea, and cleft lip and palate.

Ed’s primary doctorate research was a joint project between the orthodontic and oral neurophysiology departments into the reflex control of the jaw closing muscles prior to and during orthodontic treatment.

In 2004, Ed and Julie returned to the city they love, set up home in Newcastle, and the following year their daughter Kate was born. He renamed his practice ABC Orthodontics with the aspiration to offer the Hunter community the very best in orthodontic treatment. To support that, he regularly attends local and international continuing education seminars and conferences, so he can continue to provide patients with the latest proven orthodontic technology and techniques.
