Richard Cousley Orthodontist

Dr Richard Cousley is widely known in the UK and multiple other countries as an expert in orthodontic skeletal anchorage on the basis of his clinical innovations, publications and lecturing.  He developed the InfinitasTM mini-implant system which is the most widely utilised orthodontic bone anchor kit in the UK as well as being used in over 50 other countries. In 2015, a commentator described him in the British Dental Journal as being ‘in the vanguard of this (orthodontic) revolution’.

Richard has been a consultant orthodontist in Peterborough since 2001 and received an NHS national Clinical Excellence Award in 2011. He created the Priestgate Clinic in Peterborough in 2018, in order to concentrate his energies on patient-focussed services, clinical efficiency and the integration of rapidly evolving technologies specifically 3D scanning and radiography (CBCT), and digital fabrication of orthodontic appliances / surgical wafers.

Richard has authored over 40 peer-reviewed clinical and research papers, plus two editions of his textbook: ‘The Orthodontic Mini-implant Clinical Handbook’ (published in 2013 & 2020). In the context of orthognathics, he’s published papers on combined orthodontic and surgical treatment efficiency (how to reduce total treatment durations by a third); the accuracy of pre-operative orthognathic planning; and the use of computer designed and 3D printed surgical wafers (positioning guides). Indeed, since 2013 he’s only used virtual 3D planning (rather than conventional physical ‘model’ surgery) techniques for both single jaw and bimaxillary osteotomies.

Dr Cousley has also been an associate editor for the Journal of Orthodontics, and an examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons (England) membership in Orthodontics.
