About Our Doctor


Dr. Pnina Tepper-Adler - Specialist Orthodontist

Dr. Pnina Tepper-Adler is passionate about orthodontics and it shows in everything she does! When she had her own braces taken off at the age of 14, she decided then and there that she would become an orthodontist one day.

Dr. Tepper-Adler earned her Bachelor of Dental Medicine degree in 1991 from The Hebrew University Hadassah School of Dentistry. She then entered the highly demanding 'DMD/MSc' academic program, where in addition to the full scope masters of research courses in the field of periodontics (Magna cum Laude), she excelled in her studies in dentistry and graduated first in her class.

Upon graduation, Dr. Tepper-Adler practiced General Dentistry where she devoted most of her practice to young children and adolescents. She then decided to pursue her true passion: Orthodontics. She had the privilege of studying and practicing alongside some of the world's leading experts in the fields of impacted teeth and complex malocclusions. Dr. Tepper-Adler has since helped thousands of patients obtain healthy and beautiful smiles!

After relocating to the beautiful city of Melbourne in 2006, Dr. Tepper-Adler established Centre Orthodontics in Bentleigh, Victoria, where she provides contemporary orthodontic treatments such as clear braces, as well as Invisalign and lingual braces to patients of all ages.

Dr. Tepper-Adler often lectures to orthodontists, dentists, parents, and children. She was awarded the 'Colgate Palmolive' Award for her special contribution in promoting optimal Dental health among school children. 

When she is not creating smiles, Dr. Tepper-Adler enjoys going out on nature walks in the beautiful parks and reserves around Melbourne with her husband and three children. She also enjoys painting and making different types of jewelry.


I feel very fortunate to be able to spend my day doing what I truly love doing. I find that orthodontics is a field where we can actually change a person's life. Its amazing to see how over the course of treatment people start smiling more, building self confidence and esteem. Its as if a whole new personality emerges from a person who was until now embarrassed by their appearance.

A bit like an architecture journey, first you have the initial ideas and designs, then you choose the best materials and devices, and finally, moving step by step until a magnificent structure is created. 

Orthodontics also enables me to get to know so many interesting and diverse people, to become involved in their lives for a considerable amount of time, and to watch how they develop and grow.

A smile can truly do wonders!
