Orthodontist İdil ÜNAL DEDE



I was born in Istanbul on April 8, 1986. After undergraduate education, I graduated from Ege University Faculty of Dentistry in 2008 as ‘Second of the Term’. In the same year, I started my doctorate education at the Orthodontics Department of Ege University Faculty of Dentistry by winning the Orthodontics Doctoral Program. During this process, I was accepted to the TÜBİTAK BİDEB Domestic Doctoral Scholarship Program. I completed my doctoral thesis in 2013 and obtained the title of ‘Doctor’. In addition to my Orthodontics Doctorate certificate, I also have an ‘Orthodontics Specialist’ certificate approved by the Ministry of Health. I have been practicing orthodontic treatments in various hospitals and clinics for 15 years.

Early orthodontic treatments, facially driven orthodontics, aesthetic bracket, and clear aligner treatments are among my special interests.
