Research Publications

We believe continuing research into areas of dentistry, medicine and orthodontics and the dissemination of these findings only serves to improve the care of patient on a global level.

Dr Siva has contributed to orthodontic education and research in his role as a Visiting Lecturer and Faculty Member at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and the Department of Dentistry at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Dr Siva continues to collaborate with his colleagues at Harvard University, Boston Children’s Hospital, the University of Western Australia and the University of Dusseldorf, providing him with first hand exposure to the latest technologies and research results. He has had his work published in leading peer-reviewed medical, dental and surgery journals including the Australian Orthodontic Journal, Sleep, the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, the Journal of Evidence-based Dental Practice and the Cleft-Palate Craniofacial Journal.

Please see below for a selection of the peer reviewed articles published by Dr Siva in leading international journals.
