Dear Friends and Patients of the practice “Braces by Milne”

My name is Dr Khaled A. Sharaf, a certified orthodontist and I am writing to inform you that recently, the orthodontic community as well as our practice “Braces by Milne” lost its founder, Dr Ian Milne on March 20, 2021.  To those who did not know him, Dr Milne was an outstanding orthodontist whose work changed the lives and smiles of generations of patients in Ottawa over a career that spanned over 50 years.  He was also a wonderful colleague, whose generosity and legacy will live on for many years to come. 

Since last September during Dr Milne’s absence, I had the privilege of meeting with all of the practice’s existing patients.  Furthermore, over the past seven months, I became familiar with Dr Milne’s treatment plan of each patient as well as each patient’s unique treatment needs. 
I am honored to announce that since May1s, 2021, I have assumed ownership of Dr Milne’s practice on 239 B Argyle Avenue, Ottawa, under the new name “Stars Orthodontics”.   

Having practiced dentistry and orthodontics for nearly twenty years, my style of practicing orthodontics focuses on building a strong relationship with our patients and their families, understanding their needs, and striving to exceed their expectations.  Over twelve years of practice as an orthodontist, I have been able to treat many wonderful patients thanks to the collaboration that I was able to develop with them as well as their family dentists. 
I, as well as my exceptional team at Stars Orthodontics look forward to meeting with you in the near future and wish you and your loved ones a safe and prosperous year.

Professional Orthodontic Treatment in Ottawa

A certified family orthodontist based in Ottawa, Dr. Ian M. Milne makes healthy, attractive smiles more possible for his patients through customized, progressive care and current state-of-the-art techniques, including Invisalign and braces. Dr. Milne is the past president of both the Canadian Association of Orthodontists and the Canadian Foundation of Orthodontics. His many years of experience, professionalism, and dedication to providing ongoing patient education make him and his entire clinical support staff a well-qualified choice when it comes to orthodontic treatments to enhance your quality of life and the overall look of your teeth.

How Invisalign Treatments Work at Our Office
When it comes to Invisalign treatments, many practitioners expect the Invisalign lab technicians to diagnose and provide the treatment instructions for their patients. However, this is not true of Dr. Ian M. Milne, who prefers to direct the technicians himself. In fact, he has even travelled to the Invisalign laboratory himself to ensure that his specific instructions for his patients were followed to the letter. If you’re interested in straightening your teeth using virtually invisible Invisalign aligners, Dr. Milne would welcome the opportunity to provide you with a consultation to see if they would be a good fit for your specific lifestyle and budget.
