Together with the head of orthodontics at New York University, Prof. Dr. Kuftinec, she developed the mechanics guide for treatment with interactive, self-ligating brackets using the so-called New York technique. Between 2003 and 2007, Dr. Maija Eltz gave courses in Austria, Germany and the USA at specialist congresses on this method. Dr. Eltz became a member of the Austrian Board of Orthodontists in 2004.

In 2007, Dr. Eltz received the two-year postgraduate orthodontic training from the Roth Williams International Society of Orthodontics and is a member of the same society. In 2006 she founded the Eltz Institute, which specializes exclusively in the treatment of misaligned teeth and jaws. The aim of the center was defined to be able to treat patients with the most efficient and invisible, modern methods possible.

Dr. Maija Eltz achieved Invisalign® Diamond status in 2012 due to her high number of cases and was appointed Clinical Speaker, i.e. she trains and certifies other doctors.

In 2016, Dr. Maija Eltz was promoted to the Invisalign® Advantage Elite Club, the highest award that can be achieved in the field of `invisible aligners`.

In addition to her training in periodontal surgery and implantology in the USA, she worked at the Maxillo-Facial Department of the Vienna Polyclinic. She was mainly dedicated to the treatment of interdisciplinary cases, i.e. of patients whose treatment requires an interplay of orthodontics, maxillofacial surgery, periodontics and prosthetics.
