At the initial consultation, we will provide a comprehensive orthodontic examination and appropriate treatment options.
Let us know your concerns so we can focus on what bothers you. We will let you know what our concerns are and between us we will get it right.
Our practice has a reputation for providing timely, appropriate and affordable treatment. If there is minimal benefit in commencing treatment at the time of the consultation we will explain why and place you on recall.
The Australian Society of Orthodontists recommends initial orthodontic assessment by the time the front permanent teeth erupt (around seven years of age). However, this is primarily to identify potential problems that could benefit from interception. The majority of young children will not fall into this category.
If treatment is indicated, we will provide you with appropriate options, including no treatment if you prefer. In addition, we will discuss fees and payment options. You might be surprised to find that orthodontic treatment is not as expensive as you might think, and quite manageable with our interest free payment plans to suit your budget.
We recognise that adults require different attention to their needs, so we offer private consultation rooms and aesthetic alternatives to traditional metal braces. Adults now make up a quarter of orthodontic patients; so don’t be afraid that you are too old!
