We appreciate the financial demands made on families and our fees are structured so as to be paid over 2 years. We are also quite happy to work with our patients in formulating the payment plan. We aim to provide quality treatment using the latest techniques and the best material available, at a fair and reasonable fee.


You do not need a referral to attend an orthodontist. Please ring to make an appointment.

Your first visit

We think the first time you come and see us is very important. We therefore make sure we have enough time to discuss orthodontics and your needs with you.
Because we allow time to give you the attention you need it may take time to get an initial appointment. Fortunately orthodontic treatment is usually not something that must be undertaken straight away. Of course if your dentist advises that you need to be seen at short notice we will, of course, accommodate you.

At the first appointment we will provide an assessment with treatment options and
be able to give an outline of the treatment fees.

You may initially be placed on our recall list so we can monitor the growth and development until the appropriate time to commence treatment. You should maintain routine check-ups with your dentist while on orthodontic recall.

For those who are at the stage where treatment is appropriate:

  • Record collection:
    We will collect dental photographs, moulds of the teeth and x-rays. Following the “Records”
    appointment will be the “Treatment Explanation” visit. Your details as collected at the “Records” appointment will have been analysed and the treatment options are now discussed.

Appointments for the fitting of braces and removal of any required teeth, should you elect to proceed with treatment, are made at, or following, the “Treatment Explanation” appointment.

Routine Treatment appointments

These usually occur about every six to nine weeks once we are underway. Routine treatment appointments take usually 10 minutes. We try to give you the appointment of your choice, however, this may not always be possible. Priority for after school appointments is given to students undertaking VCE.


Specialist orthodontics involves careful consideration of long term success. Our patients now bring their own children to see us. That is the highest compliment we can get and we love that we are part of their family, their community.
