Put your best face forward.
Invest in a smile from a specialist
Orthodontists specialise in straightening teeth, making them bite together properly and creating a great smile. If you or your child needs treatment, look for our logo – the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists (NZAO) – the professional organisation committed to ensuring you receive specialist orthodontic care.
Orthodontists are dentists who've completed an additional two to three years of full-time, specialised university education in orthodontics. Only a specialist orthodontist has the knowledge and training to advise you on the full range of orthodontic options, including the best age to begin treatment.
You don't need a referral from your dentist or dental therapist – you are welcome to contact your local member of the NZ Association of Orthodontists directly.
