It’s tricky choosing an orthodontist.

Like any health care professional, your relationship is going to be intimate. So, you need someone you can trust.

You also need to find a professional with experience, who you can build a good relationship with. But that’s not enough.

You also need to find someone your child likes. Because you don’t want to have to battle to get them to go to each visit, and you don’t want them being uncomfortable.

You want them to be happy to go to each appointment, even they haven’t started treatment. You see, the Australian Society of Orthodontists recommends that every child between the ages of eight and ten years should have an orthodontic check-up.

This is because an orthodontist can see signs of trouble that regular dentists cannot. And the choice you make in an orthodontist today can impact the way your child smiles, talks and chews once they are an adult.

The best approach to finding an orthodontist is by asking the right questions, which is why we prepared this list for you!


Get The Best Care

Every patient is unique and may expect a different outcome but it’s still a good idea to ask one extra question which is, “Can you show me similar cases you’ve treated?”

Before and after photos of a previous patient with a similar condition will give you a better idea of what to expect. It also shows that the orthodontist has the right experience to treat you or your child.

You want the best possible outcome from your orthodontic treatment. To do that you need to do a little homework and ask the right questions.
