Update as at 24th March 2020
As of the 23rd March 2020 the Ministry of Health have advised that all non-essential dental care should be ceased immediately. This means that, for now, all orthodontic appointments are cancelled. We want to keep you and your family safe.
We thought we’d answer a few questions below.
What does this mean for my treatment?
We’re fortunate that orthodontic treatment, as a rule, continues while you’re away from the clinic. You’ll still get a great result, but it may take a little longer. We will contact patients at a later date to see how treatment is progressing.
Elastics: Keep wearing them as instructed.
The teeth will continue to move/straighten. If you have any concerns about where your teeth moving in the wrong direction, please stop your elastics and leave us a message 06 877 1450 or email email@example.com us a photo of your teeth when your back teeth are biting together.
What happens if I run out of elastics or wax?
We have left some attached to our front door. Please only take 2 packets.
What if I have an emergency?
We are only permitted to see patients who have a significant emergency.
Please note that broken brackets will not be replaced.
For any immediate concerns or emergencies please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check our website and facebook page for any updates.
