For the orthodontic and dental sector, however, this does not mean that we will be back in business. As you'll agree, it's quite hard to have your braces adjusted in a contactless manner - one of the core provisions of Level 3. So, for now, please continue as you were under Level 4 - check out our website for instructions on emergencies (including what we can and can't do under this lockdown level), tips and advice, and information on how to get additional elastics or wax (which we can provide in a contactless manner). Stay safe everyone!

Due to COVID-19 developments, Courtenay Orthodontics has heeded the call from the Ministry of Health and New Zealand Association of Orthodontists to suspend all non-emergency dental care. As such, we have temporarily closed the practice.

If you have an upcoming appointment with us, we will be in touch to reschedule this (once we're able to resume normal practice). We realise this is most inconvenient, however it's a case of safety first at this time. We're all united against COVID-19.

We do have an orthodontist on call in the event of an emergency situation whereby your appliance or braces are causing you severe pain. Please leave a message at our practice (04-385 7213) or call our hot line (027 242 9358) to speak to one of our team.

In the US, a group of influential congressmen is so concerned about the company that it has written to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) raising concerns about SmileDirectClub and supporting an investigation to "ensure that it is not misleading consumers or causing patient harm".

An increasing number of dentists are offering orthodontic services creating confusion for patients - who should you see for braces, a dentist or an orthodontist?

In short, if you want guaranteed orthodontic care you need to see a registered specialist orthodontist.

In New Zealand, a dentist has five years' training across a range of dental issues (i.e. they are generalists but not experts in any area). An orthodontist, however, has a minimum of eight years' specialist training covering dental surgery and specialist orthodontists.

Our colleagues in Australia have put together a great video explaining the difference between a dentist and an orthodontist and who you should trust to improve your bite and smile. Let us know what you think.
