Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.

Bachmann Orthodontics

Maybe you have heard about a cheap DIY Aligners Set to achieve a beautiful smile. Sounds good in the first place.
As specialist orthodontists and dentists, we can not recommend any treatment without the full and ongoing support of an orthodontic specialist.
Bachmann Orthodontics like to be as transparent as we can about the costs of orthodontic treatment. The fees do vary depending on the individual case and the course of treatment.
When a client decides to go ahead with treatment at Bachmann Orthodontics, we need to take an initial set of records. This includes two digital x-rays, photos, models, a detailed treatment plan and a follow-up session to discuss treatment options and preferences.
Cost $390
The cost of braces and orthodontics varies depending on individual requirements. All clients will need to be assessed by the Bachmann Orthodontics team before we can decide on the types of treatment available to the patient.
