We’re installing a new bulk watermain in eastern Porirua, which will provide resilience and cater for growth.

We are progressing well and are about to commence work on installing a chamber and more pipework at the intersection of Conclusion St and Warspite Ave, Waitangirua. This work will take about one month from 21 October – 21 November, hours of work will generally be 7am-10pm.
From 21 October, a one-way system will be in place with a detour route along Conclusion Street and Desert Gold Street.

Warspite Ave will be reduced to a single lane during the work, through the peaks and out of hours. This will result in significant journey time increase. Please find an alternative route wherever possible.

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.
