We're closed temporarily

Courtenay Orthodontics

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.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
