Orthodontists are dental specialists with advanced training in improving the appearance, position and function of misaligned teeth
. As with any medical professional, finding a good orthodontist is an important part of ensuring a good experience. In most cases, your orthodontic treatment is a long term investment so you not only want someone with the right qualifications and experience but also someone you can like and trust.
When looking for a good orthodontist, it helps to seek recommendations from friends, family and work colleagues. You may also wish to refer to online testimonials or discussion forums. Your regular dentist is a great source of industry relevant knowledge and can also refer you to a good orthodontist in your area.
In Australia, you don’t need a referral from your dentist to receive orthodontic treatment, so you can contact them directly.
The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) lists fully qualified orthodontists who have met the criteria set by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Before you commit to treatment, visit the practice to get a feel for the place and, where possible, talk directly to the person who will treat you. It is important you are comfortable so don’t be afraid to ask questions. One important consideration is the availability of your orthodontist. In the event of an emergency, you want to be in a position where you can make an appointment.
