I just wanted to say thank you for all you did to help Maddy get her teeth sorted before she heads to Dunedin for uni this year! I really appreciated you fitting her in with all her appointments just before her departure and for your great service as well. Thanks again for everything.

Thank you so much, for the professional job you did for David, Caleb and Jennifer at your own expense. Thank you again for your kindness, it was nice to meet you.


Who will I meet?

You will meet with one of our two specialist orthodontists here at Ilam Orthodontics.

What will happen?

In a 45 minute consultation, photos and scans will first be taken. Then one of our specialist orthodontists will conduct a detailed assessment of your teeth and jaws to determine what type of orthodontic treatment you could benefit from. We’ll then provide you with a tailored treatment plan so you can make an informed decision.

5 steps to a new smile

Step 1

If you’re setting out on your journey to a brand new smile, complete with stunning straight teeth, the first thing you need to do is book a consultation with us. There’s no obligation to proceed with treatment but it will enable you to make an informed decision about whether or not treatment is right for you.

Step 2

At your consultation you will be greeted by our friendly team who will ask you about your needs and concerns. You will discover what type of treatment and orthodontic appliance you could benefit from. At Ilam Orthodontics, we provide each of our patients with a bespoke treatment plan that outlines the treatment you - and only you - will benefit from. This plan also includes an outline of how long treatment will take, how much it will cost and a prediction of how your final smile will look. Depending on a patient’s age and tooth development, sometimes further reviews are required before starting treatment. There is no fee for attending these future review appointments.

After your appliances are fitted you’ll only need to come in to the clinic for check ups every eight to fourteen weeks. We just want to make sure your teeth are moving as they should be and that you aren’t having any problems with your appliance.
