The difference between orthodontists and dentists?
An orthodontist has all the same training as a dentist but has further, specialist training in the correction of crooked, crowded teeth to give you a great smile. Alignment of teeth and jaw and correction of bite problems are what an orthodontist specialises in.
Most dentists agree that an orthodontist is the best person to see when a smile or bite needs some correction. You can rest easy knowing that you or your child’s treatment will result in near permanent alignment for the rest of their life when performed by an orthodontist from the Clear Choice Orthodontists group.
Do I need a referral?
No, you can see us without a referral. The rebate from your health fund is the same whether you have a referral or not.
