Canberra Orthodontist Recommendations?

By deezagood 13 August 2009 29

It appears that our poor children have been cursed with inheriting a not-so-winning combination of their parent’s ultra manky-teeth genes.

Major orthodontic overhauls are in our future (there goes the overseas trips).

Can anybody recommend an Orthodontist in Canberra?  

I remember those miserable days of digging-in wires and aching teeth with dread, so an orthodontist skilled in the early-intervention/space-making retainers would be an advantage.

What’s Your opinion?

Has anyone had their braces with Dr Graham Shaw at Hawker? Dr Gita Mazaheri took over the business from Dr John McMahon at Charnwood and I do not believe they do orthodontics

Dr Brice is excellent though you’ll need to turn your hearing aid up to hear what he says.

Previously tried Glenn Carty, I found him to have an appalling bedside manner.

Super Smile Orthodontics is absolutely the best! Not only do they do a great job of giving you an awesome smile, but they actually listen to what’s going on in your world. They have been organising weekly and monthly events for years and my daughter definitely likes the face painting day! Now how many other orthodontists do that?! I’m so glad we chose them!

+1 Supersmile Orthodontist

Last month, my mum asked me to accompany her to her orthodontist. I can say that my mum has a high standard of picking orthodontists. I was happy with what I saw, so much so that this month I am scheduled with Dr. Hyde for clear braces.

I highly recommend Super Smile Orthodontics; it has been a great experience and I am glad to say that I had the opportunity to get my Incognito braces fitted with them. It has changed my life and smile completely, because now I can say that when I smile, I feel better about myself. This is why Super Smile is the place to go, the staff make you feel comfortable, and every patient I spoke to in the waiting room also had similar views.

I recommend Supersmile. They are the most polite and accommodating Orthodontists around. Dr. Hyde and his staff really know how to make my daughter and son feel comfortable and stay calm. Each procedure done at the office has always been explained in details to each and every one of us. Dr. Hyde is fun loving and full of energy. He has definitely found his calling and that is helping patients feel comfortable and confident in their new braces as well as learning the importance of keeping a healthy smile.

I’d just like to say that I have found Dr Glenn Carty fantastic, our son has been with Dr Carty now for two year and the work that he has done is Amazing! The staff are very nice and friendly. we also have a payment plan that we pay monthly.

If you are on a low income you may be able to have the work done for nothing at Westmead Dental, don’t ring Canberra public dentists they wouldn’t have a clue, ring Westmead, I advised a friend to do this as her daughter needed braces, all she had to do was get a referral from the public dentist, her daughter has lovely straight now.

Also would not recommend Dr McGlaughlin. He did my braces about 6 years ago now and when he took them off put a wire at the back of my bottom teeth to stop them from moving but not on my top teeth. When I queried it he said the top teeth didn’t need it and I should wear my mouthguard at night. My top teeth have now moved (not too much, but enough for me to be angry about considering how much money my parents forked out for my braces) and after discussing check ups for afterwards and saying that they would send me reminders, etc. I never heard from them again.

Have to get my wisdom teeth out and would love any recommendations about a good dentist for that. I have heard that Dr Hardwicke in Woden is very good.
