Orthodontics | Our Services
At McKeefry Dental we offer a wide range of general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental services. Our Wellington based orthodontic services include Invisalign Clear Braces, Full Term Braces, and Short Term Braces.
In order to provide our level of orthodontic services, previously predominantly only available from orthodontists, Angela has dedicated numerous hours of continuing education in this field (both in NZ and internationally in Australia, USA and Asia). She carefully assesses all cases and refers any cases beyond her expertise to local orthodontists.
As with all aspects of dental health, specialists like orthodontists, oral surgeons, and dental hygienists are often required for the harder, more complex, or specific cases.
Full One-Stop-Shop Service
Being a general dentist as well as providing teeth alignment services (usually only available through orthodontists) means that our Wellington based practice can truly be a one stop shop. With us, you don't have to go to the dentist for check-ups and then the orthodontist for braces. At our modern and centrally located Wellington practice, we provide it all in one place. This also facilitates excellent communication and care by the dentist - checking the straightness, checking for tooth decay, and helping the patient to clean around the braces.
This full service is now a new level of service offering in dentistry. As an orthodontist, we wouldn't be able to check patients’ teeth for decay, do any dental fillings, remove any teeth, provide cosmetic dental veneers and crowns, or undertake root canals etc...
As stated by Angela, “I choose to be a general dentist rather than an orthodontist so that I can do more aspects of dentistry that I love.”
School Aged Children | Teenagers
For school aged children, specifically teenagers, we provide core dental services free of charge. In their teen age years, this also is a time when teens may want to address the alignment of their teeth. Click on the link for more information about our Youth Dental Treatment Services. Please note, that teeth straightening and braces are not covered by the Government dental scheme.
