Transparency is important to us as we know that orthodontic treatment is a significant investment for you and your family. Here at Papamoa Orthodontist, we endeavour to make the process as easy and affordable as possible.

Consultation fees:
$150 for under 18 years
$250 for over 18 years
The orthodontist consultation includes a thorough clinical examination and a preliminary screening radiograph (OPG).

Recall visits:
If we decide that you are not yet ready for orthodontic treatment, we will place you in our recall system. The subsequent recall appointments will be free of charge – unless further radiographs are required. We will then advise when you are ready to move to records and treatment.

The records appointment costs $350. It includes further 2D radiographs, photographs, and a 3D scan of your teeth. We often like to book a separate visit to talk you through the records and explain in detail the orthodontic treatment options. This discussion appointment is included in the cost of the records.

Treatment fees:
Our orthodontic treatment fees vary depending on the complexity of your case and the treatment option chosen. Once we have assessed your needs and provided you with a personalised orthodontic treatment plan, you will also receive a GST inclusive quote and payment options. The orthodontic treatment fee includes placement and removal of braces, as well as all the adjustment appointments. It also includes the fixed retainers, the first set of removable retainers and post-treatment retention visits for 2 years.

Once a deposit has been paid prior to placing braces, we offer flexible interest-free payment plans to cover the remainder of the treatment fee. We offer a discount for treatment paid in full when treatment commences, as well as a family discount if we have treated siblings or immediate family members.
