We offer limited consultations for free between 10am and 12pm weekdays only. The free consultation is a 10 minute meeting (subject to availability) so you can find out what you need to know before you commit to treatment. Our free consultation is only offered to older teenagers and adults with a completed dentition to discuss treatment by one nominated treatment method, e.g. for suitability for invisalign. If you can’t make it during these times our Full Consultation is available, for which you may be able to claim from your health fund. A Full Consultation has the advantage of flexibility of appointment times, a full discussion of all treatment options and time to ask questions.
Free consultations are typically taken by people who already have a good idea what they want and are seeking a second quote for a particular form of treatment.
We may take diagnostic records e.g. x-rays, photos and models of you teeth to assist the diagnosis provided at North Sydney Orthodontics. Charges for these records will be detailed in the treatment plan provided. Release of these records to the patient or another practice will require full payment.
Not every problem is suitable to discuss in 10 minutes so
We do NOT provide free consultations for :
X Patients who are already in braces
X Patients referred by a dentist for a specialist report
X Young children who still have baby teeth (because xrays are usually required and child patients have more to discuss)
X Patients who want to ask about lots of different methods of treatment and wish to be fully appraised of all possibilities – so please don’t book a free consultation if you need to ask lots of questions – read the information available in this website first and come prepared!.
X Patients who have had a previous free consultation
X Patients presenting complex problems who require liaison with other dental or medical specialists as part of their management – such referrals will not be made until a full consultation fee is paid
