Dr Kruger commenced his dental studies at the University of Witwatersrand in 1982 in South Africa. He moved to New Zealand in 1993 and started working in general dentistry in Cambridge. He developed an interest in holistic orthodontics and began re-training in this field, and continues to do so today.

Dr Vernon Kruger firmly believes that you can have amazing smiles without needing to pull out teeth. Thanks to this belief our practice is dedicated to providing functional ‘Growth’ orthodontic services. While he is not registered as a specialist he has in excess of 30 years experience in the field, treated thousands of patients and is a senior instructor for the world’s largest orthodontic organisation - The IAO

Growth Orthodontics and Jaw Joint Clinic has an holistic approach, practicing Functional Growth Orthodontics.

We work in conjunction with Chiropractic, Osteopathic, and Naturopathic practitioners (if the patient so wishes) who recognise the significance of posture in relation to Orthodontics.


Our practice has state-of-the-art, computerized equipment for the diagnosis

and treatment of Orthodontic problems.
