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.
I am Santie, one of the dental hygienists at Growth Orthodontics. I obtained my Bachelor of Dental Hygiene in South Africa, and worked in orthodontic practices for 17 years.
My family then decided to move to New Zealand. In 2007 I registered with DCNZ as a dental hygienist and started at Growth Orthodontics
The philosophy of a holistic approach to treatment and the informal work environment are the two things about Growth Orthodontics that have kept me going for 9 years now and am still loving it. But most of all the ultimate reward for me is not only seeing but being a part of the joy patients expierence on the day we take their braces off….. It’s almost magical..!!!
