If you or your child has a tooth alignment or bite problem that requires correction it is recommended that you find an orthodontist to ensure the most appropriate treatment is provided. Registered specialists in orthodontics are skilled and offer you the most up-to-date techniques to achieve the best possible result.
Choosing an orthodontist can seem like a daunting task, so it's a good idea to ask a friend or co-worker for a recommendation. They'll probably be more than happy to share their first-hand experience, and this is often a good way to find an orthodontist who is convenient, trusted and has the skills to offer you professional advice and treatment if it is needed. Your general dentist may also help with a recommendation or referral to an orthodontist but a referral is not necessary.
Our specialist orthodontic practice is family run and has been serving the communities of Ivanhoe and Benalla for over 20 years. We offer comprehensive orthodontic treatment for children, teenagers and adults.
As no two mouths are exactly the same, we provide bespoke treatment plans for our patients so that we achieve the most beautiful smile possible. At the initial consultation we like to spend time to explain any treatment options and enable you to make an informed decision. We pride ourselves in the quality of our results and enjoy the satisfaction of seeing our patients and their family enjoying their new smile.
If you, or someone you care about would benefit from orthodontic treatment contact us 94997622 as we would love the opportunity to enhance your smile.

Orthodontic problems are a complex combination of dental, skeletal, developmental and aesthetic issues. There are many orthodontic treatment approaches but as every mouth is unique it is important that your unique treatment options are explained and understood.
