Cheap braces Queensland? Say whaaaa?
We all know about the crippling cost of family dental care. We’ve all looked into our children’s mouths with growing concern, wondering if they’ll need braces or not. There may, however, be a solution for this potentially crushing financial pain-in-the-gum.
University of Queensland Orthodontic Services
You do not need private healthcare to access the University of Queensland Orthodontic Services – all you need is a phone! You can book a free screening assessment and discuss further (CHEAP) treatment plans with the team.
The team offer:
- Full upper and lower fixed removable braces
- Early intervention
- Smile enhancement
Who performs the treatment?
Registered dental professionals who are training in orthodontics at the University of Queensland’s School of Dentistry perform all the procedures. This is the largest tertiary dental facility in Australia.
You can contact them on 3365 8019 or email to [email protected] There will be a process through which a decision will be made if you qualify for the program or not and after that you’ll be put on a waitlist.
Kids and Dentists
Many children can often become frightened by a trip to the dentist. This could be due to a number of reasons. One of the best ways to combat this anxiety is to ensure that you speak calmly and positively about all things tooth. Our kids often pick up on our own fears so projecting a demeanour of serene trust will go a long way towards helping children feel more comfortable and confident in the chair.
