Waiting Rooms Are Boring

Waiting rooms don't have to be boring.  We have done some renovations at our Ballajura practice to ensure that you aren't bored when waiting for you next appointment.

​Play or Browse on our iPads - ​We have installed a few iPads in our waiting rooms but don't worry, they aren't for show.  They are for you to either get a high score on Candy Crush or read up on the latest news.  Next time you are in, we want to see you on them.

​Come to Our Game Centre - ​If you have booked a consultation or regularly visit our Ballajura practice, you may of heard some sound effects and giggling coming from around the corner.  We have setup four stations to ensure everyone gets a turn with Karoke, Nintendo Wii, Xbox and Playstation console as they are setup and ready to be played.

Refreshments - ​In all our facilities, we have fresh drinking water and easily accessible toilets in case you forget to brush your teeth on the way to your appointment.  

​See our past graduates -​ Somewhere in our office, we have put our past graduates who are proud and on display with their brand new smile.  Can you find where they are?

What is the Difference Between an Orthodontist and a Dentist?

Aren't dentists the same as Orthodontists? Aren't dentists - Orthodontists?  Well if not, what are the differences between a dentist and a orthodontist?

The short answer is that an orthodontist is a specialist dentist that focuses specifically in teeth, jaws and face to ensure not only for aesthetics, but also functionality.  An orthodontist studies much longer than a dentist and carries out significantly more training courses.

​When deciding on whether you want to have lingual braces, clear braces or even Invisalign braces, it is always recommended to see a specialist for more information.

​Generally once a dentist is certified through the means of a Bachelor degree, a full time course is required on top to become a specialist orthodontist which is done through a Masters of Science in Orthodontics. 

Orthodontic courses are generally very popular and some training facilities require extensive full time experience in the field before accepting new students.

If you would like more information on our Orthodontist, you can read about Dr Jeremy Chin and the team.
