When should my child visit an orthodontist?
The Australian Society of Orthodontists (ASO) recommends children visit an orthodontist between the ages of six and eight. During this time, Dr Moate can examine your child’s smile to catch orthodontic issues early - reducing the amount of treatment they may need later.
Even if we identify an issue at your child’s early consultation, that doesn’t mean we need to start treatment right away. If we can monitor the issue, we’ll be able to address it when the time is right.
