Dr Austin Kang’s business – .Ortho – is an ultra-modern orthodontic practice situated at the new The Blade buildingin Remuera. The minimalist interior features floor to ceiling views over the motorway and surrounds, polished concrete floors and futuristic looking navy and white dentistry chairs looking over ‘that view’. The clinic was designed by top Auckland architects Fearon Hay.
What Is Orthodontics?
“Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with malpositioned teeth and jaws,” says Austin. “The primary objective is to establish beautiful teeth with the finest facial aesthetics.”
Who’s A Good Candidate?
There is no age limit for comprehensive treatment, however parents typically seek treatment for their children around the age of 11 or 12. “Sometimes we might begin working with a child as early as seven years if they have issues that could reduce orthodontic needs by working with them earlier,” says Austin. Adults receiving treatment is becoming more the norm too, especially with the invisible treatment options that are now available.”
Communication Is Key
Austin also has a deep understanding of the importance of communicating the ‘why’s’ to his own patients. “Words can get too technical so I use informative 3D videos, treatment simulations and holographic imagery. This way people can get a clarity and peace of mind when it comes to treatment goals and expected outcomes.”
.Ortho provides a game changing solution for orthodontic needs with a state-of-the-art environment, the very latest solutions and clear communication.
