At Peel Orthodontics, we know orthodontics can seem scary, strange, bewildering and exciting all at the same time. We want to put you at ease which is why we offer an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for you to find out more about orthodontic treatment, what it entails, how you can benefit from it, and what the process would be.
This is what you can expect at your first visit to Peel Orthodontics.
When you come to Peel Orthodontics for your first visit, you will be seen by one of our treatment coordinators. They will take photos of your mouth, teeth, smile and facial profile.
We do ask that prior to this appointment you have an x-ray. We have a special arrangement with SKG, where they will bulk bill our patients with a Medicare Card.
After photos have been taken, our specialist orthodontist Dr Ash Patel will come in and have a chat with you. He will do an orthodontic examination which involves him assessing your teeth and jaws and taking measurements, which will be used to come up with your specific diagnosis. He’ll let you know what he's doing and why so you are full informed of the treatment process.
Dr Ash then analyses this data, together with photos and x-rays, and makes a recommendation accordingly if he feels treatment is necessary. He will then discuss this with you.
Once Dr Ash has provided you with his treatment recommendations, one of our treatment coordinators can answer any questions you may have and give you information on pricing and finance options for the cost of treatment.
This appointment takes one hour and costs $256.
If treatment is recommended and you take up treatment with us, this fee is deducted from your treatment cost.
To book your consultation, please fill in the online booking form and we will be in touch to arrange your appointment.
I moved to Mandurah from the UK in 2008 with my husband and two children. After 15 years experience in office management, I decided it was time for a change and retrained with Dental Nursing Australia to become a qualified Dental Assistant in 2010.
Since then, I have gained valuable knowledge and experience in general dentistry in both Private Practices and the Public Dental Health Services. I joined Peel Orthodontics in May 2012 and enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere of the team.
I am a Treatment Co-ordinator for Dr Ash and enjoy meeting our fabulous patients and their families when they come to us for their initial consultation. I also work chairside, assisting with all orthodontic procedures.
Working with Dr Ash and seeing the positive results that our patients achieve through their orthodontic treatment encouraged me to have braces myself to improve my own smile. This has given me a greater understanding and appreciation of the process and the experience a patient goes through to reap the lifelong benefits of orthodontic treatment.
I have worked in the Orthodontics part of dentistry for over 12 years, and following a seachange to Mandurah 9 months ago, I began working at Peel Orthodontics.
In my free time, I love to enjoy our beautiful beaches, and estuary with my family and two dogs.
Making the most of a longtime love of the Peel region, we also enjoy boating, and entertaining, and I am currently renovating our home by the beach.
