COVID-19 Update

Under the current Traffic Light System and with low levels of COVID-19 transmission in the community we are able to operate normally.  However, we will still continue to request you scan in, wear face masks and patients to attend appointments alone when appropriate.

We are making good progress catching up on work we were unable to do during lockdown.  We thank you for your patience during this time.

Hibiscus Coast Registered Specialist Orthodontist

Welcome to Susan Carpenter’s orthodontic practice.  Our practice is committed to providing excellence in orthodontic treatment and service in a friendly and relaxed environment.  Our move, in March 2013, to modern purpose-built premises, with full digital technology and the latest dental management software, facilitates optimal patient comfort and confidence in a professional caring environment.  

The benefits of a beautiful smile cannot be overstated. Cosmetically, a beautiful smile will boost self-esteem and can significantly enhance a person’s emotional well-being and confidence.  Functionally, orthodontic treatment can reduce the risk of gum disease, speech problems and the incidence of decay caused by crowded or mal-aligned teeth.  

As a Specialist Orthodontist practicing on the Hibiscus Coast, Susan has been working in Orewa since 2004.  She qualified as a dentist at Otago University in 1991 and then became a specialist orthodontist in 2001 following her three years of training at Guys Hospital, London.  Susan will listen carefully to your concerns and expectations and will discuss all possible treatment options so you can choose the treatment that is most suitable for you.
