Your best smile is possible with Dr Saacks
Every smile is unique. Every person is individual.
The treatments we recommend are customised to achieve the best results. Dr Saacks, a renowned international specialist, oversees all treatment plans from start to finish. Our team brings together the latest technologies from Australia and America to give you excellence in orthodontics. This approach is so much more than ‘one system fits all’ and we look forward to sharing it with you.
We pride ourselves on providing the best patient experience for every case we treat!
We appreciate the growing concern and uneasiness that some of you may be feeling regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.
If you are worried about whether your care can continue with us through this period, please rest assured we are still open and ready to look after you.
We are taking steps to make sure our clinic remains as safe as possible to give you the confidence that you can continue coming in to receive treatment and advice as necessary.
During the COVID-19 Health Precautions, we are implementing measures to reduce the risk of infection for our orthodontic patients, family and staff. In addition to our normal disinfection and sterilization, we are disinfecting our reception area and bathrooms on a regular basis.
To allow for social distancing in our reception room, only one parent should accompany a child patient for their appointment. Please do not bring siblings or friends to the appointment during this Coronavirus Health Precautions time. We request that no family or friend can accompany the patient in the treatment area. If you prefer to wait in your car for your appointment, please give your mobile phone number to our front desk team and we will call you at the end of the appointment. Additionally, our orthodontic assistants will be happy to escort your child to your car if you prefer.
Please call us to reschedule your appointment if you have had close contact with a person with confirmed COVID-19 while infectious, as you must self-isolate at home for 14 days.
If you have returned from an overseas trip within the last 14 days, please also call us to reschedule your appointment.
If you have a cold, flu, runny nose, cough or believe you may be coming down with any respiratory illness, as a courtesy to other patients and our staff, please call to reschedule your appointment.
We look forward to continuing to provide you with care.
Thank you for your understanding and help during this unique infectious disease alert. Our first priority is always the safety and health for our patients and staff.
We will keep you updated with any changes.
An ideal age to bring your child to visit Dr Saacks is seven. Early intervention can prevent the need for more costly orthodontics down the track. Our team will take x-rays and assess your child’s oral health. Many children won’t require early intervention but it’s a good idea to screen children at this important age.
Your teenager may wish to get their teeth straightened to improve their smile. The teen years are the perfect time for orthodontic treatment. Options include cosmetic braces or Invisalign. The treatment option you choose will depend on your teenagers oral health and mouth structure. A free consultation with Dr Saacks will help you reach the right decision.
Suitable for all ages! Whether you’re 12, 25 or 40 cosmetic braces are now sleeker, smaller and more comfortable. Straightening teeth with cosmetic braces is the most trusted orthodontic option. Dr Saacks understands the need for holistic patient treatment and gives each individual the very best customised care. Choose from clear ceramic braces or traditional metal.
Invisalign gives patients a metal-free, bracket-free option for straighter teeth. The Invisalign system is a virtually invisible and hygienic orthodontic treatment that uses an innovative approach to your straighten teeth.
