It is preferable to stay with the same orthodontist for the duration of your treatment. This ensures the best outcome for you.
However, if you need to relocate interstate or overseas we can help you find another orthodontist to take over your treatment. It is important that the next orthodontist has all the information necessary to successfully complete your treatment and we ensure that this information is provided to them.
With regards to finances, changing orthodontists midway is like changing builders during a build project. Invariably it costs more to finish the treatment and in Australia, we use a formula to work out what portion of the fee should have been paid, and how much treatment will be required. This protects you as a patient should you move to another state or country.
