We specialise in orthodontic treatment for both children, teens and adults, in our state of the art practice, located in Warragul and Wonthaggi.
Our commitment is to provide our patients with the highest quality orthodontic treatment in a caring and professional environment.
Our specialist orthodontist Dr Rudolf G Linker is a registered member of the Australian Society of Orthodontists, the Australian Dental Association and the World Federation of Orthodontics. He also belongs to the American Society of Orthodontics as well as the European Orthodontic Society.
We also have a Specialist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who visits the practice, Mr Timothy Wong.
With our professional and enthusiastic team, we work together to deliver an exceptional orthodontic treatment and experience for our patients.
We recommend early assessment for children, ideally between 7 and 9 years of age. While treatment may not start until adolescence, early evaluation ensures that the optimum orthodontic approach can be taken at the appropriate time.
Adult treatment is increasingly more popular, as there are a range of options available to minimise the appearance of braces.
What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the branch of Dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities such as crooked teeth. This practice of Orthodontics involves the use of fixed or removable braces to gently bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment, resulting in a healthy and natural smile.
Straight teeth will not only convey a beautiful smile but also provide other important health benefits, such as better function and cleanliness. This will mean that gums and teeth will remain healthy for years to come.
Numerous studies have shown that Orthodontics can also boost a person’s self-image.
