Hey there. I see that you and I are going through treatment together. I was braced 12/12/08 and have my first adjustment on wednesday - 04/02/09. I think I also saw you are in Australia? Whereabouts? I am in Brisbane.


I also went to the first person I got a quote from. I was happy with everything that went on there.

But everyone has given me their opinion on how wonderful THEIR orthodontist is since then and told me what a mistake I have made in not going to THEIR orthodontist... :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:


I ignore them. I am happy with where I chose. I didn't pay it all up front though. I paid $1000, and I pay $460 every 2 months for the next 18 months.

I would've liked to pay it all upfront so I could claim most back on my tax. lol.. sadly it didn't work out that way.
