Courtney Orthodontics on Elmira:
At Courtney Orthodontics on Elmira, we are committed to delivering the very best orthodontic care in Palmerston North, by combining friendly service with a comfortable, welcoming environment.
Specialist Orthodontist Mike Courtney develops an individualised treatment plan with patients to improve the functionality and appearance of their teeth.
The most common form of orthodontic treatment is braces. We offer a variety of braces to suit every patient, whether it's subtle, tooth-coloured ceramic braces or "mouth bling" from our selection of coloured brands.
When designing our orthodontic practice our top priority was comfort. We sympathetically refitted a Californian bungalow to create a practice environment that is as home-like as possible, whilst also maintaining high professional standards.
