A relationship with an orthodontist is one that’s likely to last years, which is why it’s important to get acquainted with the orthodontic practice you select to understand their values, procedures and general ethos.
At Norwest Orthodontics, we view our patients as part of our family and pride ourselves on offering the best experience possible. Meanwhile, behind the scenes our commitment to best practice goes far beyond the clinic, staff and the orthodontic result.
To give you a little further insight, here are five things you may not know about Norwest Orthodontics.
We share our knowledge
Dr Shimanto Purkayastha is the only Australian Orthodontic Board Certified specialist Orthodontist in the Norwest area.
In addition to continuing his own education, Dr Shimanto shares his expertise with the wider community by hosting education events at the practice for other local dentists and specialists.
The principle behind this is to ensure other dental practitioners can learn and provide the highest level of care for our wider community. This reflects his desire to go above and beyond to ensure clinical excellence for our patients and community.
We work with our community
Norwest Orthodontics is a committed and active member of the local community. We regularly interact with and support other businesses while also participating in and contributing to a wide variety of charities.
Our practice supports awareness days such as Daffodil Day and Jeans for Genes Day, embracing the opportunity to dress up and raise money and awareness for the Cancer Council and the Children’s Medical Research Institute.
As the health and wellbeing of children is an essential part of our service, we have a strong commitment to local charities and initiatives that align with our values. We take pride in our history of contributing generous donations to local schools and charities that support an ethos of children’s health and wellbeing.
Small business is the backbone of any community, and we recognise and foster its strength by networking with other local businesses and by sourcing our supplies locally.
We believe in the patient experience
The patient experience is at the heart of everything we do at Norwest Orthodontics. It extends from our friendly, reassuring and highly trained staff right through to our state-of-the art clinic with its warm, welcoming ambience.
Our aim is to ensure each and every patient is valued, comfortable and empowered with knowledge about their oral health and treatment plan.
We understand orthodontic appointments are yet another item to be factored into people’s busy lives so we offer convenient appointment times, including occasional Saturdays, while striving to ensure we see you on time, every time.
We also appreciate, orthodontic treatment is a significant financial investment, so we offer treatment plans and payment schedules that are clearly communicated and manageable.
We believe in self-confidence and oral health
At Norwest Orthodontics, we believe the right treatment results in a lot more than a winning smile. It’s about facilitating self-confidence and establishing the best basis for great oral health that lasts a lifetime.
That’s why we tailor our treatment plans for each individual patient and utilise the latest diagnostic and planning tools to provide the outcome that suits your needs.
In addition, we actively educate the community on a personal level through hygiene lectures, visits to schools, shopping centres and dentists. We also recognise and promote the link between oral health, physical health and psychological wellbeing.
Our patients say it best
We can talk all we want about our ethos and aims, but ultimately our patients say it best.
Over the years Norwest Orthodontics has successfully treated thousands of patients, with treatments ranging from early intervention right through to adult orthodontic work.
The situations may be different but the sentiment is often the same, with many remarking on our warm, friendly environment, our open communication, our state-of-the-art practice, our clear and effective treatment strategies, and our financially accessible treatment plans.
