Our Services

We provide orthodontic advice, diagnosis and treatment. We use removable and functional appliances, fixed braces, clear braces and clear aligners. We will arrange referrals to other dental specialists if additional specialist care is required.

We always seek to provide appropriate and timely treatment to suit your needs and requirements.


Referrals are not necessary to make appointments so if you are concerned about the appearance or function of your, or your child’s teeth please feel free to phone us direct with your enquiry. We aim to provide excellent service at competitive rates and we continue to follow or patients for some years after active treatment is finished at no extra cost. Flexible payment terms are available interest free.

Waiting room


Paul Crowther MDS(Otago) registered specialist for over 25 years. Formerly part of the Silver Birches group we are now located in new premises at 10A Elizabeth Street.

I practised as a general dentist for 10 years before returning to Otago and completing my three years of orthodontic training in 1996. Following this I was based in Christchurch for 14 years working in private specialist practice in Merivale, visiting Timaru part time as well as working at Christchurch Hospital as a Cleft Lip and Palate orthodontist. Since 2010 I have been based in Timaru and in recent years I have had a part time position as a clinical teacher at the University of Otago orthodontic training programme.

Our associate orthodontist Joseph Antoun visits part time from Christchurch.
