The Orthodontic Specialty Clinic provides correction to teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. The goal of the program is to train dentists to provide the most optimal advanced care for patients. Treatment in all specialty clinics is done by residents who are dentists, under the direct supervision of certified specialists who are professors at the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry.
We treat patients of any age, including children, teenagers and adults. When you begin treatment depends on the growth and development of the jaw as well as the stage of tooth eruption. We also have many adult patients in our clinic who have chosen to pursue orthodontic treatment later in life.
We only accept patients that have excellent oral hygiene.
Patients are accepted by referral only. Please ask your dentist to complete the oral hygiene/restorative clearance form and submit the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our services typically have a wait list. When you reach the top of the list, you will be notified of your appointment time and supplied with paperwork that must be completed and brought with you. You may have to wait six to nine months before receiving that first appointment.
The Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry is an educational facility. If the care you need does not fit the teaching requirements of our program, you may not be accepted as a patient.
Our clinics operate during the daytime within standard business hours. If missing school or work for appointments is not an option, a private practice might suit your needs better.
Clinics operate on a limited schedule. For example, one clinic may only be offered on alternating Tuesdays, while another is limited to one Monday each month. Based on your clinic assignment, there will only be certain days we can schedule your appointments, with the exception of emergencies. Flexibility is a must for all patients.
Visiting the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry is a great way get the dental care you need at a more affordable price. Our fees are significantly lower than the various specialties listed in the Manitoba Dental Association Fee Guide, often by as much as 50 per cent.
Payment is expected after each appointment. We accept cash, direct debit, credit cards. If you have dental insurance coverage, please be aware that we do not accept payment directly from your insurance company. We will provide you with necessary forms you will need to arrange re-imbursement from your insurance.
For patients undergoing extensive treatment over a period of time, such as orthodontic or prosthodontic care, payment does not have to be made all at once. Talk to us about scheduling payments throughout your treatment. Please note that full payment is required by the time treatment is complete.
Fees are dependent on the procedure performed and rates at the College are subject to change. All costs will be discussed before services are performed, giving you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss options.
