Bhavia Jattan - Pukekohe Orthodontists

Orthodontist Service


Pukekohe Orthodontists was established in 2008 as a specialist orthodontic practice aimed at providing top quality treatment delivered with a nice blend of professional pride and personal care. Dr Bhavia Jattan (Senior Orthodontist)  works alongside Saskia Kuik (Orthodontic Auxiliary), Mari Hands (Orthodontic Auxiliary), Lois Chu Ling (Receptionist) and is supported by Kelsey Openshaw as Practice Manager.

Our Pukekohe clinic has recently closed and all patients are now being seen out of Karaka Orthodontics.

A smile that is aesthetic and appealing is often hard to come by naturally, and we specialise in creating a beautiful, and functional, smile.

Pukekohe Orthodontists has treated literally hundreds of patients over the years.

We specialize in all sorts of crooked teeth, crowding and non-functioning bites. Click here for just a few samples of various treatments including before and after clinical photos!

Philosophy of Care :

We believe that every young person or adult has a unique amazing personality which is often communicated through natural expression. An attractive smile promotes confidence and beauty, not to mention the great benefits to overall dental and oral health!

We recognise the need for professional orthodontic care by registered NZ specialists, and we are committed to achieving the best possible outcome for our patients, right from the very first consultation appointment.


What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry concerned with the correction of malocclusions (bad bites) that may cause crooked teeth and/or disproportionate jaw growth. Orthodontic treatment improves physical appearance and self confidence, in addition to providing a healthy functional bite that is more resistant to disease.

Orthodontists diagnose and correct malocclusions. Orthodontists fit orthodontic appliances, in particular braces, and may use other appliances to fix jaw and facial abnormalities. Orthodontics is a recognised specialty of the New Zealand Dental Council and orthodontists have undergone specialist training and additional qualifications.
