How We Chose
We based this on the expertise and attitude of both the orthodontists and staff in the clinic.
It is understood that getting orthodontic treatment is an expensive process. We based this on the rates of a clinic versus the market prices in Australia.
Range of Services
We based this on the services offered by each clinic, as well as whether they offer payment plans for their patients.
We took note of the response of patients in our surveys, as well as reviews on third-party sources such as Google, Facebook, and Yelp.
We considered the cleanliness, accessibility, and equipment of each clinic, all of which factor into the overall experience of each patient.

The offerings of Carousel Orthodontic Centre are straightforward, and what we like most about them is that almost all information can be accessed through their website. Moreover, interested patients can book an appointment and check out the costs in their nifty budget calculator online.
Carousel Orthodontic Centre is run by veterans in the field of orthodontics, which means that you’re in good hands. One of the lead orthodontists, Dr Holmes, is highly sought after for his expertise and has been featured in various news channels and publications.
Furthermore, we noticed from our surveys that the patients who have undergone treatment with Carousel Orthodontic Centre were very happy and satisfied with the result and process. We even encountered some families who have been their patients for over a decade.
Carousel Orthodontic Centre has been operating since 2001, and they have acquired a loyal following of patients in the past twenty years. Most patients noted the friendliness of their staff and the expertise of their orthodontists.
We also like that they have reasonable treatment options and flexible payment terms. For simple cases which need up to nine months of treatment, be ready to shell out $2900, while complicated cases might need up to $9000.
Notably, they offer services other than Invisalign treatments and braces for kids, teens, and adults. One such service is the Thumbs Out treatment, a habit management program for children with persistent thumbsucking issues.
Finally, we like that they are conservative in dealing with extractions when forming a treatment plan. However, they handle surgical orthodontic cases in the clinic, if it’s needed to treat patients with jaw developmental problems.

Class 1 Orthodontics is a centre that specializes in orthodontic treatments for kids and adults. They have been around for almost twenty years and have grown to seven locations in Australia.
We think that Class 1 Orthodontics is noteworthy because they excel in providing Invisalign treatments for their orthodontic patients. We found it impressive that they were awarded the Black Diamond Invisalign provider status.
Furthermore, they offer the Invisalign First option for younger patients whose teeth are still growing and changing. They even further focused on their child-friendly services by having a kid’s play area in their clinic.
We were impressed to see their clean and modern facilities. They also offer free Wifi for their waiting patients, making their clinic even cozier.
Notably, the staff at Class 1 Orthodontics are known to be friendly and helpful. Based on experience, the warm attitude of the entire team made the whole treatment process simple and painless, especially for children.
Even amidst the pandemic and lockdowns, this clinic has flexible scheduling and late appointments, making sure that the timeframe for treating their patients is followed. Also, we like that they offer online consultations and remote monitoring for their patients.
On the downside, we found that the costs of their orthodontic treatments are more expensive than others. However, they are true experts in Invisalign treatments, and they also offer family discounts and flexible payment options.

Profile Orthodontics is a full range clinic with locations in Cottesloe and Joondalup, offering services including braces, plates, and clear aligners such as Invisalign.
What makes Profile Orthodontics stand out is their use of cutting-edge technology in their practice. For accurate diagnosis and precise treatments, they make use of 3D scanning and 3D photography technologies such as SureSmile and SureClear.
Moreover, they also offer Suresmile Fusion, which are virtually invisible lingual braces located behind your teeth. Their other options for invisible treatments are Invisalign and Damon Clear brackets.
Led by Dr Chris Wholley, who has over 30 years of experience in dentistry and 20 years in orthodontics, the patients we surveyed were at ease and confident in their treatments with Profile Orthodontics.
It is also noteworthy that Fr Wholley is the first ever orthodontist in Perth who was involved in the “Perth Face Space Project” using 3D technologies. Additionally, he has presented at state, national, and international conferences, and has internationally published articles and journals.
We also think that Profile Orthodontics does its best as a cutting-edge practice by developing its own app called MyProfile. In this mobile app, patients can check and track all their appointment records and information.
Finally, we are happy that the patients we surveyed expressed their satisfaction with their treatments at Profile Orthodontics. It’s good to know that the staff, hygienists, and doctors are helpful, courteous, and skilled.

In general, Orthodontics on Berrigan boasts expertise in providing different types of braces, cutting-edge technology, and jaw surgery, or orthognathic. They also have two convenient locations in Claremont and Jaktot.
The sole orthodontist in this clinic is Dr Siva Vasudavan, and he has quite an impressive background. Most notably, Dr Siva trained as a fellow in the Craniofacial and Cleft Lip and Palate Orthodontics program at the renowned Harvard University and Boston Children’s Hospital.
Furthermore, he contributes to academic endeavours in orthodontic education as an educator. He is currently a Senior Research Fellow at UWA and was a Faculty Member and Visiting Lecturer at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.
It’s impressive that this practice uses cutting-edge technologies such as Suresmile, Intra-oral Scanning, 3D Facial Mapping, and Digital Radiology. While using such tech means that their treatments are more expensive than average, they ensure precision and accuracy.
We like the convenience of having these machines and tech on site at their clinics. Meaning, their patients do not need to visit another location to get an X-ray, which is required when starting orthodontic treatment.
Overall, the expertise of Dr Siva shows in the glowing reviews of his patients in our surveys. Many of them praised his expertise and professionalism, and we are also glad to know that he is upfront when a certain treatment is unnecessary.
5. Oasis Orthodontics
Services: Child Orthodontics, Teen Orthodontics, Adult Orthodontics, Invisalign, Braces, Hidden Braces, Retainers
Address: Key Largo Professional Centre, 11/61 Ocean Keys Blvd, Clarkson WA 6030, Australia
Contact Information: +61 8 6169 1699

If you prefer a straightforward approach when getting braces, Oasis Orthodontics can give them to you plain and simple. They have developed a process where they aim to provide efficiency and convenience to all their patients.
We like that their process called “Seven Ps of Professionalism” is systematic, and it allows them to treat patients effectively. The seven Ps are pre-assessment, process mapping, priority, prognosis, preparation work, procedure, and producing results.
With this step-by-step process, the team at Oasis Orthodontics can efficiently treat their patients, especially those who require immediate treatment and produce fast results.
While Oasis Orthodontics has only been around for seven years, we are impressed by the good reviews of their patients in our surveys. Notably, patients were happy and satisfied with the results of their treatment and during the process.
Also, we like that their treatment costs are affordable. For example, their standard course of fixed-appliance treatment only costs $75 a week. The costs can even be lessened with private insurance deductions.
Unfortunately, while Oasis Orthodontics have reasonable rates, they do not have readily-available payment terms. However, they are very much open and willing to come up with interest-free payment plans for their patients.
Overall, if you want plenty of options for braces without the frills, Oasis Orthodontics is the place to go.
