What our patients say about Totara Ortho

Fiona and all her staff are brilliant. Very good , very professional and experienced, very tidy clean clinic, all the staff are kind , polite and really good at what they do, highly recommend for ortho treatment they are professionals and they are actual orthodontists not dentists claiming to be. My oldest child's teeth are beautiful and she's finished her treatment of braces, my middle child is currently in treatment and her teeth are already looking better. My youngest will start her braces treatment in about a year , we will 100 % also be using Totara Orthodontists.


Our daughter has recently completed her treatment under the care of Fiona and her exceptional team. She is thrilled with the results, boasting a radiant new smile! We thoroughly endorse Fiona and the dedicated team at Totara Orthodontists.

Fiona and her team have been outstanding during my son's invisalign treatment, guiding us through every step of the process from the initial assessment to the final "Hollywood smile" result. Couldn't recommend their services more!

Ronja Schipper

My son now has great teeth and an even more fabulous smile. Thank so much Fiona and your great team. We will miss the appointments. And yet it is a 'see you later' rather than 'goodbye' as the next son needs a little work on his teeth to make his smile more beautiful than it already is.

Marie Hickey

I would have no hesitation in recommending Totara Orthodontists. Dr Fiona Turner and her team are always professional, polite and considerate. We were kept informed every step of the way about what to expect during treatment. Great communication and appointment setting. No problems making emergency appointments when brackets broke. I am delighted with their service and help.

Rebecca Moore

I highly recommend Totara Orthodontists. Three members of our family have had Invisalign treatment at the practice and we have been really happy with the results. Dr Fiona Turner and her team provide an exceptional service. They are friendly, knowledgeable and the communication at all steps of the treatment is excellent. The location of the practice next to the New Lynn train station has meant that our children have been easily able to make their own way to their appointments.

Megan McKinnel

It has been a pleasure to have Dr Fiona Turner complete the orthodontic work for our sons. She took her time to explain everything thoroughly and understood the needs & outlooks of teenagers very well. She was particularly sensitive to specific needs and medical issues. Both boys love their smiles, and we have no hesitation in recommending Dr Fiona Turner.

Elly & Joel Wilton

Fiona's care of my son's teeth was fabulous and the results were great too. Fiona clearly outlined what was needed, what was happening, and what was next. My son appreciated Fiona's expertise and knowledge of his teeth and her competence and confidence also gave him confidence he was well looked after. The administration staff are excellent too, juggling bookings and ensuring a customer service approach.

Emily Simes

My daughter has been with Totara since her braces journey began. All the ladies have helped her through her time here and its been amazing, so much knowledge and care for us from them, all the way through till today when she got the braces off. I feel that we were so taken care of and my child was never worried or hurt by any procedure she went through for her teeth. We are so thankful to Fiona and the team for everything they have done for me and my daughter. Her teeth look amazing really set her up for life. Huge thanks to you all.

Gina Pooley

I was recommended Totara Orthodontics by my dentist and am nearing the end of Invisalign treatment with Dr Fiona Turner. The service and results from Totara Orthodontics is exceptional. The clinic is not near our home, but the drive has absolutely been worth it. Dr Turner has incredible expertise and a friendly, caring approach. You don't ever feel like 'just another patient'. The clinic is ultra modern with all the latest technology. Highly recommend to anyone seeking orthodontic treatment.

Both of my boys had their orthodontic treatments with Fiona at Totara and now I have too. I couldn’t wish for better service, a stunning, spotless practice, and wonderful knowledge and expertise. On top of that the fees are competitive. I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend Fiona and her wider team.

I am very very happy with my orthodontist treatment that I have been getting at Totara Orthodontist. They have been very good at explaining my treatment and also make sure that I am comfortably through out. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Bruce Fletcher

Very happy with Fiona and all the supporting staff at Totara Orthodontists. My son's teeth are so much better now. We went back today for a retainer adjustment almost two years after treatment finished and was pleasantly surprised that it was free. I emailed Fiona a follow up question at 9 pm that evening and she replied within 20 minutes!

Matt Kearse

Fiona and the team at Totara Orthodontists have provided excellent professional service with above and beyond levels of care and communication for our 3 children.

The technical and human quality of the Totara Orthodontics team is outstanding.
Three of our family members have orthodontic treatments managed by Fiona, Silvana and their team of specialists. We cannot be more satisfied with their level of expertise, technology, highly personalised approach and human touch, all of which make us feel valued patients who are well looked after at all times. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Amber Cooper

My whole life I never knew how to smile or look happy. Spending the money I did is nothing compared to the new found confidence I have.

Courtney Martin

Our son Tamati was referred for orthodontic treatment from the Auckland Regional Dental Service. He had a problem with his ‘bite’ whereby his top teeth sat behind his bottom teeth. We met Dr Fiona Turner. He required a plate and had this fitted and wore it for approximately 6 months. The reason why I wanted to write this reference is that we were very impressed with the professionalism of the practice and the staff that worked there. Fiona is a wonderful orthodontist and did an amazing job correcting the problem with our son’s bite. She established a wonderful rapport with our son and he was always keen to visit. In fact one day as we were driving past on our way back from school he mentioned that maybe we should pull in just to say hello! The service was wonderful and the cost was a lot less than what we expected to pay, and now he has a smile that is even more beautiful than before. Thanks to Fiona and the team at Tōtara Orthodontists.


Warm friendly environment. Wonderful waiting room experience with staff always helpful and genuinely interested in your child’s progress.

JulianaTe Atatu Peninsula

Our three children have all received great orthodontic care from Dr Fiona Turner Orthodontist. They had significant issues that affected their ability to have a confident smile or even be able to bite and chew food effectively. The expertise and care that they received has reaped wonderful results and they have beautiful smiles that show off healthy well aligned teeth. This has been so important for their confidence as young adults. We were kept well informed throughout. The treatment required a lot of work over a number of years and the follow-up has been very supportive and thorough to ensure the long term effectiveness of their orthodontic treatment. We really appreciated the efforts made to keep treatment affordable and feel it has been a very positive and worthwhile investment.

We would like to let you know how happy we are with the successful outcome for our 8 year old son after having Haltermann appliances fitted to his upper and lower jaw. My son said to us that he was always happy to go to his appointments, even though it might hurt a bit, because everyone was so friendly and Fiona always explained things really well and never made him feel scared. We were pleased that any problem our son had with the fit of the appliances were addressed as soon as possible, and much time and attention spent to ensure that it was corrected. The clinic is modern and well designed, it is a cheerful and happy place, and all the staff we dealt with were very professional. We would highly recommend Tōtara Orthodontists to anyone needing orthodontic work.

Dario & EloiseTitirangi

Right from our initial visit to Totara Orthodontists I felt both confident and assured that my daughter Tayla was going to get the treatment and care she was going to need.
I am impressed with the prompt, professional, thorough and efficient service that Totara Orthodontists provides. The communication skills of staff are outstanding and at all times throughout Tayla’s treatment we have been fully informed as to what is going to happen and what to expect. Staff are always welcoming, friendly and approachable and we are 100% happy with the service provided to us. Cheers…Angela
