Takapuna Orthodontic Group: Unleashing the power of your smile on the World

About TOG

Takapuna Orthodontic Group (TOG) was formed in 2009 by Dr. Mark Pinkerton and Dr. David Wescott. They founded their practice on a few key principles and these principles have made their practice such a successful practice today.

Dr. Mark Pinkerton and Dr. David Wescott first meet each other over 15 years ago, when they were training to become dentists. They later trained together again to become specialist orthodontists and that is when the early ideas about TOG were formed.

Takapuna Orthodontic Group (TOG) is a progressive patient focused specialist orthodontic practice on Auckland’s North shore. Our highly trained specialist orthodontists work with a dedicated team to provide the highest quality orthodontic treatment for our patients in a caring, friendly and supportive treatment environment.

Our patient centred model of care is based on our recognition that each of our patients are unique with different needs, expectations and desired treatment outcomes. Whether you are a child, teen or adult we will work tirelessly to help you achieve the result you deserve. A radiant and healthy smile.

We use braces to straighten your teeth, correct your bite and provide you with a beautiful smile. In some cases, we work with your dentist to further enhance your smile, particularly if you have teeth of different size and shape.

Please take the time to view our pages where you will find more information about orthodontics, our philosophy and our team. Our case studies show situations in which people have been transformed, their crooked malaligned teeth and smiles becoming a stunning testament to youth, health and confidence.
