Quane Hailes from Liston College was one of our lucky Orthodontic Scholarship winners in 2019. Now that he is well into his orthodontic treatment, we wanted to check in with him to see how everything is going.

“So far my favourite thing is looking at my teeth in the mirror and seeing the changes,” said Quane. “It’s amazing when I look back at photos from before I got my braces on and seeing such a big improvement. I’m really happy with them and feel so lucky to have won the scholarship.”

And as for Quane’s least favourite part of braces?

“When I first got my braces on it took a little while to get used to having such a cramped mouth full of brackets and wires. You go from smooth teeth with lots of space to feeling really crowded. But it didn’t take too long to get used to them. The only downside is not being able to eat certain foods, but it’s not too big a deal”.

We can already see a big change in Quane’s mouth and face and are so excited to see the end result when he finishes treatment!
