The McIntosh And Fraser Dental Orthodontic Scholarships

Terms and Conditions

 

SCHOLARSHIP VALUE

The McIntosh and Fraser Dental Group Orthodontic Scholarships are two prizes valued at up to NZD$10,000 to be used only towards orthodontic treatment to be completed at McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental.

The (up to) $10,000 prize for the Orthodontic Scholarship is not transferable to any other individual, it is not redeemable for cash, unused portions of the prize may not be transformed into cash, and it may only be used for orthodontic treatment received at McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental.

The prize is valid for 36 months after the date of award and the orthodontic treatment must be completed within this time frame. If the treatment has not been completed within 36 months, the McIntosh and Fraser Dental Group reserves the right to charge private fees for the remainder of treatment. The McIntosh and Fraser Dental Group also reserves the right to end treatment early with the consent of the patient if the treatment is not progressing according to the agreed treatment plan.

Anyone may nominate a deserving student for the Scholarship.

Applications will be received between 1 August to 31 August. Applications received after this date will not be considered.

Applications can be made in two ways. The first way is to fill out and submit the online nomination form on the McIntosh Dental website. Alternatively, you can download a nomination form from our website or call us and we will post a form to you. Completed forms can be scanned and emailed, or posted or dropped into McIntosh Dental, 43 Lincoln Road, Henderson 0610.

Incomplete applications will not be accepted, and McIntosh Dental reserves the right to contact the person nominating to clarify details in the application.

Nominees will be considered on achievement in Arts, Sports, Academics, Cultural activities, or contributions to the Community.

In September, all applications will be considered by the Orthodontic Scholarship Committee. Finalists will be chosen and they will be invited to attend McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental for a complimentary orthodontic consultation. The appointment will clinically assess the finalist’s orthodontic condition and confirm their candidacy for the Scholarship.

The announcement of the two Scholarship recipients will be made after all orthodontic consultations with the finalists have been completed. This is expected to be at the end of September.

The unsuccessful finalists will be presented with an oral health gift bag to thank them for their involvement in the Scholarship.

The Scholarship Committee’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

The Scholarship recipients will each be awarded a prize up to the value of $10,000 to be used towards a course of Orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental. Treatment will only proceed with the full cooperation and informed consent of the patient, and their parents/guardians.

ORTHODONTIC SCHOLARSHIP WINNER OBLIGATIONS

The scholarship recipient consents to have their photo taken and used on the McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental websites, blogs, newsletters, Facebook and Instagram pages.

From time to time during treatment, the Scholarship recipient may be asked for treatment progress photos and/or their experiences to be shared with various media for educational or promotional purposes.
