What Are The Orthodontic Scholarships?

The Orthodontic Scholarships are two prizes of up to $10,000 towards orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental. The prizes are awarded to two deserving students attending selected West Auckland and West Harbour schools. Students can be nominated by friends, family and members of the community. The two winners are selected by our scholarship committee including Dr Alex McIntosh and Dr Milan Raniga.

How Does It Work?

During the nomination period we will be accepting applications for nominees.

After applications close, the scholarship committee will select finalists to attend McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental for a complimentary orthodontic consultation. Following this consultation, the committee will select the scholarship winners. The winners will each receive a prize of up to $10,000 towards orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental or Fraser Dental. See the full terms and conditions for more information.
