The 2018 McIntosh Dental Orthodontic Scholarship
Terms and Conditions
The McIntosh Dental Orthodontic Scholarship is a prize valued at up to NZD$5,000 to be used only towards orthodontic treatment to be completed at McIntosh Dental Centre.
The (up to) $5,000 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 at McIntosh Dental Centre.
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, McIntosh Dental Centre reserves the right to charge private fees for the remainder of treatment. McIntosh Dental Centre 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.
Currently enrolled students in Years 7 – 13 of the following schools may be nominated for the 2018 Scholarship:
- ACG Sunderland College
- Henderson High School
- Liston College
- Massey High School
- Rutherford College
- St Dominic’s College, Henderson
- Waitakere College
For the elimination of doubt, the student must be enrolled and attending their school on the date of the Scholarship being awarded. If a student leaves their school before the date of the Scholarship being awarded, they will forfeit their entry in the Scholarship.
Anyone may nominate a deserving student for the Scholarship.
Applications will be received between 1 August 2018 to 31 August 2018. Applications received after this will not be considered.
Applications can be made in two ways. The first way is to visit the McIntosh Dental website and fill out the online nomination form. The webpage for applications is www.mcintoshdental.co.nz/apply-for-ortho-scholarship. Alternatively, you can download a nomination form from our website or call us and we will post you a form. Completed forms can be scanned and emailed, or posted or dropped into McIntosh Dental Centre, 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, or contributions to the Community.
In late September 2018, all applications will be considered by the Orthodontic Scholarship Committee. A few finalists will be chosen and they will be invited to attend McIntosh 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 four 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 2018.
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.
The Scholarship recipients will be awarded a prize to the value of $5,000 to be used towards a course of Orthodontic treatment at McIntosh Dental. Treatment will only proceed with the full co-operation and informed consent of the patient, and their parents/guardians.
SCHOLARSHIP WINNER OBLIGATIONS:
The scholarship recipient consents to have their photo taken and used on the McIntosh Dental website/Facebook page to congratulate them on their success. The Scholarship recipient will be asked to allow their clinical photos to be used for the purposes of patient education (e.g. before and after treatment).
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.
