In the past 4 years. Around 15 sets of double plates trying to avoid what we have just started today.
She will have braces til the Christmas holidays when she will have her top jaw cut to remove part of it from the rest of the skull and her palate spilt. She will have a metal plate installed so we can turn the key a few times a day for a week or two until we get the right distance to widen her upper jaw. Than 12 months more of braces and than a second surgery. This surgery they will remove totally the top and bottom jaws. The add bits in on each side of the lower jaw and rotate both jaws to a different angle and reattach them. Than a few more months of braces.

Can I ask if it's not rude what the waiting time has been like for this treatment? I often wonder with public dentist whether problems become worse and therefore solutions more expensive because work that should be done when kids are younger can take years due to waiting.
My eldest is only 10 so we're not there yet in terms of major dental work (although she had $4k done in December last year) but it seems that so much of it can be age specific as its more beneficial to do it at certain ages.
Sorry if I'm rambling. Been up since 2am with a sick toddler.

In WA all school children are eligible to go to the govt funded school dentist (I'm not sure about private schools ) from Pre - Primary to age 17. They generally get seen once a year for a check - up then booked in if filling etc are needed. You can also call them in an emergency - ie my DD broke about 1/3 of her adult front tooth off in an accident in the school holidays - we called the school dentist centre and they saw her the next day, put a cap on the tooth and monitored her several times over the next 6mths to check the root hadn't been damaged.
The service is fairly basic, but they do a good job. I also take my kids to see a private dentist once a year as well...A year is too long between visits for kids I think...
