The Orthodontic Scholarships are two prizes of up to $10,000 towards orthodontic treatment at Fraser Dental Centre or McIntosh Dental Centre. The prizes are awarded to two deserving student currently enrolled at and attending Years 7 – 13 at selected West Harbour and West Auckland schools.
Students are nominated by friends, family, and members of the community. The winner is selected by our scholarship committee including Dr Alex McIntosh and Dr Milan Raniga.
