True Alignment Orthodontics

We are in the business of making people feel better, and we love it!

At True Alignment, we have committed to walk alongside each and every one of our patients as they go on a journey to transform their health and their smile.

This process can take years sometimes so we like to think of our patients as extended members of the True Alignment family!

Empathy + Technology

These two words are at the heart of everything we do.

Empathy - we understand that your unique health journey (and that of your kids) is one of the most personal things that you could trust someone with. Every patient of ours is wonderfully unique and we are so passionate about creating an environment where you feel heard, seen and educated on how to best improve the health of yourself and your loved ones.

Empathy - we believe that you deserve the very best, most advanced products and services that are available! To that end, we are constantly looking to the future of orthodontics and incorporating cutting edge technology to improve both your experience with us, as well as your results.

Dr. Vernon Kruger

The team here at True Alignment are assisted by Dr. Vernon Kruger, a registered dentist who has been practicing the art and science of orthodontics for over forty years, both locally and overseas.

He has been acknowledged as one of the top 1% Invisalign providers of more than 100,000 skilled doctors globally.

Invisalign is a leader in clear aligner technology, with over 10 million individuals worldwide who have achieved better smiles using this innovation.

Dr. Kruger's philosophy stems from a commitment to full-body health and wholeness.

This means his treatment addresses aspects such as the shape, size and position of your jaw, the improvement of your airways, body posture, as well as, of course, that beautiful natural smile you always wanted.

His commitment to identifying underlying problems and developing comprehensive treatment plans that avoid invasive work such as teeth extractions means you can rest assured that you are in the very best of hands with us.

He is a Certified Senior Instructor at the International Association for Orthodontics with Fellow status membership.

Dr Kruger has lectured internationally and in New Zealand frequently. He is a consultant to practitioners worldwide now as more people are becoming interested in this fascinating proposal of proper orthodontic treatment.

He now mostly travels to different countries, showing and teaching. You never know, the next time you come to see us he could be here to say hello. Vernon is very digital, so you can speak to him anytime on Zoom or Skype.

Full Body Wellness Vs. Narrow Specialisation

“Often, to get clarity on an issue, you need to look at the whole picture. I have a holistic philosophy, something our profession feels is very important“

Dr Kruger has chosen not to follow the conventional path of becoming a registered specialist orthodontist. As explained earlier, he prefers to look at the field of alignment, airways and facial beauty from a perspective that is not restricted to simply straightening teeth. The orthodontic profession is starting to focus a lot more on this now.

The highly respected International Journal of Orthodontics has recently published Dr Vernon Kruger's paper on digital orthodontics
