Dr. Mark Kum is a New Zealand trained orthodontic specialist registered with the New Zealand Dental Council.

Having worn braces himself as a teenager, Mark understands the effort and commitment a person has to make to get the smile that they want. He prides himself on explaining each process and gives you the personal care and attention that you deserve at each appointment.

Orthodontics is an area of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of problems related to the alignment of teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment can improve the function and appearance of your teeth to give you a beautiful smile. Mark looks not only at your teeth but also at your facial structure and your facial harmony.

Mark understands a stunning straight smile can enhance your self-esteem, confidence, facial appearance as well as the health and function of your mouth. Orthodontics can be beneficial not just for children but also for adults.

Mark offers treatments ranging from plates, functional appliances, stainless steel braces, gold coloured braces, clear braces, and Invisalign®.

Mark’s hours are 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday. He is a consultant at the Oral Health Centre at Christchurch Hospital on Fridays.
