Orthognathic Criteria for adult with Class III Malocclusion

Richardt E. made this Official Information request to Northland District Health Board

The request was successful.

From: Richardt E.

Dear Northland District Health Board,

I am writing to request a report on how many patients have been provided with publicly funded orthognathic surgery each year, over the past 5 years from Northland DBH as a total number. I would like this number to then be categorised into how many patients received orthognathic surgery for a Class III Malocclusion (Child and adult categorised).

Additionally, I would like to be provided with a list of the Cephalometric and OPG- X Ray measurement criteria that would qualify an adult patient with a Class III Malocclusion to receive publicly funded Orthognathic surgery (+/- Community Services Card).

Lastly, I would like to be provided with a list of criteria that establishes the waiting times for an adult requiring orthognathic surgery.

Yours faithfully,

Richardt E.
