The Wish For A Smile Trust is a public health initiative of the New Zealand Association of Orthodontists (NZAO). The Trust aims to make specialist orthodontic treatment available to young New Zealanders who would otherwise be unable to access orthodontic care. Wish For A Smile orthodontists are full NZAO members and registered orthodontic specialists. Participating orthodontists have undertaken to treat selected children within their community who are unable to access orthodontic care because of financial hardship.

Dr Barker is proud to have helped launch the Wish For A Smile Trust. He is also one of the many orthodontists in New Zealand donating his time and skills treating successful applicants of the Wish for A Smile trust. If you wish to fill out an application for this trust or require more information
