Daughter with very Bad teeth

Hi there, my 13 yr old daughter has the worst teeth ever. Some time ago i posted on here regarding what to do and i was told to go to the a place like " wits dental hospital"  of which i did coz i can' t afford to put in braces for my daughter as it is too expensive. Well i did just that and we went to JHB Gen where we saw the orthodontist. Anyway he looked at her mouth, said she needs braces and gave us a list of names coz they CANNOT do it. Anyway i have been trying for 2 days now to contact these doctors, but they are all private and if they do it, it will cost a fortune. Now i really don' t know what to do as we don' t have the money to do it and that is why i went to the " Wits Dental Hospital"  in the first place. Please can anyone help me.

Hello Melanie
Othodontica treatment is very costly. The Dental Hospital At Medunsa does do the treatment but as far as I know the waiting list is 2-3 years.
