Meet Doctor Rhonda Coyne, the Far North’s leading lady in orthodontic care.

From leading touch football teams to victory, to extreme adventure racing, being a mum and partaking in the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain, Dr Coyne is not your average orthodontist.

In a short period of time Rhonda has earned a reputation that precedes her. Dr Rhonda Coyne is both a highly recognised name in the professional arena and a house-hold name for the smiling community in the Far North. With three family-run practices located in Cairns, Innisfail and Atherton, Rhonda and her team at nq ortho have been granting people superhuman smiles for the past 16 years.

The pursuit of picture-perfect smiles is one that has been deeply engrained in Rhonda’s roots. “My dad is an orthodontist and I actually liked having braces at school,” admits Rhonda. “My passion lies ultimately in making a difference in someone’s life. That’s when I feel I have done my job.”

Outside the office Rhonda devotes her time freely and effortlessly to the community around her. Whether it is coaching the NQ Cyclones touch football team, or extending her knowledge as a clinical tutor at James Cook University. Rhonda also participates in superhuman events like the 700km expedition adventure race XPD and Kokoda Challenge to raise money for charity. The key to Rhonda’s on-going success lies in this personal pursuit for achievement and involvement within the world around her. “I want to make the world a better place while I am in it,” Rhonda says. That is what is on our mission statement: Aim to make the world a better place than it was before, simply by being in it.”

Stories of achievement are the driving force of Rhonda’s work. Alongside the many awards and accolades on the walls at nq ortho, there is a small framed note from the mother of one of Rhonda’s patients that reads: I always knew my son was beautiful on the inside, now you have made him beautiful on the outside. “I try to do something every day that is nice for somebody else, whatever that may be,” says Rhonda.

Rhonda’s naturally competitive edge ensures nq ortho is fitted with the latest technology and cutting-edge treatments. From customised braces where the wires are designed exclusively to fit the patient’s mouth, to Invisalign treatment where an invisible mouthguard is used to straighten teeth.

It is this zest for life, devotion to the community, professional achievement and pursuit of continual improvement that sets Rhonda aside from your average orthodontist. Put simply, Rhonda is a modern-day superwoman. “I can’t do anything without an awesome team, whether it is family, work or home,” comments Rhonda. “The nq ortho team is a FANTASTIC team that allows me to do all these things.”

This perfect blend of passion, involvement and a commitment to great dental care ensures Dr Rhonda Coyne will remain the go-to gal for superhuman smiles.
