NHS Treatment

All assessments for NHS treatment must be referred to us by your dentist. Children under the age of 18 years with a clear clinical need will qualify for NHS treatment. During the orthodontic assessment we will determine whether you will qualify for NHS treatment which will be measured using the index of orthodontic treatment need (IOTN).

Treatment normally lasts 18-24 months and you will attend the practice every 6-8 weeks.
