The treatment is limited to cases with a Dental Health Need and is free of charge. This is available to qualifying patients under 18 years of agewho have a determined need for treatment using the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need assessment tool, are highly motivated and have good dental health and hygiene.

However, if NHS treatment is not suitable, we provide Private Care for all ages offering a number of benefits such as flexible appointment times and Invisible Braces.
