NHS treatment is fully funded for those patients under 18 years of age, who have a sufficient need for treatment as set out in the NHS index of treatment need (IOTN).
Independent treatment is for those patients under 18 years of age who do not meet the NHS criteria for treatment, or who wish for their treatment to be started immediately, without the need to go on a waiting list. Independent fees reflect a level of service equal to NHS orthodontic treatment.
Independent treatment is also open to adults who wish to use conventional ( metal ) braces.
For patients opting for private treatment we are able to offer an extensive range treatment modalities and appliance types. This includes the latest technology such as custom invisible lingual braces, Damon Clear braces, Invislalign Clear Aligners and Ice clear appliances.
Private patients also have a wider selection of appointment times available.
