We are dedicated to providing high-quality NHS orthodontic treatment to eligible children.
NHS orthodontic treatment is free for people under the age of 18 with a clear clinical need for treatment. An NHS rating system known as the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN) is used to assess children’s eligibility for NHS treatment.
Because of the high demand for treatment, there can be a long waiting list. In order to manage our waiting list we are now running validation clinics to assess NHS eligibility and clinical priority.
The British Orthodontic Society's website has more information about the IOTN. Click here to find out more.
If your child does not qualify for NHS treatment, you can appeal via your referring dentist. Click here to find out more.
If you don't want to wait for treatment to start, or you don't qualify for free NHS treatment, you may choose to have private treatment.
