Children who qualify for NHS orthodontic treatment are likely to have issues including:
We use the IOTN (Index of Treatment Need) to assess the need and eligibility of children seeking NHS orthodontic treatment. This is an objective and reliable method to determine those who will benefit most from treatment, and we are extremely well practised in its use. It involves looking at the dental health and aesthetic components of your child’s smile and grading these to ascertain if they qualify for NHS treatment.
If your child does not qualify for NHS orthodontic treatment, we can still offer our services, but this would be on a private basis.
We are happy to arrange an NHS orthodontic assessment for all children requiring it, but please note that to be seen under the NHS, your child’s general dentist must refer them to our care. Once we have received the referral, we invite you to contact us to schedule an appointment for your assessment. There is currently a 12 month waiting time for an initial assessment & a 3 year waiting time to start treatment (for non-urgent cases).
If you have had an NHS assessment there are a variety of scenarios which can occur following your appointment:
