Adults and Children
You may have seen children and adults wearing braces but have you wondered why? Orthodontic treatment straightens teeth and improves smiles; you too can have a beautiful smile.
Orthodontic treatment can be funded in several ways:
- Private Contract, flexible interest free payment plans available - see Fee Scale for details
- NHS treatment is free for qualifying problems but there are charges for lost and broken appliances
- Certain health insurance companies (please consult your provider for relavant paperwork)
NHS Orthodontic Treatment
NHS orthodontic treatment funded by the Thames Valley Area Team is available (qualifying problems only) for patients under the age of 18 at the start of treatment.
Please ask you general dental practitioner for a referral for an NHS assessment. Please note, mild, cosmetic treatments are not funded by the NHS.
