NHS Orthodontic Waiting Lists

Girl with braces

Did you know you may have to wait quite a long time for an appointment to assess whether your child qualifies for orthodontic treatment under the NHS? Even if they do qualify, there is likely to be a long wait before treatment actually begins.

Doesn’t everyone get offered braces?

Being fitted with braces is seen as a rite of passage; it is so normal as to be expected. But not everyone qualifies for treatment on the NHS, even if they are unhappy with their teeth. Anyone wishing to have NHS brace treatment has to go through a thorough assessment to see if they are eligible for the treatment before it can be provided.  It can come as a shock to discover your child does NOT qualify after such a wait.

Confident Orthodontics is a private practice run by three of the top orthodontic consultants in the South West.  We have a unique level of experience and are able to carry out these NHS pre-treatment assessments for you at a consultation which carries a deposit of just £20.  This is FULLY REFUNDABLE at your appointment.

Should you decide to go ahead with private treatment either because your child does not qualify for NHS treatment, or because you would like to start treatment straight away, we can help.  We will explain all the possible orthodontic treatment options and offer competitive prices with extended interest-free payments. You will receive a fixed price quotation for the cost of your treatment, so no surprises or hidden extra costs.  Our high quality treatments are available from as little as £75.00 a month.

Our practice is open in the evenings and at weekends to fit in with busy school time-tables and lifestyles.  If you would like to reduce the time it takes to discover whether your child qualifies for NHS treatment, or if you are keen to get treatment started as soon as possible, please call now for your consultation.
