Private Care for Adults


An increasing number of adults are undertaking orthodontic treatment to improve their smile by having their teeth straightened using discrete braces and aligners. Orthodontic treatment with aesthetic appliances are available only as private Rx.

Private Care for the under 18s


The number of under 18s being treated privately is also increasing as NHS funding is only available for cases which meet NHS criteria. Only moderate to severe cases are currently being funded and there will be a delay between your assessment visit and treatment starting.
