NHS Treatment For Patients Age 18 & Under

Information About NHS Treatment At Smile101

NHS treatment is available to patients under the age of 18 at the time treatment starts. Having been referred to us by a general dental practitioner, patients must first qualify for treatment under the NHS assessment criteria called the IOTN. Appointment times are offered between 9.30am and 3.00pm and we use metal braces.
Due to the constraints on the NHS funding, there is a treatment waiting list for NHS patients.

Patients that DO NOT qualify for NHS treatment AND patients who DO qualify but wish to start treatment earlier are eligible and welcome to continue with treatment on a private basis. For more information on the benefits and cost associated with private orthodontic treatment visit the private treatment section.

NHS Orthodontic Treatment

We provide the same expertise treatment planning to all our patients, NHS or Private. We offer free NHS treatment to patients under the age of 18 whose orthodontic problem falls within the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Needs (IOTN) guidelines. This is also dependent on the amount of funding our practice receives and we will offer orthodontic treatment on a first come, first served basis, while funding is available. We do have a waiting list for NHS treatment and our reception staff will be able to update you on the waiting times.

What you need to pay for as an NHS patient:

  • The replacement of removable appliances, functional appliances or retainers due to loss or breakage
  • All sundries purchased
  • Sports mouthguards
