To be eligible for treatment of orthodontics through the NHS you must be refereed to the practice by your general dentist. You must also be under the age of 18 to have treatment free of charge. There is a scale and ratio designed by the NHS that determines whether the patient case is severe enough to be covered through the NHS.
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just beneficial for teenagers and adults – it’s important for children too. That’s because, the earlier your child sees an orthodontist, the earlier any potential orthodontic problems can be identified. It is recommended that your child has their first orthodontic consultation between the age of seven and 11 while their teeth and jaws are still developing. If you would like your child to be treated at Malmin Orthodontics under the NHS please ask your dentist to refer your child to us.
