NHS treatment

At Angle House Orthodontics, we can treat patients under the age of 18-years-old on the NHS if they meet certain treatment criteria. For those that don’t, we can still provide treatment privately

What is NHS treatment?

In April 2006, the government introduced a new arrangement for National Health Service Dental treatment. All orthodontic practices in England with a contract to provide NHS treatment must comply with new criteria which is designed to prioritise treatment to those with the greatest need. This criteria is based on the Index of Orthodontic Need (IOTN). Each patient is scored in regard to their need for orthodontic treatment and those who achieve a certain score are eligible.

This arrangement also dictates the number of patients an orthodontic practice can treat under the NHS per year. Each practice has allocated funding which restricts the number of patients a practice can treat at any one time. Unfortunately, this has led to treatment waiting lists. 

Here at Angle House Orthodontics, we continue to welcome referrals for NHS treatment for children. However, because of the new contract, patients with mild irregularities, for whom orthodontic treatment would provide little dental health benefit, will not be entitled to funding under the NHS. 

How to qualify for NHS treatment

If you believe your child needs orthodontic treatment, or your dentist has referred them to us, we will conduct an initial orthodontic consultation using the Index of Orthodontic Need criteria. If your child achieves a score which indicates they are eligible for treatment under the NHS we can let you know what the waiting time will be for treatment to start. 

We do recommend that children have an early orthodontic consultation with us between the ages of eight and ten. If we detect any orthodontic problems that may be developing at this early age, we can place your child on our review list and ask you to return when they are the right age for assessment and possible treatment. 

Even if your child does qualify for orthodontic treatment under the NHS, you can still choose to have your child treated privately.

Private orthodontic treatment

Here at Angle House we can also offer independent orthodontic treatment for young patients who do not qualify for NHS treatment. Treatment may be directed for cosmetic reasons such as closing gaps or correcting mild dental irregularities. We offer easy payment plans to suit individual needs and after school appointments are available upon request. 

Is NHS treatment right for me?

Contact your nearest Angle House Orthodontics practice and our team of specialist orthodontists can book an early consultation for your child to determine if they are eligible for treatment under the NHS.
