At Devon Square Orthodontics Ltd we offer NHS treatment to patients under the age of 18 years using the appliances developed with the latest technology. A referral from your general dentist is required before we can arrange a NHS Consultation.
However we are required to work within strict guidelines about who is eligible for NHS orthodontic treatment, the link below provides information about the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN).

Better Teeth for Life
As part of national smile month 2017, the British Orthodontic Society published a new online resource that highlights the positive impact that orthodontic treatment can have on both oral health and emotional wellbeing.
The BOS guide to 'Better Teeth for Life' also includes practical tips on the patient’s role in achieving excellent results
What to do if you have a problem with your brace.
If you have a problem with your brace and need an appointment to be seen, please contact us in the morning and we will aim to book you an appointment to be seen on the same day or within 24 hours. Please be aware some brace problems can be dealt with at home or are ok to wait until your next appointment.
