NHS orthodontic treatment for under 26 

Free NHS orthodontic treatment is available to everyone under the age of 26, subject to qualification. It is intended to provide treatment for those patients who need it on dental health grounds, for example such problems include protrusion of the teeth, severe mal-alignment or crowding of the teeth and congenitally missing teeth. We can also provide re-treatment for those who have had teeth straightened previously but have had minor movement of their teeth.

    NHS referrals 

    All NHS patients have to be referred by their own dentist. Once referred to us we'll complete a short assessment to see if you're eligible for NHS treatment. The vast majority of our patients qualify for NHS funding, though if you don't we have a range of private options available to help you create a smile you'll love.

      NHS treatment in Glasgow

      During your initial consultation, the Orthodontist will examine your jaws and teeth and will record a number of measurements. Eligibility on the NHS is based upon a scoring system. NHS treatment is carried out to a very high standard with routine appointments. The treatment is carried out by our Clinical Assistants/Associates and Orthodontic Therapists under the supervision of our Specialist Orthodontists.

        NHS orthodontic treatment for adults

        Those under the age of 26 are eligible for NHS treatment, subject to qualification. Please ask your dentist about the qualifying criteria or give us a call to find out more. For those who aren't offered NHS treatment we have a range of private teeth straightening options to suit you.

          Self-funded treatment

          For children that do not qualify for NHS treatment, we are pleased to offer an Independent / Self-Funded option that closely resembles the NHS fee structure. Stainless steel braces are used.

          Your treatment will be during school hours and will be carried out by one of our expert Orthodontic Therapists closely supervised by a registered Orthodontic specialist. We will not compromise on treatment outcome and you can expect the same great results.
