NHS availability

All patients can have an NHS consultation if 17 or under and referred by their dentist.

At the consultation you will be told if brace treatment for your particular problem will be paid for by the NHS.

The NHS will cover the cost of treatment if your problem is sufficiently severe but not if it is mild.

Currently most patients who are 17 or under and have a tooth problem that is worth correcting, can get NHS funding for their treatment.

**Currently, you are looking at 6-8 weeks for an NHS consultation appointment and if you are ready and qualify for NHS treatment, there is currently a wait of 9 months to start treatment with fixed braces. This is due to an increased number of referrals and our NHS contract only allows us to treat a certain number of cases per financial year.  However, approximately 70% of patients seen upon first referral are not usually ready for treatment, so please do not let this deter you from being initially referred to Witney Brace Place.

Ask your dentist to arrange a referral if you are aged under 18,

or phone to arrange a private appointment without a referral.
