Following advice, from the NHS and British Orthodontic Society, Smiles Orthodontic Practice is closed to patients. All appointments for the foreseeable future have been cancelled.
If you have a fixed brace and wear elastics please continue with these. Leave a phone message if you run out so we can send you some more. Removable appliances and retainers should continue to be worn as instructed.
If you have a problem with your orthodontic appliance there is guidance in the Orthodontic Emergencies Protocol on the British Orthodontic Society website.
At this stage please only contact the practice if you have a concern or orthodontic emergency that is causing discomfort. Unfortunately we are unable to replace brackets, repair broken removable appliances or provide replacement retainers.
These are extraordinary times and the safety of our patients, staff and families is paramount.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Smiles as soon as possible.
The Smiles Team
Whether you have been referred by your dentist, or you choose yourself to be assessed by the orthodontist, then a private consultation will be both informative and tailored to you.
During the assessment the orthodontist will examine and diagnose your condition and listen to your needs and wishes. Your oral health will be assessed as it is essential for patients to be dentally fit before commencement of any treatment. Intra oral (close up) photos of your teeth and x-rays may be taken and from there, a suitable treatment plan is derived by the orthodontist and fully discussed with you. Estimation to the cost of your proposed orthodontic care is also provided along with payment options.
Appointments are available at times to suit you, including into the evening on Mondays.
The cost of the orthodontic assessment consultation is £95, however if you decide to go ahead with treatment we will deduct this charge from the total cost of your treatment.
To book your consultation or to find out more please telephone 01767 317777
