At Contour Orthodontists we are proud to be one of the largest providers of NHS orthodontic treatment in Hampshire.
If eligible, the NHS currently provides fully funded orthodontic treatment for children under the age of 18 years. An NHS assessment is offered free of charge at Contour Orthodontists following a referral from you General Dentist.
Orthodontic treatment is funded by the NHS for patients under the age of 18 who have a clear health need for treatment.
Our Specialist Orthodontists will asses the needs of every individual patient based upon a set of strict criteria laid out by the NHS, this system is called the Index of Orthodontic Need.
If your child is undergoing treatment with us are considering adult orthodontics, we are pleased to offer the parents of our existing patients a full complimentary consultation with one of our Specialists.
At Contour Orthodontists we welcome new NHS patients to the practice daily. To arrange an NHS new patient assessment simply speak to your General Dentist and request for a referral to be sent on your behalf via the online portal.
We do our best to accommodate as many patients as possible, however spaces are limited. As soon as we receive your referral you will be contacted by a member of our friendly reception team to let you know you have been placed on our waiting list. We will then contact you in due course to book your initial assessment with one of our Specialist Orthodontists.
In the event that your child is not eligible for NHS funded treatment there are other options available. At Contour Orthodontists we pride ourselves on our wide range of private treatment options all tailored to suit the individual.
These range from traditional metal fixed braces to removable clear aligners. All our private treatments includes a start date to suit you, an oral hygiene home care pack, bonded and removable retainers for both arches at the end of treatment, plus 2 years of aftercare once your braces come off.
