Orthodontic Examination



We will do a full Orthodontic Examination and if required we will take Xrays

Our Orthodontic Consultation with our specialist Orthodontist is just £65.00

There is a charge for Xrays and the Xrays are optional.

We offer a Free Orthodontic Examination if you bring a Written Treatment Plan from an Orthodontist which is less than 3 months old. We encourage new patients to our Orthodontic Practice, to bring their x-rays with them.

At the end of this visit we will give you a Written Orthodontic Treatment Plan with costs and options for your Orthodontic Treatment

We usually arrange another appointment (no charge) to discuss the Orthodontic Treatment and Payment Plan

Reasonable Fees and Payment Plans




Orthodontics is usually quite expensive and we realise that patients make their decision on costs as well as quality.

We also recognise that all the local Orthodontists offer high quality care so it makes sence to "Shop Around"

A major reason for choosing us is that we are offer late evening and weekend Appointments at no extra charge.

We will normally at least match another Orthodontic Treatment Plan Costing.

Also because we are a "One Stop" Dental Practice we can offer the full range of treatments and patients avoid the extra costs of going to various diferent practices.

We also offer a range of Payment Plans including Interest Free Credit

Consultations

We offer an Orthodontic Consultation (with Specialist)

We have to say that without x-rays it is normally not usually possible to give any definitive treatment plan, and/or have any idea of what is going on under the teeth, and/or know what the condition of the periodontal structures are.

Therefore we encourage patients to bring any previous x-rays with them or we can, if needed, take them ourselves.

Costs associated with Orthodontic and Cosmetic Consultations explained

Consultation £65.00
Small Radiographs £9.00 each if required
Large Radiographs £25.00 each if required
The consultation is normally with one of our seniors dentists. They will be able to discuss a range of options and alternatives.
