Is orthodontic treatment free for children?

23 May 2019

The NHS provides free orthodontic care under certain conditions for children under the age of 18. The case of each child patient is rated on a system called Index for Orthodontic Treatment Need, or IOTN. Your child will typically need to have an IOTN of 4 or 5 to qualify, but in some cases, an IOTN of 3 is accepted.

All other cases will require private treatment. Contact Pedro for more information about special rates and payment plans for young patients.
