Refer to Us
Wickford Dental Practice welcomes referrals for NHS Orthodontic treatment for qualifying people under the age of 18 years old. For over 18's and people that do not qualify for free treatment we only carryout treatment on a private basis.
We are a welcoming team treating patients in a warm and friendly environment. We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards and accommodating individual needs. All of our Clinicians and Dental Care Professionals have been enhanced CRB checked and are registered with the General Dental Council. If you are considering referring to us here are a few reasons why you should.
We promise to:
Return any radiographs, photographs or study models that you provide to assist us in treatment planning. Always communicate with you and keep you fully updated and informed of your patients progress. Always advise your patients to continue seeing you for their regular dental appointments throughout the course of their Orthodontic treatment. Discharge your patient back to you at the end of Orthodontic treatment for continuing care.
Our NHS Orthodontists can be seen by dentist referral only. We welcome NHS Orthodontic referrals from other practices. You can refer patients by downloading and printing a referral form and emailing the form to our NHS email address (dental.practiceV592@nhs.net). Please only email us referrals using your practice NHS.net account.
On receipt of the referral form an appointment for a consultation with the Orthodontist will be sent to the patient within 3 working days. We aim to see the patient within 6 weeks for their initial consultation. On the day of the consultation the Orthodontist will assess whether or not the person qualifies for NHS Orthodontic treatment. NHS Orthodontic treatment is free for qualifying people under the age of 18 with a clear clinical need for treatment. A treatment plan will be put together by the Orthodontist who will discuss whether braces are required, the options available for correcting crooked, crowded and overlapping teeth, whether any teeth will need to be removed and what happens next. Our Orthodontists are more than happy to answer any questions that you have.
If the patient does not qualify for free NHS Orthodontic treatment they may choose to have treatment on a private basis. Our Orthodontists are more than happy to discuss this option.
