Who can have Orthodontics?
Not just children! Adult Orthodontics is one of the fastest growing dental specialities, age is no barrier to improving your smile.
Tooth straightening (orthodontics) is the kindest way to improve your smile, as it is non-invasive and can give life-long results.
Sally is happy to take referrals for all types of tooth straightening, and can provide cosmetic options for patients who wish to wear more discrete braces. All treatment is on a private basis, for both adults and children. If a patient would like to have a no obligation consultation appointment to assess viability of treatment, this can be arranged without charge.
Sally is a member of the British Orthodontic Society, the Craniofacial Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and has a specialist interest in the treatment of cleft lip and palate.
