St Michael's Orthodontics Team



Most orthodontic treatment can be carried out on the NHS for patients under 18 years of age. However, since April 2006 government regulations have restricted NHS orthodontic treatment to those cases considered to have a moderate to severe need for treatment, as assessed by the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need.

All of our NHS treatment is carried out to a very high standard. However, there are limitations for NHS treatment

  • Longer waiting time before treatment can be started
  • Most appointments will be during school hours
  • Limited choice of the type of braces used


For patients who do not meet the criteria for NHS treatment or for patients who wish to start treatment sooner, we can offer the option of private treatment.

The advantages of private treatment are:

  • No waiting list for treatment
  • More flexible appointments (after school, early morning or evening appointments available)
  • Wider choice of braces (i.e. cosmetic or invisible braces)
  • Treatment is provided by a specialist orthodontist.
  • Treatment will be carried out in our new ‘state of the art’ private suite.

"It makes a refreshing change to visit a very professional practice with a very welcoming environment. We have always been dealt with in a friendly efficient manner whenever we have made visits to St Michaels. The transformation to my daughter’s teeth is amazing. It has not only changed the way she looks, but has given her more confidence and has made her want to SMILE! We will be forever grateful. Thank you so much "

I decided to treat myself to Invisalign last year for my 40th birthday. I was a little apprehensive but from the very first visit I have never looked back and now after a very quick 18 months, I am delighted with the results. Thank you for making me feel at ease ad perfecting my smile.

I cannot thank St Michaels enough for the work I had done. Going down the Invisalign path was definitely the best option for me. All the work was carried out in a very professional manner but I was also greeted by a warm, friendly staff who made me feel very welcome. Invisalign is definitely worth the money and I couldn’t recommend it enough.

E Fabricius

Really pleased with the results of my treatment especially as it has only taken 12 months. I would definitely recommend St Michaels and Invisalign. The treatment was pain free and had little impact on my day to day life (in terms of wearing braces)
