Private or NHS

05c Clarity man

At Cygnet Orthodontics we believe in the highest standard of care for all our patients whether private or NHS.

NHS treatment

NHS treatment is available to patients under the age of 18 at the time treatment starts. Having been referred to us by a general dentist practitioner, patients must first qualify for treatment under the NHS assessment criteria called the IOTN. Appointment times are offered between 9.30am and 3.00pm and we use metal braces.

Unfortunately due to the constraints on the NHS funding there is a treatment waiting list for NHS patients.

Private treatment

Independent Patients – under 18 years old

Children and teenagers can see the Orthodontist sooner as an ‘Independent Patient’, and not need to wait on the NHS waiting list. There are several benefits for choosing this private patient plan option:

In general, we use high quality metal braces for our Independent Patients which may have coloured elastics if required. A clear ceramic brace options can be added with an additional fee upgrade according to the types of brackets used.

Private Patients – adults and children

For all our Private Patients there is the ability to come to visit the practice at any time we open. You can book multiple appointments ahead, subject to appointment availability, and have the choice of all the braces that we offer in the practice e.g. clear braces, invisible clear aligners for example Invisalign, or invisible braces on the inside of the teeth such as Incognito.

This service is seen as the premier service and the benefits are reflected in the investment for the treatment.


Payment for your treatment plan both as an ‘Independent’ or ‘Private’ Patient, can be made with a 20% deposit which is payable at the start of treatment with the remainder paid by interest free monthly standing orders over the treatment time.

Alternatively the full fee for your treatment can be paid up front, minus an administration fee for standing order payments.

We accept all major debit cards e.g. Master Card and Visa, but not American Express.
