Specialist orthodontists

Over the last decade, our passion for straightening teeth has helped us to become one of the larger providers of NHS orthodontic care in the UK

About Total Orthodontics

Total Orthodontics is a growing group of specialist orthodontists and orthodontic therapists, all with one thing in common: a passion for creating confident smiles.

Since 2000, we’ve been straightening teeth for children and adults using the most up-to-date orthodontic techniques. Braces now come in all shapes, sizes and colours, and over the years we’ve seen more adults undergoing treatment, thanks to the increasing popularity of invisible braces.

We’re proud to be one of the larger providers of NHS orthodontic care in the UK, and free NHS assessments are available to anyone under 17 or under. You don’t need to be referred by your dentist, so just get in touch by phone or via our contact form.

Adult patients aged 18 or over can also benefit from a free private consultation. This is a great opportunity to find out if braces are right for you. You can ask us all your questions, and we’ll give you honest answers, including all-inclusive costs for your treatment.


What is a specialist orthodontist?

A specialist orthodontist is a dentist who has gone on to complete a three year full-time qualification in orthodontics at Masters or Doctorate level. This training includes both theory and hands-on experience in diagnosing and treating cases of all complexities.

As specialist orthodontists we only straighten teeth, this means all of our time and attention goes into increasing our knowledge of all things orthodontics – and of course treating patients.
