How our orthodontic service is changing

Advice for patients

Cleveland Orthodontics are looking forward to welcoming back our patients as soon as we can

The way that we will be running our service will be different for the foreseeable future. Our two key principles are:

We have a large number of patients who are in treatment with braces. Unfortunately it will not be possible to see everyone all at once. In line with NHS guidance, we are prioritising patients who have been having problems with their braces during lockdown to start with. We will then send for all other patients in turn.
