COVID-19 Customer Update

With the continued restrictions, please be assured we are still open – checking braces and seeing new patients! Adults and children alike. Please contact us if you wish to speak to an orthodontist to help with your query.

However, outside of office hours and in case of needing to contact an orthodontist, please phone the practice as usual on 02825655500. You will then hear the correct emergency number to phone.

Your next visit to Orthoplus will be different in some ways – see video. We will contact you directly to go through the new steps to keep you, the staff and all our families still safe.  You will be asked to attend by yourself, if possible, and there will be hand sanitisers, social distancing and temperature checks on arrival. Please arrive on time as appointments may take longer now if more PPE is required. Also, call us before entering and have the teeth cleaned, as there will be no use of the toilets at the practice until further notice.

Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding. COVID-19 is requiring us to change the way we work and treat our patients. Work with us to keep everyone safe

In the meantime, please look after yourselves and the braces!


If you need to get in touch for orthodontic emergencies, call the practice on 02825655500 for the latest up to date information. Please also use the link: to the British Orthodontic Society website to check for DIY help and hints if this can be of any help!

We sincerely hope all our patients and families continue to stay safe.

Many thanks,
Orthoplus Staff
