  • About This Course

Presented by Richard Jones in collaboration with BOS (British Orthodontic Society)

This is the second recorded webinar in a series of five designed for General Dental Practitioners, but especially suitable for recently qualified dentists and those new to working in UK general practice.

The course will boost your skills in orthodontic diagnosis and referral. It will also demonstrate what orthodontics can offer you and your patients, by providing you with an overview of the scope of contemporary orthodontic treatment, including ‘quick’ orthodontic systems.

Learning Outcomes


To discuss:

  • Which patients will benefit from orthodontic treatment on health grounds and the thresholds for treatment within the NHS
  • The key features to monitor during the developing dentition
  • When the optimal time is to refer patients and which patients may benefit from interceptive care
  • The key features of the NHS orthodontic care pathway and common referral mechanisms
  • The differences between primary and secondary care provider settings and the ideal service provider to refer to


On completion of this webinar you will be able to effectively monitor the developing dentition and triage patients for orthodontic problems and understand the optimal timing and provider setting for an orthodontic referral.
