Children’s Orthodontics


Get a Free Early-Years Assessment for Your Loved-One

Dental development during your child’s growing years can have lifelong oral health impacts.

Early interceptive care from SmileHQ allows our specialist-led team to plan treatments to support natural, healthy development alongside discreet orthodontic treatments for teens and young people.

And because we believe effective care starts early, we offer a free assessment with our orthodontic team for every SmileHQ patient under 16.

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends the first visit by age seven. However, visiting at age 4-6 is common—especially if your child’s dentist has cause for concern.


Early Interceptive Orthodontics

Around the ages of six to seven, when young people’s adult dentition begins to develop, are particularly crucial years.

Spotting developmental challenges could save your loved one from needing expensive orthodontic treatment later in life as simple problems turn into more severe issues like protruding teeth and malocclusion.

Early interceptive orthodontics ensures the healthy development of your child’s teeth and jaws so they can get on with growing up.

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends an assessment before age seven. However, it’s often possible to spot potential problems from as early as four years of age. Whatever your loved ones’ age, peace of mind with a free early assessment from SmileHQ won’t cost you a penny.

A free assessment at SmileHQ can put your child’s oral health back on track

Teen & Young People’s Orthodontics

Each year in the UK, around 20,00 children and young people are told their orthodontic issues aren’t severe enough to qualify for NHS treatment.

Those who are lucky enough to meet the NHS’ strict criteria often face waits of up to two years or longer to receive vital basic care—usually with intrusive fixed braces.

If your child has been refused care or is currently on the waiting list, you’ll know how frustrating it is to leave your child’s wellbeing in NHS hands.

A free assessment at SmileHQ can put your child’s oral health back on track, ensuring healthy development, perfect aesthetics, and discreet treatment that won’t leave them feeling self-conscious in the classroom.

Why SmileHQ?

Getting the best support possible is vital to your child’s health—now and in the future. Here are a few reasons to trust your loved ones’ care to SmileHQ.

Discreet Treatment

We use clear aligners and discreet clear or ceramic braces that won’t leave your child afraid to show off their smile.

Diverse Options

Couldn’t recommend Pola and his team enough. Pola is thorough and explains everything and makes you feel in safe hands. The girls are also amazing, massive thanks to Hannah for everything she helped me set my app up and the aftercare is amazing. Claire is so lovely and personable every visit and Sophie is brilliant during my sessions with Pola.

Wow, what can I say about Smile HQ. It is a team full of experience but not just in their field of dentistry, but their customer service and their kindness to patients is second to none. Dr. Vish is amazing with the care and detail of his planning for your treatment and gets you that forever smile at the end of treatment. Would highly recommend this clinic and their specialist services in cosmetic dentistry and Implants.

This is a wonderful practice. I was seen at short notice because I was in pain and could not get an appointment with my regular dentist and it was well worth the one hour journey to get there. Dr Sasha, Nurse Stephie and Holly and Claire on reception could not have been more welcoming and kind. I had x Ray and antibiotics and everything was unhurried and explained in detail. Thank you all so much.
