COVID UPDATE - WE ARE OPEN

During the latest lockdown we will remain open and patients should keep their appointments as arranged. You should not attend if it’s not safe for you to do so, for example if you have symptoms of Covid-19, are waiting to receive test results, or have been asked to self-isolate. If you are unable to attend, please ring us in advance rather than not attend, so we can reallocate your appointment time.

All at Rainford Orthodontics would like to thank everyone for their patience whilst we’ve not been able to see you. We can assure you that we are fully compliant with all Covid-19 safe practice guidelines.

Welcome to Rainford Orthodontics. Our site includes detailed information for your patients about the treatments we offer, including an up-to-date fee guide. You may wish to mention our site to your patients and let them research our services for themselves?

We appreciate all private referrals. Simply fill in the online form below to send details through to us. Referral information is transmitted to a secure server. All appropriate actions have been taken to ensure the privacy of data submitted online. If you would like to refer a patient to us but are not a Dentist, please use the enquiry form on the Contact us page.

One of our friendly treatment coordinators will be in touch with your private patient to arrange a consultation for them. Alternatively, your patient can call 01744 88 2222 and speak to us directly, or fill in their details themselves on our Contact us page.

You might find it handy to add our on-line referral form to the favourites list on your surgery computers. Your staff can fill it out while the patient is in the chair.

If you would like some hard copy referral forms sent to you, let us know. Alternatively, you can download and print a paper version.

Please note that we can only accept NHS referrals via the Cheshire and Merseyside online referral system. Private referrals can be sent directly to the practice via the usual methods.

Do check our News page for latest news and upcoming events which may be of interest to you.

Thank you for your support.

Referral form

Most orthodontic treatment is carried out for children aged 10 years and over, and once the permanent dentition is established.

Exceptions to this rule, when referral in the mixed dentition is appropriate, are:

  • Anterior or posterior crossbites
  • Asymmetry in the pattern of tooth eruption (e.g. a lateral incisor erupts before a central)
  • Molars of poor prognosis (seek opinion before extracting)
  • Lack of palpable canine bulges buccally (age 10 onwards)
  • Hypodontia
  • Supernumerary teeth
  • Submerging deciduous molars
  • Impacted teeth

Otherwise, please delay referral until the first premolars have erupted.
