Review of orthodontic services across Wales.

A Strategic Advisory Group has been established to produce an annual report for the Chief Dental Officer on the provision of orthodontic services in Wales. The group comprises of representatives of the profession from across Wales.  

The group will consider recommendations from:

  • The National Assembly for Wales’ Health, Wellbeing and Local Government Committee and 
  • An independent expert group established by the Welsh Government.

We have issued guidance to help support local health boards and orthodontic providers to deliver more effective orthodontic services.

Managed Clinical Networks (MCNs) have been established in South West, South East and North Wales.
