Orthodontic department in Royal Bournemouth Hospital

Thank you for your patience whilst the Orthodontic department has been closed to routine appointments. We are now in the process of rebooking appointments and the team is working hard to ensure you are seen as soon as possible. We are closely following guidelines to ensure the safety and protection of staff and patients. This means we are booking less face to face appointments per week and in the first instance, we may ask you to attend a video consultation.

It is really important that you attend your appointment via video or face to face.
If there is any reason you are unable to attend, you must make us aware at the earliest opportunity so we can offer the appointment to another patient.

We will continue to provide advice for brace emergencies and support you through video consultation as a first option. You will need to call the department on the following telephone number 01202 704694 and leave a message with your name, and contact number. A member of the team will call you back as soon as possible.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
Miss Ellie Thickett – Lead Consultant & Rachel Crooks – Service Manager

Please contact the department before you carry out the advice attached below – if we are able to, we will guide you through this via video consultation: Advice for patients
