    I've asked and requested to have braces as I think my teeths are not straight. But the dentist thinks i do not need braces, and does not refer me to NHS. What should I do?

    Can't be that bad then, you probably think it's worse than it actually is

    They won't usually refer you if it's a minor cosmetic issue. You have to go private, & pay for the treatment yourself.
