I've been referred to a orthodontics
and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how long it took before they could go see a orthodontics if they have been on the NHS waiting list before.

thank you

I only waited about 3 weeks between referral and orthadontist appointment but I think I was very lucky to get in at a time the wait list was usually short (Jan/Feb/March time). Had braces fitted approx 2 weeks after appointment so all pretty quick! My sister had to wait at least a few months for hers (referral to orthadontist) if I remember rightly so so definitely varies for whatever reason! Did your dentist advise on waiting times for your area?

Takes bloody ages.

Currently undergoing treatment for my underbite, the distance in time between asking my dentist for a referral and getting a letter acknowledging my referral was at least 6-8 months, had at least 4 or 5 VERY spaced out appointments before finally getting my lower brace fitted and had my upper brace fitted a few months after that.

Overall the amount of time between going to the dentist to get a referral and having my upper brace fitted was at least a year and half, may have been a few months longer than that.

I don't even know when my surgery's due to happen but it won't be before well into 2019.
