Hey could anyone clear up how I can get braces for free on the NHS?

I am completely clueless on the matter- was just googling stuff but it still seems a little vague to me.

-How to I go about getting an appointment to ensure that I need braces?
-Do I have to bring anything to prove I am in the midst of 'full-time education'?

Also, what do they mean by 'new children' when they say the following:
NOT Accepting new children aged 0-18 years for NHS treatment

well by not accepting new children aged 0-18 I would think that it means exactly what it says - ie. they arent offering NHS treatment to people not currently undergoing it.

The standard proceedure however is to get a letter of referral by your ordinary dentist to the orthodontist and just take it from there.

All I remember is my dentist referring me to the local one as said. I don't remember any paperwork.

I *think* you have to go to your dentist first and they'll send you to an orthodontist- like when a GP sends you to a hospital....Though I could be completely wrong
