Hello Doctor, My daughter is born 1993 and desperately needs to have braces fitted. She is bullied at school for her bad teeth and it is affecting her badly. She is currently in sixth form and studying her A levels, which is stressful enough as it is without the added stress of her anxiety over the appearance of her teeth which is only worsened by the bullying. She fears if her teeth aren’t fixed soon then the bullying will continue at university and for the rest of her life. I had once tried to get her the dates for braces which I did get but then I moved to a different place and I could not attend the appointment.
Please advise me! Do you think, her being in full time education still and her having severely crooked teeth,if she could get an exception from NHS .
I am a single parent and cannot afford to buy expensive braces. Please guide Many Thanks, I look forward to hearing your response.
