I've been to a private dentist recently for an individual introductory consultation and was given a quote of £3400 for braces, but recently saw this deal. I know it may not be local to most but the sheer difference in price compared to normal dentists, I thought I've got to post this. Reviews seem good too.

iDentist - spend £599 on braces which will straighten your teeth for a lifetime, and in the long run help pick up girls/guys, help you smile with confidence without being paranoid whether you've got food stuck between your teeth?,

OR (just for comparison sake)

iPhone 7 32gb - which at best could help you find your nearest dentist but sets you back the same amount as treatment in the first place?

New users - use NEW25 to get £20 off

Limited availability

Disclaimer - Not affiliated with this company in any way, neither getting commission for promoting this deal. Neither are they providing me with braces for free for posting this deal unfortunately.

My partner has been quoted £2000 at best, so deal seems exceptional. Yes, won't please many, but a handful of us will save a thousand pound.

Worth the £50 petrol for the consultation and chat at least. Thank you.

You're welcome.. HUKD users seem to disagree since deal's gone cold. Ah well, as long as it helps someone

Arches refer to top and bottom set of teeth - Retainers are worn, usually at night once treatment has finished prevent your teeth from moving back to how they were

Someone I know has just been quoted £2300 privately! But it is for clear/white ones... I'm sure they'll still be visible though!

It depends on the severity of your teeth. I've got metal braces on and was told the clear braces would not do the job.

You do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment if, when your treatment starts, you are:
•under 18
•under 19 and in full-time education
•pregnant or you’ve had a baby within the 12 months before treatment starts
•staying in an NHS hospital and the hospital dentist carries out your treatment
•an NHS Hospital Dental Service outpatient (although you may have to pay for your dentures or bridges)

You can also get free NHS dental treatment if, when the treatment starts or when you’re asked to pay:
•you’re included in an award of Income Support, income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit guarantee credit or Universal credit (check entitlement after October 31 2015)
•you’re named on, or entitled to, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
•you’re named on a valid HC2 certificate

If you're named on a valid HC3 certificate, you may not have to pay for all your NHS dental treatment. HC2 and HC3 certificates are issued under the NHS Low Income Scheme.

If you receive any of the following benefits you will not be exempt from paying for NHS dental treatment unless you also fall under one of the categories listed above:
•Incapacity Benefit
•contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
•contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance
•Disability Living Allowance
•Council Tax Benefit
•Housing Benefit
•Pension Credit savings credit

Proof of your entitlement

You’ll be asked to show your dentist written proof that you’re entitled to financial help with dental treatment. This will vary depending on your circumstances. To check what documents you need, see the NHS HC11 leaflet: Help with health costs (PDF, 452kb).

NHS Low Income Scheme

The NHS Low Income Scheme provides financial help to people not exempt from charges, but who may be entitled to full or partial help with healthcare costs if they have a low income. Anyone can apply as long as they don’t have savings or investments over the capital limit. In England, the capital limit is £16,000 (or £23,250 if you live permanently in a care home).

Help is based on a comparison between your weekly income and assessed requirements at the time the claim is made. Entitlement broadly follows Income Support rules to decide how much, if anything, you have to pay towards your healthcare costs, including dental treatment.

The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) website has more information about the NHS Low Income Scheme, including how to apply.

I had a brace when I was a child but had it removed a few months early (I didn't want to go to High School with metal braces!). Because of this, I have a large gap to the left side of my front tooth. I do actually work and have a tax credit exemption certificate for NHS medical treatment. However, a few years ago, I asked my dentist (who has private patients as well as NHS ones) if I could have a brace just to finish off what was not completed all those years ago - I have a gap to the left and my two front teeth overlap slightly, so there is space for the teeth to be pulled sideways if that makes sense - however, my dentist refused point blank to refer me for a brace. Has anybody actually been able to get a brace on the NHS when they were an adult? Thank you.

£879 (after £20 discount) now for the full set.

There are strict criteria about NHS orthodontist, ie cosmetic, treatment. They will measure the gap or the amount your teeth stick out to calculate whether you are eligible. It's very difficult to get cosmetic dentistry on the NHS as an adult - understandably as it costs the NHS a fortune and isn't a medical necessity.

Groupon occasionally has good dentist deals but you really need to choose a dentist on the basis of quality not cheapness. Certainly I would never have teeth whitening or braces done without thoroughly checking out the practice. Also, if it isn't local you need to think about how you will feel about driving for an hour to have a painful brace sorted out.

You do not need a Hollywood Smile. Accept what you have, or start plastic surgery as well.
The current advice is you have to wear retainers for the rest of your life a few nights a week.
Is it really worth it?

I've had my top teeth done with 6 month smile. It cost me 1000 pounds and a year later they are still intact. I sleep in a retainer and it's not a pain at all.

As you get older the differences of your look make the difference. Women who've spent £1000's on their gnashers have told me they wish they'd never bothered. Bullied at school sleeping with their wives/ex's. Priceless.

Dentists are not orthodontists, I will repeat, dentists, are not orthodontists!! This deal is for cheap quick fix smile which does not address the roots of your teeth. Just the appearance. So teeth will move back after treatment.
You also cannot get orthodontic treatment on the NHS over 19 unless you have been referred by a specialist I.e you've had to had jaw surgery and require braces.

Proper orthodontists charge in the regions of thousands because it's much more complex than just straightening of teeth. Buy at your own risk.

I bought dentistry from Groupon before. Called the number, booked the appointment (way in advance), drove 1.5 hours to get there only to be told... "are you another Groupon customer? Oh dear, the firm who were renting out our clinic rooms and selling on Groupon haven't paid us, so we've ceased our relationship with them. My advice is to contact Groupon and try and get a refund". So I contacted Groupon, took weeks to get a refund and their customer service is a joke. I'd never buy dentistry via Groupon again and probably nothing else either.

Looking at the exemption list obviously pregnant women get dentistry for free. In fact pregnancy is the best career in the country at the moment. Went to school with this girl who now lives in a 5 bedroom house in Putney. 5 kids in tow. (Obviously with different dads, I mean come on she's a self respecting modern lady). So envious. Now she can have perfect teeth also.

Cosmetic dentistry is like cosmetic surgery, you want your braces fitted by an expert in treating cases such as yours, whether you have a class malocclusion, anterior/posterior cross bite, open bite, crowding etc. Most moderate to severe cases will span around 24 months+.

I would NOT recommend going to what is likely to be a newly qualified orthodontist if you have a moderate to severe problem with your teeth. If you have some minor rotations or slight crowding this may be fine. Beyond that you will not be happy with the result, and the treatment time will likely lead to unstable positioning of your teeth which will revert after treatment.

Sounds like she's turned in to a very successful woman, being able to afford to live in a 5 bed house in Putney and this while being a mother of 5. Hats off to her.

Hi, has anyone bought this deal? I'm really interested as I will need some minor orthodontic treatment in the future. I was quoted £3k for Invisalign, but that's way too much for me.

Has anyone previously bought and had treatment of this type from Goupon before?

Thank you

Yes, I did, but the person didn't actually have any work done. I'm asking people who successfully had braces from a Groupon deal

Thanks
