Routine orthodontic monitoring

Our team of independent specialist orthodontic advisers perform routine clinical orthodontic monitoring.

This helps us to:

  • monitor the quality of orthodontic treatments
  • detect and prevent fraud or other unlawful activities

We complete monitoring on a 3-year rolling cycle, reviewing 350 performers each year. Each performer we choose has a minimum of 5 cases reviewed by us over 3 years.

As part of a clinical review, we'll:

  • request a full record of the case being reviewed
  • produce a report with our findings
  • send the report to the contact holder for review
  • send the report to the responsible commissioner with the observations from the contract holder within 14 days

If you are selected for review, we’ll email instructions telling you what to do next.
