The British Orthodontic Society has been continuing to raise awareness of the potential dangers of DIY Orthodontics to members of the public. An article recently appeared in The Mail on Sunday and also in the MailOnline – https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-8513571/You-save-fortune-buying-braces-online-not-smile-youre-after.html

The article was hard hitting and the BOS hope it will educate many more members of the public about the dangers of DIY Orthodontics.

Director of External Relations, Peter McCallum commented, “This has been part of a wider campaign to tackle the growing concern of DIY Orthodontics including:

  • Representation to GDC and CQC
  • The launch of SafeBrace – http://safebrace.org/ – a joint initiative with the Oral Health Foundation to offer impartial advice about orthodontic treatment
  • Liaison with all sections of the media to raise awareness

“We are working hard to get across the simple message that anyone considering orthodontics should be seeing an appropriately trained clinician.”
