We will be contacting you to make you aware that if you require orthodontic services will receive your treatment through a new provider from April 1 2020.
Our current provider of orthodontic services, The Orthodontic Centre in Carmarthen, will no longer be providing these NHS services after March 31 2020. However, we have secured orthodontic services with three new orthodontic practices in Pembroke Dock, Carmarthen and Swansea.
These new contracts provide the opportunity for better access to orthodontic services for you across Hywel Dda.
If you require this specialist service it will be designated to the practice closest to your home.
The practices are:
We wish to reassure you that we have a responsibility to ensure that if you are a patient who is currently undergoing treatment will continue to receive orthodontic care in one of the three practices.
We will be contacting all patients in writing who are currently receiving care with The Orthodontic Centre to discuss the transfer of your care.
Jill Paterson, Director of Primary Care, Community and Long-term Care for Hywel Dda University Health Board: “The provision of orthodontic services in three locations for Hywel Dda residents allows for better access to services for patients closer to their homes.
“In addition to this the health board has invested additional funding to improve waiting times.”
If you are concerned, please contact 01267 229696 to leave a voicemail and this will be responded to by a member of the Dental Services Team.
