Bedford Braces is a well established Specialist Orthodontic Practice situated in Central Bedford, providing treatment for children and adults.
[05/29/20] 🔆The Government announced that dentists can reopen on 8th June. We will be in contact with appointments in due course. We have a lot of changes to make and PPE is in very short supply. It will take some time for us to get around to seeing everyone in the first instance and so we ask for your patience at this difficult time. 🔆
Keeping safe during your visit to the orthodontist when we are able to see you again
To support our new patient video, we have also produced a poster with the same messages as those contained in the video that you can send to patients, use on social media or display in your practice or hospital.
You can access all our new patient resources here: https://bit.ly/2APeU8B
This is to give patients as idea of how things may be when we reopen. Things will need to be done differently.
We have created a new patient video to help prepare patients for changes they might expect to see once practices and hospital departments start to reopen.
This video was created with the help of the #KeepStokeSmiling team at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. The content is suitable for both primary and secondary care.
Please share this video with your patients.
You can also access the video from our YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/X7TZQf1X-oA
If you would like help and advice on how to produce your own patient videos, please comment below and we will get one of the BOS Comms Team to get in touch.
‼️If you have a broken or lost retainer and you have the model of your teeth (unbroken), our lab will now be able to make you a new one for a small charge. If we have a scan of your teeth, they can be made from that too. Give Colin a call

[02/20/18] ❗️WARNING. The machine at the St. Peter’s Car Park where lots of our patients park, has been out of order for 10 days - not accepting payment unless you use your phone to pay. We’d advise parking in either Rothsay Road or Bushmead Avenue to avoid the parking machine nightmare 👍
The British Orthodontic Society has launched a campaign 'Hold that Smile', backed up by video and animation, the intention is to generate awareness that retainers are for life.
