We offer our patients


Orthodontist WoodfordBraces are the most popular solution for bringing misaligned teeth into the correct position within the jaw. There are several different types of dental brace so your orthodontist will discuss the best type of brace and course of treatment for you.

FIRST Ortho designs, manufactures and supplies

  • Ceramic braces, made from a transparent ceramic material so older teens and adults can realing their teeth discreetly
  • Functional braces, which correct a bite problem called overjet; FIRST Ortho is among the few UK orthodontists to offer functional braces
  • Incognito lingual braces, which lie behind the teeth making them even more discreet than ceramic braces
  • Invisalign braces, which offer children and adults with milder misalignments a noninvasive way to correct their bite
  • Bonded and removable retainers, which correct and maintain the arch shape of teeth – we can make retainers for up to eight teeth rather than the usual six
  • Steel and Damon braces, which are the familiar “train track” braces often seen on younger children

What Our Patients Say

Here’s what some of our Woodford orthodontic patients have to say about us.

I highly recommend Dr Patel and First Ortho!
Fatima Awow

For anyone that is considering orthodontics, regardless of age, I highly recommend Dr Patel and First Ortho! I was actually a patient here almost 10 years ago and I decided to revisit due to their high quality of care.

I feel so lucky to have Mr Patel.
Claire Franklin

I personally don’t think you really wont find another orthodontist as exceptional as Mr Patel. I would recommend him and his team to anyone and will use him for both my children when they need treatment.

Dr Patel & his team couldn’t do more for me!
Claudia Leachman

The change in my teeth already is amazing (especially my lower arch) and I’d recommend this practise to anyone looking for a highly talented orthodontist.

I personally recommend him
Paris Rathore

Dr Patel has been my orthodontist for years and I personally recommend him as he is the best at what he does. How he cares for your teeth and the excellence in the whole orthodontist surgery itself.

Life-saving for my teeth

The advice & tips given was life-saving for my teeth and guided me on Proper Oral Healthcare. 10/10 Orthdontist, defo recommended!

Always so welcoming & very thorough

My son can see my beaming smile instead of me covering my face, hiding what used to be my biggest insecurity. So thankful for all of Dr Patels care & service.

Here to make Woodford smile

FIRST Ortho practice offers Woodford patients of all ages a comprehensive range of orthodontic care.

Offering cosmetic dental treatments too

Cosmetic bondingOrthodontist Woodford

Cosmetic bonding, or composite bonding, can fill in gaps and restore the appearance of chipped or discoloured teeth with a resin material.

Composite bonding doesn’t involve any drilling, so it’s less invasive than vaneers or crowns

Teeth whitening

Many of our Woodford patients visit us for teeth whitening treatments and as long the discolouration isn’t due to decay, we can gently lift your teeth by a few shades

Orthodontics is about so much more than a smile

Of course, a great smile is an invaluable asset, but orthodontics doesn’t stop there. There’s a lot more going behind the scenes in this branch of dentistry.

Your smile is just the visable aspect of orthodontic treatment

Misaligned teeth need correction even if they’re at the back of your mouthas misalignment can cause unusual stress and wear which often leads to cracks and other damage.

Misaligned teeth are harder to clean

Misaligned, or maloccluded, teeth are often recessed behind their neighbouring teeth, which makes them harder to floss and brush. Eventually, this can lead to stains, dental decay and even gum disease.

Good dental hygiene is the basis of your smile

Brushing your teeth twice a day is vital to maintain your smile and FIRST Ortho is ready to help with anything that a new toothbrush and regular flossing can’t.
