Banbury Orthodontics, working within Bloxham Dental @ Banbury has acquired an NHS contract to provide Orthodontic Services to patients under the age of 18, who meet the Index of Orthodontic Need (IOTN) criteria for NHS treatment. This service commenced on 1st April 2019.
Banbury Orthodontics was established in January 2019 when specialist Orthodontist, Nichola Sant, joined Catherine Brady and Caitriona Walsh, directors of Bloxdent Ltd. Their shared commitment to giving patients the best possible care and the desire to be able to provide Orthodontic services locally, led to a natural and timely partnership.
Orthodontics is a specialist field within dentistry dealing with the realignment of crooked teeth. At Banbury Orthodontics, we offer a range of treatments to straighten your teeth. Braces don’t necessarily have to be unsightly ‘train-tracks’; New technologies mean that we can offer solutions such as near-invisible aligners that work quickly to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Straighter teeth also means better oral and gum health.
Book a complimentary consultation with our orthodontist and discover straighter teeth and a more attractive smile.

My name is Nichola and I am the specialist orthodontist at Bloxham Dental@Banbury. I enjoy treating both adults and children to help achieve straight teeth.
I studied at Bristol University and qualified in 2000. Since then I have successfully passed the Membership in Dental Surgery examination awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. In addition, I undertook postgraduate Orthodontic training at The Royal London Hospital, London, where I was awarded the degree of Master of Science in Orthodontics (St Mary’s University, London). After 3-years of full time study I was awarded the Membership in Orthodontics from the Royal College of Surgeons of England allowing me to become a registered Orthodontic Specialist with the General Dental Council.
I am a member of the British Dental Association and the British Orthodontic Society. As well as being a committee member of the Orthodontic Specialist group, I also sit on the Specialist Advisory Group for Orthodontics. I also work for the NHS as an Orthodontic Advisor.
I worked at a number of practices in West London before moving back to the Midlands where I was brought up. I keep myself at the cutting edge of orthodontics with peer review sessions with my local orthodontic colleagues and with regular attendance at training courses and national/international conferences.
I enjoy getting to know my patients well over the course of treatment. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my young family, reading and looking after my chickens.
