Orthodontist promises highest-quality treatment at planned Scunthorpe practice

One of Britain’s leading orthodontists is aiming to put the people of Scunthorpe straight – well as least put their teeth straight.
For Dr Keith Jackson is seeking planning approval to extend his Gainsborough-based Forum practice to North Lincolnshire.
Dr Jackson, who has 25 years experience in the profession, explained: "We are planning to open a mixed private and NHS orthodontic practice, probably under the trading name of Scunthorpe Orthodontics, but this may change.
"Orthodontics is the art of straightening teeth. This will be for children under the NHS as well as privately for adults and children who don’t meet the criteria for funding.
"Anyone can have treatment as long as they have healthy teeth. We are currently treating patients from aged nine years to in their 60s.
"We are experts in this field and our success rate is very high.
"Often failure is down to non-cooperation from the patient, but that is rare.
"We will be sending a specialist orthodontic team to Scunthorpe, so residents will have the highest quality treatment. We will offer many payment plan options for patients."
Dr Jackson has earmarked a former beauty salon in the town’s Ravendale Street North for the new practice which if given approval, will create at least four new jobs.
The proposals are currently under consideration by planning officers at North Lincolnshire Council.
