Welcome to the Orthognathic Psychology Service (OPS)
We work alongside Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeons and Orthodontists to provide psychological support to individuals undergoing orthognathic treatment. The service is based at two hospital sites, the Royal London Dental Hospital (Whitechapel) and Whipps Cross hospital (Leytonstone).
Our aim is to provide a psychological pathway of care for service users, at all points along their Orthognathic journey. This may involve assessing appearance concerns, expectations and understanding of surgery, as well as any mental health concerns that may impact on the treatment process.
We offer support to service users and their families to meet individual needs, and improve treatment outcomes.
