The assessment of orthodontic provision is important to determine if treatment was necessary and undertaken appropriately. The ICON objectively quantifies orthodontic treatment need, complexity and outcome and is a valuable occlusal index in the assessment effectiveness of orthodontic care. It is possible to develop cost-effectiveness models by analysing the costs and effectiveness of orthodontic treatment. Several methods are illustrated to compare the orthodontic provision of specialist orthodontists.
