Covering Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, we are one of the South West’s largest NHS referral and emergency dental care providers. We provide urgent and emergency dental treatments for people who don’t have their own dentist, run out-of-hours surgeries and apply expert skills to treat children and adults with a range of special care needs alongside oral surgery, children’s orthodontics and treatments under general anaesthetic in a hospital setting. We also deliver NHS care and competitively priced private dentistry from practices based in the heart of their communities, we see children for free and run dedicated clinics for children in care and those experiencing homelessness.
An award-winning and innovative organisation, we function as an employee-owned community interest company and social enterprise with clear rules about reinvesting our profits back into dental service provision and our community. Our Brighter Smiles campaign brings practical tooth-brushing clubs, fluoride varnishing and oral health education to children in areas of high decay across Cornish communities, while our award-winning Smiles At Sea campaign sees our specialist team visiting harboursides across Cornwall and Devon to provide dental treatments and oral health advice to fishermen who rarely get the chance to visit a dentist.
Our investment into accessible patient facilities is transforming dentistry provision in the county for patients who need us most, with facilities not previously available locally. This includes a brand-new, purpose-designed dental centre in Bodmin which was chosen by NHS England as the county’s first Urgent Dental Care Hub in 2020, one of four that we continue to operate alongside coordinating countywide Hub referrals.
We’re a committed and friendly team that puts our people and patients first – join us in providing a much valued dental service across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
