About Smile:Together

Our mission at Smile Together is to tackle oral health inequality, creating healthier happier communities.

Covering Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, we are one of the South West’s largest NHS referral and emergency dental care providers. Our West Country Dental Care team 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. Under our Brighter Dental brand we provide NHS care and competitively priced private dentistry from practices based in the heart of their communities, and we see children for free.

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. We opened a brand-new, purpose-designed accessible dental centre in May 2019, transforming dentistry provision in the county for patients who need us most.

Our services are based on compassion, respect, honesty and flexibility and our team of highly experienced, caring professionals take the time to ensure patients receive the best care to suit their individual needs, whilst offering reassurance and support throughout their treatment. We’re a committed and friendly team that puts our people and patients first.
