Let's face it, it’s never nice going to see the dentist and we understand that which is why we go the extra mile to make you feel at ease, especially if you have not been to the dentist for a while. Why not meet the team and try our Meet & Greet service, just fill in the form and we’ll give you a call to meet one of the team. It’s a great way to get to meet your new dental carer if you are feeling nervous about the treatment you may need, we won’t charge you for the appointment and we won't be doing any treatment. If your happy, we can then move on to booking you in for a consultation or even a checkup, but it's up to you, there is no obligation and we will never provide any treatment that you do not want. So, just give us a call now or fill in the form, it really is that simple!

I feel really privileged to be able to do what I do. I know not many people enjoy their job as much as I do and even though I have been doing this since I was a schoolboy, I still get very excited about it today. I love meeting all the wonderful people that come to my clinic and I like being able to help people. I get a huge sense of achievement when I provide a new denture, knowing that in many cases I have changed someone's life whether it’s because they can finally eat their food better or because they’ve been given the confidence to smile again.
I completed my Dental Nursing Apprenticeship at Smiles Centre in 2015 and have been promoted to Practice Manager within eighteen months.
I always considered my job very rewarding and having such an amazing team makes it even more enjoyable! We are always here to help so if there is anything you would like to discuss, come and find me!

I started working at Smiles Centre April 2016 as a Trainee Dental Nurse and find that it is a very rewarding job to have. The team here are great and work well together so that we can give the best care to our patients.
I love being able to really get to know our patients so that it is more than just a trip to the dentist for them which helps to create a nice atmosphere here at Smiles Centre.
I qualified as a nurse in May 2014 and joined Smiles Centre in August 2016 and can honestly say it is a place like no other. I enjoy working with the team and am developing my skills every day. I enjoy helping every patient to have the best possible dental experience and I am also looking forward to have a long future in dentistry with a lot more qualifications.

I qualified from Cardiff in 2012 and gained membership to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, Glasgow within 2 years. I have worked in practice, hospital and community/domiciliary environments and I have further qualifications in dental public health which help me treat anxious patients and provide long term preventative care. To me there is nothing more satisfying than making patients feel at ease with their entire experience at Smiles Centre. In my spare time I enjoy motor sports, I love animals, and my favourite food is cheese. I don’t like celery or being late!
Director & Partner
Smiles Centre is a great place to work, Simon and I have spent the last four years putting together the best possible team because we realise that to have a strong team you need to have the right people with the right attitude. We also know that to give the very best quality of care it helps to have a very diverse range of skill sets so that every team member compliments the next. We are also constantly striving to improve the experience of our patients by going above and beyond what is expected of us. Delivering a great service every time is an incredible feeling.
