At Smiles Better we work closely with a full range of specialists.
Our specialists have the expertise, precision and decades of training and experience to ensure that you receive the best clinical care that is possible, and enables us to provide the full range of options that are available to you.
Patients can be referred by their own dentist for non-routine, more difficult and complex treatments.
Patients can also self refer for a second opinion or for treatments that their own practice may not be able to provide.
We would like to assure you of our personal commitment to provide the very highest standards of modern dentistry.
