Who we are

{my}dentist is the UK’s largest network of dental practices across the UK. Every year, we see more than 4 million patients and help thousands of people achieve their dream smiles with our teeth straightening treatments.

Unlike some companies we have years of experience in teeth straightening

We believe that teeth straightening can only be safely carried out by qualified dentists. They are the only people who have the knowledge and skills to provide safe and predictable treatment. At {my}dentist we have the UK’s largest network of clinicians who will listen to your individual smile goals and deliver high quality, safe, convenient and affordable care.

We only work with dental clinicians

As well as our network of dentists we also have a UK-wide network of qualified orthodontists, should you need more complex treatment. While all of the dentists you will see are trained to provide teeth straightening with clear aligners, some patients might need to see a specialist orthodontist if their teeth are very crowded. Whatever your needs you can relax in the knowledge that we can help.

Clinically safe

All {my}dentist patients have their treatment overseen by a UK registered dentist. We will make sure that your teeth and overall oral health are in good shape before we start teeth straightening and check in with you regularly to make sure that the treatment is progressing as planned. That means you can rest assured that at the end of treatment your teeth will look and feel great. All of our practices are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the UK’s healthcare governing body, and are subject to the strictest clinical protocols.
