    "I always attend Mydentist at the Westoe Road Surgery and have done since it opened. I couldn't praise the dentists , dental nurses and reception staff enough. If you want to receive 5* dentalcare this is definitely the place to come. I'm disabled and in a wheelchair and cannot walk up or downstairs so the receptionist always makes sure that my appointment is booked in the ground floor surgery. There is nothing the staff cannot do to help to make your visit as pleasant as possible. My dentist Mr Thomas and his dental nurse are a fantastic team; they have a wonderful way of making you feel at ease and in complete control of your treatment. I really like how he explains what the problem is and how he can help to make it better! This is definitely 5* treatment from a 5* Dentistry Team. Thank you to each and everyone of the team. Mrs M L Skelly"

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.

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.
