About {my}dentist Advanced Oral Health Centre, Barrow-in-Furness

{my}dentist advanced Oral Health Centre Barrow, (formerly Ardent Dental Care), is a well-established practice in South Cumbria. We offer a wide variety of services to improve your health and your smile. The team at {my}dentist Barrow are committed to giving all our patients the very best experience possible. We offer a wide variety of treatments from hygiene to dentures. Our Invisalign teeth straightening treatment has been popular since we started to offer it in 2007 due to the discretion and convenience of clear braces. We also offer facial aesthetic treatments (anti-wrinkle injections) and TMJ treatments to ease teeth grinding. We are also lucky enough to have an experienced implantologist who can offer simple and complex implants to replace missing teeth or secure dentures. Our friendly receptionists, dedicated nurses and experienced clinicians work together as a team to help keep you smiling.

What our patients say

  • NHS Choices 5 out of 5

    "I am terrified of the dentist, like crying and panic attack scared. All the staff and dentist were extremely patient with me and really helped me feel more at ease. They explained everything thoroughly and didn't do anything if I felt uncomfortable. I also took my 5 year old son and they were amazing with him. Thank you!"

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.

Proud to be working with the CQC Proud to be working with the GDC
