    "Absolutely wonder staff. I am a little bit phobic of dentists, they had time to listen and then explain every step of what they were going to do and making sure I was ok to go ahead each time. Very thoughtful and happy to help me. Clean practice. Excellently set up with covid bits. Thank you to everyone I saw including the manager."

    "I’ve been with this practice for a very long time since I was a little girl my children now also attend here. We have never had an issue. Staff are always polite friendly and easy to talk to. If treatment is needed I’ve never had an issue getting it done."

    "I have been with them for over 6 years now and very happy with the service. I always read how patients are not particularly satisfied, yet I have never come across anything but politeness, friendliness and professionalism from reception staff, dental assistants to my dentist. I visited a private dentist here in Exeter, had to pay £125 for registration and another £125 for patching up a broken tooth. Then for about a year I had them calling and writing to me about more treatments I 'must have'. Southlawn are less persuasive and definitely not money driven and their customers are given choice of treatments."

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.
