Our mission at Smile Together is to tackle oral health inequality, creating healthier happier communities.

Covering Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, we are one of the South West’s largest NHS referral and emergency dental care providers.  We provide urgent and emergency dental treatments for people who don’t have their own dentist, run out-of-hours surgeries and apply expert skills to treat children and adults with a range of special care needs alongside oral surgery, children’s orthodontics and treatments under general anaesthetic in a hospital setting. We also deliver NHS care and competitively priced private dentistry from practices based in the heart of their communities.

An award-winning and innovative organisation, we function as an employee-owned community interest company and social enterprise with clear rules about reinvesting our profits back into patient facilities and our community. Our Brighter Smiles campaign brings practical tooth-brushing clubs, fluoride varnishing and oral health education to children in areas of high decay across Cornish communities, while our award-winning Smiles At Sea campaign sees our team visiting harboursides across Cornwall and Devon to provide dental treatments and oral health advice to fishermen who rarely get the chance to visit a dentist due to the demands of their work. Our teams frequently reach further into their local communities, partnering with local charities and doing what they can to improve oral health outcomes.

We opened a brand-new, purpose-designed accessible dental centre in May 2019, transforming dentistry provision in the county for patients who need us most. This was chosen by NHS England as the county’s first Urgent Dental Care Hub in 2020, one of four that we continue to operate alongside coordinating countywide Hub referrals.

We’re a committed and friendly team that puts our people and patients first.
