5 Things We’d Like You To Know About Smile Up
We don’t mind admitting that we’re extremely proud of our practice, patients, and team. Located in Lewisham, we’ve worked hard and listened closely to our patients’ feedback to create an environment that works for everyone who walks through the door.
Our ethos is to make you feel comfortable
We understand how daunting visits to the dentist can be – 12% of people in the UK suffer from extreme dental phobia, which is characterised by avoiding the dentist and ignoring complications with your teeth even if they become serious. We believe everyone should feel comfortable when walking through our doors here at our Lewisham practice and have made a conscious effort to create a relaxed and cosy environment for our patients. We also offer IV sedation for nervous patients, which has actually helped many people see the dentist in a different and more positive light.
Every appointment is important to us
Our approach is not to cram as many appointments into a day as possible – we believe in giving every patient the time they need, especially as visiting the dentist is a sensitive and challenging activity for many. We are passionate about helping nervous patients grow, building up their confidence and trust so that they can have a smile they’re proud of.
We embrace state-of-the-art technology
We believe that providing our patients with the best possible care is paramount and this extends to investing in the best technologies. Examples of the type of technologies we have at the practice include a CT scanner, allowing us to take 3D images of your teeth. This type of technology is invaluable when it comes to reconstructive surgeries and dental implant procedures. You can read our blog about how CT scans benefit patients and dentists here.
We are open 7 days a week
Here at Smile Up English is our first language but we also speak French, Portuguese, Spanish, Bulgarian, Italian, Russian and Polish and our website is translatable into these languages with the addition of Greek.
