Newsroom

At Smile Up we love to keep up with anything and everything that might affect our patients’ dental health, whether that’s breaking news about research or personal interviews with our dentists explaining how things work. We also post interviews with our patients to demonstrate how particular treatments have changed their lives.

Everything we post here in the newsroom is intended to help you, so if you were looking for something and can’t find it please get in touch and let us know, we’d love your feedback.

If you’re thinking about having a particular treatment then watching a video of someone else describing their experience with that treatment at Smile Up can be a really quick and easy way to decide if it might be for you. That’s why we’ve posted videos of our patients — have a look through and let us know if you can’t find a testimonial about the treatment you wanted. We’ll do our best to arrange a new video as soon as we can.

If you’d like to make an appointment you can do it here or give us a ring on 0203 411 1550.
