About us

Where your dental care helps your community

Brighter Dental is a Smile Together service providing competitively priced private dental care to communities across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Our high street practices in Penzance, Saltash, Bodmin, Newquay and the Isles of Scilly offer high quality routine dental treatments for patients and are driven by the same commitment to patient care as our colleagues at West Country Dental Care who provide essential, emergency and community dentistry.

Smile Together is a community interest company whose mission is to tackle oral health inequality, creating healthier happier communities. As a social enterprise, we have clear rules about what we do with our profits to ensure we reinvest back into the Cornish communities in which we serve.

So by becoming a Brighter Dental patient, not only are you receiving excellent dental care but you are contributing back to your local community.

Hence we are ‘good for you, good for your community’.

Supporting our community

By reinvesting our profits back into the local community, we are able to make a real difference to people’s lives across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Our Brighter Smiles programme brings practical tooth-brushing clubs, educational visits and fluoride varnishing to children in areas of high decay across Cornish communities and our team volunteer to go further into our communities to help those who need us most (Smiles At Sea).

Join us

Our clinical team members experience unique and varied dental careers with us, working in a mix of structured settings. From general dental services through Brighter Dental to essential, emergency and community dentistry through West Country Dental Care and orthodontics, our clinical colleagues find their work here valuable and rewarding. Above all, they have time to develop and apply their patient skills, enabling genuine quality care provision (for opportunities click here).

Our team

In each Brighter Dental practice, we have a highly experienced dentist, dental nurse and receptionist, all of whom are friendly, approachable and professional.

In some practices, for example in Saltash and Penzance, we also have a qualified Dental Hygiene Therapist available to support your oral hygiene care.
