Meet Our Dental Team

We really are very proud of our team at The Smile Centre, LIskeard. We are a genuinely friendly bunch who gets to know our patients and their families by name.

Dental wellbeing is fundamental to our self-confidence and our quality of life, and our team has been contributing to the welfare of the local community for over twenty years through the provision of exceptional oral healthcare and a superior customer care experience.

We adhere to the strict guidelines set by the General Dental Council.
