At Simply Beautiful Smiles, we believe in safeguarding our environment for the next generation, and we are determined to do our part.

Simply Beautiful Smile's Team


Every step of your experience at Simply Beautiful Smiles has been tailored to ensure your comfort and convenience. From your first phone call, to your warm welcome at our practice, our experienced team are dedicated to ensuring you receive exceptional care.

Your First Visit

Our specially trained team are excited to welcome you to the Simply Beautiful Smiles experience.

At your first visit, we will ask you to fill in some medical history and consent forms so that we can know how best to safely assist you. Things that you may not think are relevant to your teeth could well affect your health, your dental treatment outcome or procedure, so please share with us as much as you can. Your dentist will be happy to discuss any concerns or issues privately with you, and all information is strictly confidential. You should also make your dentist aware of any changes to your medication or health status each time you visit. If there is a chance you may be pregnant, your dentist will need to know as it may affect what procedures are safe to perform.

Your dentist will sit down with you and listen to your areas of concern. It’s important to us to know what you expect from your dental treatment. The more information we have, the better we will be able to serve your needs.

A thorough and complete dental examination will be performed and any necessary records taken. We will also let you know if any further investigations or diagnostic tests are necessary. Your dentist will sit down with you and discuss their findings and, if appropriate, a range of available treatment options.

Your dentist will arrange for you to be presented with an accurate estimate of fees for any proposed dental services in advance of your treatment.

Your comfort, safety and care are paramount to us. Please let us know if there are any ways that we can increase your comfort level during your visit.

financial options

Our practice specialises in smile makeovers, and one of the most common questions we receive is how much they cost.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to estimate the cost of a smile makeover or complex procedure without evaluating a patient’s teeth. Our treatments are all fully customised to each patient and their individual needs.

For this reason, we are happy to offer a first free consultation for patients interested in smile makeovers, so we can assess their concerns and discuss their needs to provide a more accurate cost estimate.

We are also happy to offer a number of different payment options including payment plans through Denticare. Our Treatment Coordinator will discuss all of these options with you and assist you in accessing them if you wish.
