It can be nerve wracking discussing your concerns, but let us reassure you that our vast wealth of experience has exposed us to every possible dental dilemma.

We are a friendly and approachable team who pride ourselves on being compassionate and respectful.

Whether you are looking for a routine dental check-up, or some advice on more advanced dental procedures, do not hesitate to get in touch.

The Mall – Manchester City centre

Advanced dental care in the heart of Manchester. A stones throw away from the culturally diverse northern hub

The environment at The Mall, formerly known as Smylife, is tranquil, and patients are encouraged to relax and enjoy their time at the clinic in surroundings that resemble a boutique-hotel, rather than a dental practice. 

Fresh flowers and candles complement the exquisite decor, and patients are provided with complimentary drinks upon arrival. At The Mall, no expense is spared in delivering the very best in patient comfort.
