We do every day dentistry… but it’s just done… differently…

Considering we’re the highest 5* rated dentist in Bournemouth according to Google reviews, our clients may say we even do it… better?

 

We Love Comprehensive Dentistry

 

Your mouth is an engineering masterpiece, but we bet you’ve never thought about it that way?

When biology designed your teeth, it created cutting teeth at the front to slice through your food and chunky wide teeth at the back to chew it. The back teeth take the brunt of huge chewing forces and this protects the smaller front teeth. If you’ve never had a filling your mouth will be in finely tuned balance.

 

But what happens when something breaks or you have some dentistry done?

That balance will skew and can lead to further problems. Ever had filling after filling break and need yet another one replacing every 6 months? Now you know why.

That’s why we think comprehensively and consider the whole picture.

The team at Smile Stories will provide a complete oral health check which includes:

  • Cavity and decay detection – to stop unforeseen pain
  • Gum disease diagnosis – gums should never bleed
  • Oral cancer screenings – you can’t ever be too careful
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) health check – that’s the joint that opens and closes your mouth BTW
  • Tooth wear analysis – worn edges on your teeth are not normal and this sign of ageing can be reversed

 

 

And everything we is do is under magnification. Our dentists and hygienists can see your teeth up to 7 times larger than a dentist who does not wear magnifying loupes.

If a dentist can’t see it, do you think they find the cause of a problem or even treat it?

“In and out in 5 minutes” like a conveyor belt is not our style. We’ll look at the details, unhurried and you included every step of the way.

 

We promise we’ll look after you like we’d be taken care of ourselves.

In one word: Amazing! From the very first message the team has been so attentive and caring. Every step of my journey so far I have felt supported by the teams kind follow up messages and Zak’s friendly zoom calls. Today was my first ever major dentist procedure and Zak and Tash made me feel at ease the entire time. I was very surprised my filling and wisdom tooth removal was quick and completely painless. Zak particularly has made me feel in safe hands from our first encounter and you can tell he really cares about what he does. I am very excited to be on this journey with smile stories and would 100% recommend to anyone !

I came to Smile Stories after a couple of bad experiences with previous dentists. They were highly recommended by a friend. I hated my teeth and I knew I needed a lot of work. The guys at Smile Stories put me at ease straight away and Gareth and his team have completely transformed my teeth and given me back my smile and my confidence. I have been treated so well, weirdly I don't mind going to the dentist any more...

I thought I would just put a message up saying how good the Smile Stories team are. Whether it is a hygienist or dentist appointment I am always made to feel welcome which instantly relaxes me. Any procedures are always explained to me first in a very reassuring way and I have been given some very useful advice by the team that has proved invaluable in keeping my teeth in good shape. 👍 Lastly, the waiting room always puts a smile on my face. The revamp has a cool club vibe going on . Five stars from me.

I have been going to this dentist for years - including prior to it becoming Smile Stories. Jayne the hygienist is so lovely and always puts me at ease as teeth cleaning makes me very nervous.I then decided to have my teeth straightened and Zak did this for me. I’m so happy with the end result. Makes me feel so much more confident to have nice, white straight teeth. Thank you Zak.The dentist surgery has now changed to Smile Stories and the staff are so friendly and helpful. You are met by friendly happy reception staff as soon as you arrive.Thanks all for making coming to the dentist not such a nerve racking experience.

Award-Winning Dentists Trained by World Leaders

Your trusted dentist in Bournemouth

What we don’t do (sorry)

 

Because we think comprehensively, we think proactively, not reactively. If your roofer said you had a tile missing would you wait for the winter to “wait and see,” or repair it before the rain arrives?

And that’s how our clients feel about their oral health, too. They tell us prevention is better than cure. It’s also less costly, too.

So, we’re sorry, we don’t do emergency quick fixes, patch-up dentistry and we don’t do “can you just”. It’s just not our style as we know we’re doing you a disservice which will bite you you-know-where at the least convenient time.

Our dentists take immense pride in their work and dedicate hours helping each and every client.

We’re here to help you achieve a disease-free mouth with dental treatment that lasts decades.

We’re a Digital-First Dental Clinic

What on earth does that mean?

It means it’s no longer 1995 and technology in dentistry has moved on. It might just have been you haven’t experienced it (yet!).

Our dental practice in Bournemouth is no longer using dial-up dental treatments (remember when you couldn’t use the phone and internet at the same time?) like mercury fillings and crowns which look like lumps of chewing gum.

We are fully and has equipped with cutting-edge tech for both our cosmetic and general dentistry services.

The team at Smile Stories use 3D scanners, not gunky, messy mouthfuls of plasticine which make you gag and wretch during impression moulds.

And we plan digitally too.

Have you ever had a crown or filling placed and thought “Is my dentist blind, the colour makes this one stick out like a sore thumb?” We take high powered Digital SLR photos of everything… literally everything. We use these to communicate with our selected team of Master Ceramists to ensure the work we do is seamless.

And we’ll show you them too, after all it’s your mouth and our clients appreciate the thoroughness.

How your path to complete dental health works at Smile Stories

 

 

 

We’re no party poopers, but when it comes to your health we don’t like surprises. In fact, one of the main points of feedback we get from our clients is how they appreciate the extra time and effort that goes into discovering your goals and analysing every aspect of your dental health.

 

 

We won’t even tell you too much in your first appointment. Our dentists set aside extra time behind-the-scenes to collating and analysing all of the information to provide you a plan that works.

That means no more unexpected pain in the middle of the night by papering over the cracks for another 6 months. No more loose dentures that have rubbed for 3 years but your dentist tells you to just “make do”.

 

Let’s just do it properly.

Once we have the information our team of dentists will collectively Write Your Story.

We’ll look at your goals, then your x-rays, photos, scans and the other ton of information and create a bespoke plan that works perfectly for you.

Then it’s the fun part, we’ll show you it!

You’ll have a guided tour of your mouth to understand exactly where you’re at before we give you our recommendations to guarantee a happy, healthy mouth for decades to come.
