The Smile Emporium
Professional Dentistry and Aesthetic Treatments

By being at our best, we’re able to help you look and feel yours.

Whether you’re looking for a reliable, gentle dentist or a younger, fresher look, we can help you with both. For Dr Sheryl Smithies, dentistry is about more than just teeth alone. It also includes confidence and the way you feel about yourself.

For this reason, Dr Smithies decided to extend her skills in facial aesthetics to give our patients the look that they deserve. This lead to the development of The Smile Emporium’s non-surgical, anti-wrinkle treatments alongside a full range of dental offerings that we guarantee.

With complimentary treatments to help you smile and shine brighter, we look forward to helping you look and feel your very best.

BEAUTY
Everyone deserves to have beautiful, radiant skin.

We know, it’s quite interesting that a dentist would also perform skin treatments. To us and to our patients, it’s what makes us different.

No one knows a facial structure quite like a dentist does. The same goes for a dentist’s abilities to use specialised tools. Together, these two skills make The Smile Emporium a one-stop shop for your entire dental and beauty needs.

Our foundation in dentistry has meant that we understand the science and technology behind every treatment more than the average aesthetician would.

At The Smile Emporium, it’s our goal to create a more youthful and radiant you, whilst removing the stigma attached to many aesthetic treatments. With well being involving more than just exercise and diet, healthy teeth and a glowing complexion are, we believe, important factors to consider.

We offer the classics like Botox®, fillers and skin boosters as well as more progressive and inventive treatments. In order to maintain our image as very competent in our field, we’re always expanding our treatments in line with international standards and what really works.
