About Corné Smith Dentistry
So much begins with a smile...
Corné Smith dentistry is an aesthetic and general treatment Centre where high quality care and excellent service is our priority. You will be treated in a relaxed atmosphere, where we aim to make your dental experience as pleasant as possible. Using state of the art technology, and only the best materials, we give special attention to detail to each individual.
It is important to us that you are involved and informed in the decision making process when it comes to your dental health and cosmetic needs. We make use of digital photography, and various state of the art techniques to show you exactly what is needed, and how we could treat it. We also allow for enough time in our treatment sessions, to encourage discussion of different treatment options.
Allow us to show you that dental treatment should not be scary or painful! We would like to partner with you in getting that smile you deserve.
