About us

The Smile Spa opened in 2006, offering the ultimate cosmetic and private dentistry service in the North East of England. The Smile Spa has gone from strength to strength, offering first class customer service, coupled with the latest technological advances in modern dentistry. In 2016 The Smile Spa became part of the Portman Dental Group; a privately owned, family run group of around 40 private dental practices in the UK.

For patients requiring a discreet and secure location we are based within a small business park with ample customer parking at the front and side of the building and disabled access. We are easy to access from the road, (we are just off A66) rail and air. We do have a number of customers who make use of the local airports when attending appointments.


We offer Private Dental Care, Dental Implants, Teeth Whitening, Smile Makeovers, Invisalign aligners, Oral Cancer Screening, Cosmetic Dentures, Root Canal Treatment in addition to specialist treatment for nervous patients. Over the past few years the practice has evolved, expanding the services we provide whilst maintaining first class patient care.
