The National Smile Transformation competition, offering the chance for one person to undergo a complete smile makeover free of charge, had received a great response. 11 entries were shortlisted and after your voting the 5 finalists were chosen.

Friday 20th September was a very emotional day at elleven as the 5 finalists for the National Smile Transformation competition came into the practice. Each finalist had a thorough clinical examination and X rays, photos and impressions were taken.

There were quite a few tears as Annika, Jenny, Julie, Emma and Jane each told their story, answered Dr Tim Newton’s questions and shared their fears of dentistry based on bad experiences in their past.
