Here at Smileworks we are active in the fight against budget, poorly trained and downright rogue practitioners ruining the faces of the lovely people of Liverpool. Save Face are a government approved register of practitioners and have an easy to use search engine that will tell you the best places to get treatment wherever you are in the UK.
Not only are they accredited by the Professional Standards Authority but their register is recognised by the Government , the Department of Health and NHS England. They basically have a simple mandate: to ensure you get quality treatment at a decent price in a safe and clean environment where everyone is who they say they are.
Another interesting (and our favourite) part of what they do is their clandestine undercover operations into rogue practitioners claiming to be doctors, dentists and all sorts of medical professionals in breach of all the rules. This often involves brave individuals potentially putting themselves in harms way for the good of patients all over the UK. This is one of the reasons we have a great deal of respect and admiration for this most worthy of enterprises.
