The recent figures show that nearly 10% of all dental treatment is an urgent appointment. But what happens to patients when their dentist isn't available to deliver advice? There is a large gap in patients accessing dental care out of hours, and the Tooth Fairy app helps fill this important void.

Knowing firsthand of the difficulties patients experience, our aim is to increase access and reinvent the way patients access dental care.


We developed our application with patients at the center of our aims. The Tooth Fairy app has been evaluated on patients at an NHS Hospital in London. 

As a dentist led organization, our core aim is to improve patients experience of dentistry. We allow dentists to use our software to manage their own patients, as well as speak to new patients.

The statistics of poor patient access are a reflection of the difficulties patients experience. We exist to overcome these and empower patients to experience a pain-free, healthy lifestyle. You can use our platform to access dentists for a range of reasons, whether it is for advice or discussions of a treatment plan, as well as soft consults from braces and facial aesthetics.
