HISTORY: The practice was founded when John Plummer took over his uncle's single-handed dental practice in Great Yarmouth in 1971. It expanded through the 1980's into other purpose-built Health Centres in the Gt. Yarmouth area at Bradwell, Hemsby, Gorleston and Caister, using the concept of total health care with doctors, dentists and pharmacists johnplummerpractising in the same building. In the 1990's existing practices were purchased in Suffolk at Lowestoft and Oulton Broad.

In 1994 the practice built a purpose designed dental centre at Thorpe St. Andrew. Similar practices were completed in Wymondham in 1998 and in New Costessey in 1999. In 2005 the Oulton Broad practice relocated to the purpose-built health centre in Oulton Village.

The practice's decision to remain totally within the National Health Service in 2006 and to offer high-quality private dentistry lead to a vast increase in the number of patients. Fortunately the modern equipment and excellent working conditions enabled the practice to attract more conscientious skilled dental surgeons to our team, including specialists in different fields of dentistry.

Since 2009, three Faces & Smiles practices were built to provide to provide private advanced treatments by dentists with enhanced skills and specialists. These are located in Norwich, Lowestoft and Gt. Yarmouth.
