Smile Pod

My thanks to John Davies for bringing this to my attention
Smile Pod appears to be a walk-in hygiene practice which wants to franchise.
I’m confused at the term “walk-in hygienist” and then the reference that all treatment is provided by professional dentists (are there some unprofessional ones?).
Of particular interest to me is the price list CLICK HERE which has de-commoditised their services into experiences – very clever.
At first glance the web site looks very primitive but it’s a fascinating concept and I wish them well.
