Really kind and friendly dentist, highly recommend!
All West Wickham Dental Practice staff from receptionist to dentist are very polite, professional and friendly. They are very caring and always make sure to provide you with the high quality dental work. Outstanding service! Highly recommended.
This dental practice has had a transformation since I visited a year ago for my regular check up and hygiene. The practice environment has had remodelling done making it look sleek and welcoming. Dr Anhaar continues to be the dentist there and as is always the case, her attention to detail is meticulous. I have had varied courses of treatments that started with a crown and a root canal to regular hygiene visits, and now my family and I continue to receive the care from her team. Hope you go from strength to strength and thank you for looking after our teeth.
Earlier this year, in March 2018 I went to Kam at Gentle Dental Care, very very much in pain. I had to have two back teeth extracted. I opted for sedation when having the teeth taken out. I chose to have these replaced with Implants once the extraction had healed. During this time I also had a crown put on another tooth. As a very nervous patient, I can honestly say from start to finish the whole process has been a breeze. I attended 5 visits in total and was sedated twice, once for the extraction and once for the initial implant procedure. Kam definitely lives up to his name of the most gentle dentist in Croydon and I can tell how much he cares about his patients and doing the very best for them. The whole team at the surgery are lovely, put me at ease and reassured me every step of the way. It has been painless in every sense of the word. A couple of weeks ago, I went for the last process of having the implant crowns fitted and they look amazing and I could not be happier. 😃 Thank you so much Kam and all your team. Pauline Lee
I visited to have two teeth extractions a few weeks ago and was so frightened. I saw Dr Shivani and she was very calming and extremely professional at all times, I can honestly say one of the best practitioners in oral health I've been seen by. I would highly recommend this Dental surgery to anyone wanting highly professional, PAIN FREE - excellent experience. Thank you so much x Leigh Shilton.
I loved my entire experience with Gentle Dental Care! The staff are all so friendly and accommodating and always willing to help wherever they can! I’m also super happy with my results! I highly recommend Dr Avi and the team!
Great dentist, very professional and helpful. Dr Avi and various employees always make my experience here very pleasant.
A big thank you to all at Gentle Dental for the work and support they provided over the last 12 months. Kam, Shivani, Daniela, Nina all were great to deal with.
I do not write reviews for the sake of it! But I've got to say that I received more info on dental care in that one half hour sitting, than at any other time in my life. The dentist was so passionate about her advice on preventative care; and a very holistic approach. The staff and general environment were very welcoming and comfortable throughout. The actual treatment was also of a high standard. Thanks guys!
I am a VERY nervous patient due to bad experiences at dentists in the past. All the staff have been so friendly, helpful and reassuring, putting me at ease. I will have no problem returning for regular checkups as my confidence has been reinstalled. Thank you so much!!!
What you need to know
Anti-wrinkle injections usually consist of treatment using botulinum toxin, better known as Botox.
Wrinkles are caused by natural aging of the skin and exacerbated by sun damage, smoking, a poor diet and repeated facial expressions which crease the skin. The muscles involved in facial expressions contract, causing the skin to fold, which results in the visible appearance of wrinkles.
BotoxⓇ (botulinum toxin) works by blocking the nerve receptors that are responsible for causing these muscles to contract. The nerve receptors are very specifically targeted which means that you can carry on with your day-to-day life without worrying about unwanted side effects.
right for you?
This service is ideal for men and women who are concerned about wrinkles. The earlier you have the treatment – when you first see any wrinkles – the better the results will be in preventing them from getting worse. It is a safe and fast procedure to carry out. As dentists have an extremely deep knowledge of the facial expression muscles, we are best placed to treat related issues.
What should I do if I’d like to make
an appointment for a Botox treatment?
The first step is to come in for a consultation to determine which treatment option would be best for you.
Once we have discussed all the options available along with all the pros and cons, we can either go for treatment straight away or book you another visit. The actual treatment is very quick; however, it normally takes one to two weeks for the full effect to become apparent.
If you are a new patient we would normally limit the amount we give you to avoid any potential side effects. We always give you a free review visit after two weeks in case any top-ups are required.
Once we have treated you a couple of times we have a good gauge on the exact dosage, so treatment becomes extremely predictable.
Is Botox safe?
Botox has been around for about 20 years with very few reported side effects when delivered by professionals. There are some unwanted effects which usually resolve very quickly, and these can include slight swelling, bruising and redness around the injection site.
Botox is used to target very specific muscles and therefore any unwanted side effects are avoided.
How long does Botox last?
Botox will typically last around 3-4 months, on average.
After that, the skin will go back to its previous appearance.
