    review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 4  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!

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  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

Dental Services here at
Wickham Road, Croydon

Offering both NHS and private dental care this purpose-built practice benefits from a suite of six surgeries and several consultation rooms. Facilities and services available at this practice include:

iTero scanning, allowing us to record a full digital copy of your mouth. This means fewer dental impressions are now needed, and turnaround time is reduced. We can also use our iTero software to show a digital simulation of what your teeth will look like after Invisalign treatment.

A CEREC milling machine, giving us the opportunity to prepare and fit crowns  in a matter of hours rather than the standard two-week turnaround time.


Dental hygiene. The 132 Wickham Road clinic also benefits from having a hygienist available for thorough cleaning and polishing of teeth and the treatment of gum disease. Our hygiene team also works in tandem with our periodontist, Dr Mish Sachdev, who treats patients at both 132 and 391 Wickham Road.

As part of the Gentle Dental family of practices we are also able to offer access for all our patients to a wide variety of treatments within the group.
