  • review rating 5  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!!!

    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  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

  • 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.

When might you need emergency dental treatment?

    • This can be caused from infections, decay or fractures. We can relieve pain by starting root canal treatment, removing teeth, placing fillings or giving antibiotics.

    • These can be fixed rapidly by our team.

    • This can be fixed quickly by rebonding teeth back onto dentures.

    • These normally occur in teeth, implants or gums. We have a variety of solutions to get you out of pain.

    • This is a common issue and can be effectively treated in a quick, timely manner.

    • This can be very urgent, especially if it’s a front tooth. Generally, these can be quick to re-cement; however, if the tooth is completely broken we may need to spend some time to ensure we fix your immediate cosmetic concerns.

    • This can be a cosmetic issue and can sometimes be very painful. Normally a bonded white filling is the best solution and one that can be done during an emergency appointment.

What to expect from your emergency dental appointment

We will listen to your concerns carefully, so if your main issue is a cosmetic one and you absolutely need to get the tooth fixed for a certain time we will endeavour to do our best to keep you happy, even if it is with a temporary solution.

We will carefully examine your mouth to arrive at the correct diagnosis before any treatment takes place. We make sure you are completely happy with our solution.

We present some treatment options to you along with the pros, cons and fees, so you can make an informed decision. We don’t rush you into any dental treatments.

Choosing Gentle Dental Care for your dental emergency

We guarantee to offer you an appointment within 24 hours of your call, and we can see most patients on the same day. Our expert dentists are here to get you out of a crisis. We have specialist teams, which means you can have your whole treatment at one clinic.

If you need ongoing treatment after your dental emergency, or you need a more permanent solution after a temporary fix, we will be here to support you. For example, we may replace a crown with a temporary option so your smile doesn’t suffer, then make up a new crown for you that we can fit at a later date. Your dentist will provide a timeline for your treatment, so you know exactly what to expect.
