  • 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. šŸ˜ƒ 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.

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.

How can we help you achieve cleaner, healthier teeth?

We have two main courses of treatment if you would like to improve your overall oral hygiene:

Our hygienists will carry out a scale and polish, removing tartar and maintaining good gum health. This can also have the added benefit of removing stains from your teeth, as well as helping you to have a good general level of oral health. We recommend visiting a hygienist on a regular basis.


If you already have gum disease it may be necessary to provide you with a deeper clean to restore good gum health. Your hygienist might refer you to a specialist dentist who can provide a course of treatment and advise you further, reducing your risk of receding gums and losing teeth in future.


Booking your hygienist appointment

Whether you have excellent oral health, or you are experiencing symptoms such as bleeding gums, the first thing you need to do is book an appointment with the hygienist. They will be able to give your mouth a thorough clean and refer you on if you do need any further treatment. They will also talk to you about maintaining good oral health at home, advising you on choosing the correct toothbrush, mouthwash, floss or interdental brushes.
