Meet Our Wonderful Team
When registering with us, you have 2 choices. You can register as a private patient with the practice owner Dr. Arjun Kachhala.
Alternatively, Dr. Kachhala and his team have recruited four highly talented associate dentists, if you wish to register as an NHS patient instead.
Our NHS dentists have either been head hunted or ‘cherry picked’ having passed a rigorous recruitment process. We have processes to check our standards regularly. So, if you wish to register with one of our associates, you can still expect a very high standard of communication, treatment and care to achieve the best level of health for your gums and teeth. All our dentists are committed to on-going postgraduate development and learning
