About us

The practice was established over 50 years ago in George Street. It grew with the demands of an expanding town to the size it is at present with three full time dentists and two part time. In 2010, we moved to larger premises at 43 George Street just two minutes walk from East Croydon  train station. The premises are housed in the iconic Woolwich House building right in the centre of Croydon.

Our aim is to offer dentistry and service that our patients deserve. With transparent pricing and a full explanation of treatments, our goal is to exceed your expectations at every stage of your care.

Our surgery is open 6 days a week. We offer private appointments out of hours as well as on Saturdays. We thank you for choosing our practice.
