The practice was established by Dr Daylesh Shah in 1983. It has progressively grown to its current size and we are proud to say that the majority of the growth is attributed to our reputation for providing complete affordable dentistry of the very highest quality in a friendly and comfortable environment. As a result a number of our patients remain with us despite having moved a considerable distance. We provide dentistry for the entire family and have many patients who have grown with us and who are now bringing their own children to see us.
WE HAVE BEEN CHOSEN AS A PROTOTYPE PRACTICE BY NHS ENGLAND TO PILOT THE NEW CONTRACT FOR DENTAL SERVICES IN ENGLAND.
We have three surgeries, one on the ground floor and the other two on the first floor. Patients with disabilities and problems climbing stairs will be accommodated so that they can be seen downstairs. Please notify the receptionist when making an appointment. We also provide facilities for wheelchair users.
GETTING TO US
There is parking on the adjoining streets but between the hours of 9.30am to 4.30pm, parking charges apply. We do our best to ensure that you will be seen on time but cannot guarantee this and suggest that you should always allow for one hour when paying for the parking.
Being on a busy main road, it is easy to reach us by public transport. We are situated exactly halfway between Tooting Broadway underground station and Earlsfield mainline station. Haydons Road mainline station is a 20 minute walk away. Buses 44, 77 and 270 all pass by the surgery. Bus G1 is about a 5 minute walk away.
