We met Christopher at a dental anxiety conference and would like to recommend him here 👍!

Chris is very personable, easy to talk to, and has a very relaxing manner. He's really well-versed in local anaesthesia techniques. If you've had trouble getting numb elsewhere, Chris may well be your man! He also has completed a postgraduate degree in dental anxiety management, and is able to provide conscious sedation if you so wish. He's very passionate about dentistry.

He is currently working in 2 different places:

• Hayes Dental Surgery (33 Pickhurst Lane, Hayes, Bromley Kent BR2 7JE, Tel: 020 8462 1347) - this is only 5 minutes walk from Hayes station on the Southeastern line, so not too hard to get to from London
• The Gentle Dentist (61 Shelton St, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9HE, Tel: 020 7395 0520)

Please note that there are a number of dentists working at these practices, so make sure to specifically arrange a meeting with Christopher. You can also get his private email address from us if you'd like to contact him beforehand and see if he might be right for you - just give us a yell at [email protected] :)
