Dr. Graham Aird dental practice on Sanderstead Hill was established 30 years ago to meet the needs of patients disillusioned with the limitations of NHS treatment. It's too impersonal, not child friendly, and more often than not, involved in endless treatment than practicing prevention.
Those early families taught us that evidence-based health information, modern aids like electric toothbrushes, avoiding mercury-containing fillings, and access to specialist services when required have enabled them to keep their teeth into their very old age. We have many 80 and 90-year-olds still smiling.
So we now often care for 3 or 4 generations of the same families.We would rather do our utmost for a small number of motivated patients than be large and commercial.
Because we normally see 6-8 patients a day instead of the average 30-40 in the NHS and use Rubber Dam* for all our treatments the safety implications following the Covid-19 pandemic are already standard practice.
Most of our new patients are through personal recommendation but if you are new to the area we invite you to contact our patient manager Lesley to discuss all our policies.
*Rubber dam: A dental dam or rubber dam (sometimes termed "Kofferdam"—from German), designed in the United States in 1864 by Sanford Christie Barnum, is a thin, 6-inch (150 mm) square sheet, usually latex or nitrile, used in dentistry to isolate the operative site (one or more teeth) from the rest of the mouth.
We are closed on weekends and Bank holidays.
