We provide Private Dental Treatments to our patients since 2005 and are situated in central Romford from 1948, the surgery having moved here from Dagenham.
Many of our patients remember my late sister, Dr Victoria Gafton with whom I worked in this practice since 1994.
I have qualified from Guy’s Hospital in 1991 - then named UMDS, United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals and from The Faculty of Stomatology in Bucharest, Romania in 1981.
I also attended a postgraduate course in general dentistry at UCH London (University College Hospital) between
1984-1987 and I and members of the practice staff often go on ECPD courses (Enhanced Continuing Professional Development).
I have always been dedicated to giving high quality treatment to my patients and I am committed to providing dental care that meets their needs and wishes, at affordable prices.

I am happy to let you know that we re-opened the surgery on July 6th 2020. However, it is not a return to business as usual. The treatments we offer are dependent on availability of equipment and staff.
Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by governing bodies. We had to make a number of changes to help protect our patients and staff, such as :
❀ Before your next appointment we will ask you screening
questions and again, at your appointment time.
❀ Appointments are managed to allow for social distancing
between patients so you are offered fewer options for
scheduling your appointment.
❀ We cannot absorb all the cost for the PPE (personal
protection equipment) so unfortunately there will be a fee
for the PPE required for all aerosol generating
❀ You will be asked to use hand sanitiser on entering and
leaving the surgery.
❀ We no longer offer magazines as they are difficult to
disinfect but you will not have a long wait - if at all - in
How you can help:
❀ Come alone to the surgery and wear a mask.
❀ Please ring up to let us know when you arrive as the
surgery door will be locked and you will be invited in when
the surgery is free.
❀ Do not arrive early to the surgery,
if necessary please wait outside.
❀ Please do not arrive without an appointment.
❀ If you have booked an appointment and you develop
Covid-19 symptoms afterwards, please phone us before
your appointment is due.
Please fill in and bring with you to the surgery or e-mail the Covid-19 Pre appointment triage form attached. Do ring us up should you have any queries.
We look forward to seeing you and for better days for us all.
