Reasons To Choose Us

Thames Dental Surgery is a busy mixed NHS/Private dental practice in Leigh-on-sea, Essex. The practice is known to be a warm friendly family practice and has a good reputation within the local and surrounding area.

The original practice was founded in 1950 and practice was relocated to new premises in April 2015 which enabled us to create the ideal environment for both our patients and staff.

Dr Anureet Kaur Gill became the principal in 2013 although the original practice was founded in 1950. The practice was relocated to new premises in April 2015 which enabled us to create the ideal environment for both our patients and staff.

The practice occupies the entire ground floor of the new building and has a large reception area, 3 modern fully equipped air conditioned surgeries, and a disabled access patient toilet. The practice is air-conditioned, fully computerised with digital X-rays and runs the latest secure clinical software. There is ample restriction-free parking is the local area. Each surgery is spacious, bright and equipped with its own computers and X-ray units. The practice offers all aspects of general dentistry and offers anti-wrinkle and cosmetic treatment too.

We pride ourselves on having a close team and members of staff are very caring, friendly and supportive. We understand that dental visits can be a stressful experience for some patients and we try to create a relaxing environment, free from the smells of dental surgeries. We play music in the surgeries and are happy for patients to bring along headphones if that helps minimise the sounds of the dental surgery.
