If you’ve been thinking about changing dental practices, 2023 is the perfect time to make the switch! But how can you find the best dentist in Balham without knowing what to ask yourself during your search?

At Ten Dental, we know how important it is for you to find the perfect practice. We want to help you find dental care that meets your needs to a T. That’s why we have compiled this handy guide of things to bear in mind:


What kind of patient are you?

Asking yourself this question is a great place to start. Think about what you’re looking for from your private dentist in London. For example, if you get anxious before or during appointments, you should seek a dentist who specialises in reassuring nervous patients.

At Ten Dental, we go over and above to ensure all our patients feel relaxed and confident whilst they’re with us. Whether it’s a straightforward check-up or a more complex implant treatment, we will discuss everything with you before going ahead.

Our practice is a welcoming and calming environment, and all our dental professionals are experts in a wide range of treatments – so you’ll know you’re in safe hands with us.


How will your dentist approach your care?

The style of your dentist’s care is another crucial consideration in your search for the best dentist in Balham. We always recommend choosing a practice that puts your long-term dental health ahead of everything else.

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums with regular dental examinations and hygiene appointments means you’re less likely to need invasive, expensive treatment later in life. The best dentists will encourage this routine care and give you thorough oral health advice.


Do they offer a range of finance options?

Ever-rising prices mean financial flexibility is more important than ever but visiting a private dentist in London isn’t always the most affordable option.

We would never want you to put off having treatment that could save your teeth and restore your confidence because you’re worried about finances. That’s why we offer 0% interest finance options to help spread the cost of your care across handy monthly payments!

Whether you’re looking to straighten your smile with orthodontic treatment, brighten it with teeth whitening, or replace missing teeth with dental implants. Our finance options make these transformative treatments more accessible.


Should you choose a private dentist?

We understand that private dentistry isn’t for everyone, but there are many benefits to choosing a private dentist. For instance, you can access a broader range of treatments (including cosmetic dentistry). There are no waiting lists, and your dentist can allocate more time to your appointment.

We have five specialist dentists at Ten Dental, who all have extra training in orthodontics and periodontics. We offer cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, composite bonding, and Invisalign, which are only available privately.


What are other patients saying about the practice?

Google reviews are an excellent way to identify the best dentist in Balham. Reading what other patients think about dental practices will help you to understand whether they’re right for you.


Ten Dental, we’re thrilled to have a 4.5-star rating on Google! Here are a couple of our all-time favourite reviews from happy patients:

“I had a brilliant experience with Ten Dental and I’m so thrilled with my teeth! I had white fixed braces done by Dr Annika Patel who was always super quick, lovely and professional and got my teeth to the perfect position. On completion, I had composite bonding and finishing done by Dr Charlie Paterson who did an incredible job. He’s super detailed and clear with what he’s doing. I’m very thankful to them both and am so happy with the result! Highly recommended!”

“I can’t recommend this dentist enough. I registered after a friend recommended them to me and am so pleased they did. Everyone from the dentists and hygienists to the reception team and orthodontist is kind, helpful and professional – and most importantly they put you at ease. After decades of hating my teeth, I finally took the plunge and booked Invisalign with them in 2021. I had so much trust in the team after all the previous appointments that I decided to go for it – and a year on I couldn’t be happier. The whole Invisalign process was so smooth, and I felt very well cared for. Rosie in particular was brilliant at talking me through everything and answering my many questions, with plenty of patience and reassurance! My treatment took just over a year – exactly as expected, and it’s all down to the Ten Dental team who genuinely seem to care that you get the results you want (and that you’ve paid for!). Thank you Ten Dental!”
