Our History

Our practice first opened in the Whitgift Shopping Centre in 1970. It was established by Mr Norman Goldberg and taken over by the present owner Shahin Lalani in 1998. She had worked at the practice since 1994; she loved it so much she bought the company! The practice relocated to Chatsworth Road in Croydon in January 2016.

Whether you are a new or an existing patient, we would like to thank you for choosing our practice. We pride ourselves in giving you the highest quality treatment in an atmosphere that is friendly, supportive and relaxed. You will be greeted by a friendly team of professionals that will take an interest in you and treat you as an individual.

Our team has been trained to a high standard and we regularly attend continuing education courses and workshops to refresh and further our skills, ensuring we can deliver the very latest techniques. While you are in our care we will show you just how important your oral health is in relation to your general health. We look forward to not only helping you have the best smile and freshest breath but also excellent long term health.

We pride ourselves in the friendly and welcoming practice we have built. This comes down to our longstanding, caring, professional team!

As a nervous dental patient I really needed a practice that could handle my needs but also provide an excellent and honest service. Shahin, Julie, Abs, Lynda and the team certainly provide that in abundance. There's always a cheery welcome and a level of care that is rarely found. I cannot recommend Whitgift Dental highly enough, I almost (not really!) look forward to going to the dentist!
