Calm & Caring Dental Team
What do all our Sandhurst dental team have in common, apart from highly attractive smiles?
All of our dental professionals are registered with and meet the high standards of the GDC. They commit to you and your perfect smile as well as the following:
Six Big Reasons To Become Our Friend:
Calm & Caring Team
Patient confidentiality and ensuring patients give their consent to all treatments.
- Give patients ways to raise concerns or make a complaint.
- An ongoing training and education programme to ensure you are getting the latest treatments.
- Make decisions that are in the best interests of patients.
- Invest in teamworking and good management.
- Put patients interests first throughout our careers, and always maintain continuing professional development.
We have also invested heavily in the people who don’t put their hands in your mouth. That means you’ll get that last-minute appointment when you need it, you won’t get left hanging around in reception for ages (although it’s very comfortable!) and you feel very special.
Calm & Caring Practice Manager
On a personal note, Sally has lived and worked locally in Sandhurst practically all her life and has an adorable Yorkshire terrier called Sophie who takes up most of her spare time with either walking or grooming her. Sally also enjoys the cinema and theatre and loves to escape to the countryside as often as possible – especially down to Cornwall.
Sally has been part of the Confidental team for over 10 years which she really enjoys. She has watched Confidental grow into the successful, exclusive, private practice that it is today.
Sally feels very lucky that we have such a focussed, professional and committed team, and finds our new practice owner, Sandeep Mohal, a true pleasure to work with. In her role as Practice Manager Sally is responsible for the smooth running of the Practice and she enjoys the challenge!
