Our Practice

Welcome to West Street Dental Practice

Established over 60 years ago, we are a dental practice based in the heart of Leighton Buzzard with a focus on providing the highest standard of dental care for the whole family. We are passionate about oral health and strive to create a relaxed and friendly environment in which our patients can expect to receive an exceptional level of care and advice.

 

Our practice was fully refurbished in 2013 and provides 5 modern and fully equipped air conditioned surgeries where patients can expect to meet all of their oral healthcare needs. We have full disabled access with onsite parking and a qualified and dedicated team focused on ensuring your visit is as smooth as possible.

 

The team is headed by clinicians and practice owners Nil and Preeya Sakerchand, they have a wealth of experience between them and both took over the practice in 2009. Since then, they have developed the practice from a traditional single surgery operating from the back room of a residential property to the modern and state of the art practice it is today. They have achieved this whilst maintaining the strong family centred approach to providing both NHS and private dentistry the practice has been built upon.

 

 

We are proud members of the British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme.
