Dr Hitesh Gohil BSc (hons), BDS (Lon)
GDC No.76608
Principal Dentist

Dr Gohil graduated from King’s College London in 1993 with an Honours degree in Biochemistry & Physiology, then in 1999 qualified with a degree in Dentistry from King’s Dental Institute in London. He then worked at King’s Dental Hospital alongside some of the UK’s leading consultants. From 2001-2008 Dr Gohil worked in general practice in the Central London area. He has a special interest in aesthetics and cosmetic treatments as well as routine dental care. Dr Gohil is a Gold Accredited Invisalign provider with much experience and expertise. He has a very understanding approach to his patients.

“My philosophy with treating patients has shifted towards being a conservative dentist. For example In the past a patient may have been provided with veneers to improve their teeth, but now we can move away from aggressive treatments like veneers by offering orthodontic treatment to correct the position of the teeth, then whitening the teeth to improve their colour and lastly, offering composite bonding to improve the shape of worn down teeth. My patients are much happier knowing that I have achieved a lasting result with minimum long term expense”

“I am a dedicated and sincere dentist that will always try and help my patients achieve their dental goals. I believe in good communication with a patient helps reduce anxiety. I have a very gentle touch and pride myself on my ability to produce good quality dental work”
