I was terrified when my trusted and lovely dentist retired. But someone recommended Dr Vondee at Perry Vale and although I’ve only seen him once I already trust him (which is a Big Thing for me!) and his work looks good too.

As at added surprise bonus they accepted me as a National Health patient. I thought NHS dentist had ceased to exist!


I can’t recommend enough Stanstead dental centre opposite Moon Lane Books. The two female dentists there, who I’ve see a few times for various things, are brilliant. Two kids also happy to go there which says a lot. They take NHS patients as well.

Townley Road has been taken over or rebranded as Dental Beauty Dulwich.
Had a bad experience with them when I needed an emergency consultation. They said they could fit me in, in two weeks time. I asked for something sooner due to the pain and they said I could go on a waiting list.
I phoned Dentistry for You and was in 2 hours later. Had a dying tooth that needed to be drilled out and capped. They were fine and fully explained everything that needed to be done…
I complained to Dental Beauty but they didn’t seem interested so after 15 years there I have moved on.


Having issues myself with SmilesForYou in Crofton Park. Not once under 5 years and I have been a longer customer than that may I add. I feel let down and not looked after like before. To many different dentist and my teeth broke because of them ignoring what I was saying now the fillings don’t last causing further issues. The stress it’s caused me and upset. They don’t care I want a dentist who cares and just doesn’t want your money. Not everyone can just hand £300 over seriously I don’t live a celebrity lifestyle either. Yes… please recommend a dentist to me that also caters for now nervous patients to sort this out. I would be very grateful.
