Caterham Dental Care’s philosophy has always been to provide quality dental care with a wide range of treatment options to patients of all ages and backgrounds. Since taking over the practice in 2008, Dr. Shilane Patel, has continued his commitment in developing the practice and training staff to keep up with the ever changing guidelines and regulations within dentistry.

We wish to continue improving the level of care that is provided to all patients and offer more time and options. As further NHS reforms are planned and potential changes in the delivery of care may be involved. Dr Shilane Patel has taken the decision to introduce alternative options for patients to consider and continue under his care.

For the majority, we recommend joining Denplan as this will provide an affordable way to maintain your dental health. (click here for further details)

Some patients may prefer to remain as a private patient on a ‘pay as you go’ basis (private fee list can be seen under our fee section or by visiting us in the practice).
If you wish to continue your dental care on an NHS basis, then this will be possible with one of the other dentists at the practice.

Patients with their own existing Dental insurance may continue to use this and claim back costs in the usual way.

Any registered patients are welcome to change over to Denplan to receive the additional benefits associated.
