Fernleigh Dental Practice is a ‘Local Family Dentist’ that has been providing quality service for over 100 years. The previous owners, Dr Vasant Patel and his wife Dr Aruna Patel, have run the practice for the past 22 years before retiring from General Dentistry in September last year.
We at Fernleigh Dental would like to welcome to the practice Dr Ashish Sharma, who has recently taken over the practice. Since qualifying in 2001 from University of Wales College of medicine (UWCM) Cardiff, Dr Sharma has completed postgraduate training at the Eastman Dental Institute and is currently studying for an MSc in Endodontics from King’s College London. He was working for the past 12 years in a practice in the West Midland and has recently moved to the area with his wife and their young daughter. They very much look forward to becoming involved in the local community with their daughter having recently started to attend a local school in Winchmore Hill. Ashish is keen to maintain the ethos of the practice as a Local Community Family Dentist
Our team of dentists include Dr Vasant Patel and Dr Iain McLundie. Dr Patel is still practising part time, concentrating on his specialist interest in Oral Surgery and Dr McLundie has been an established General practitioner at Fernleigh Dental for over 28 years, well known for his conscientious and caring approach.
Our Hygienist, Sui-Ling Hau has been with the practice now for two years. She has become extremely popular due to her thorough yet gentle and careful approach. Initially, Sui began working one day a week, but due to the success of the service and Sui’s popularity, she has increased this to two days. The Hygienist’s role is to work alongside our dentists to treat gum disease and maintain healthy gums. She also uses specialist equipment which can effectively remove stains which your teeth may pick up from tobacco use and from drinking tea, coffee and red wine.
Most patients visit a hygienist on the recommendation of a dentist. However it is now possible, due to recent changes in regulations, for patients to have direct access to our hygienist without seeing a dentist first. If you are not a regular patient of ours, but wish to just see the hygienist, then call the practice to arrange an appointment.
We provide a mixture of NHS as well as Private Dentistry. NHS treatments tend to focus on achieving and maintaining dental health and restoring function. Private options are also available to cover treatments which we may not be able to offer on the NHS. These usually result in cosmetic and more aesthetic outcomes.
Our practice is also Denplan registered. We are well aware that dental treatment can be costly at times and therefore we offer a dental plan with ‘Worldwide Dental Insurance’ allowing patients to budget for their routine dental treatment, avoiding large unexpected bills and providing peace of mind when away from home.
Here at Fernleigh Dental Practice, we focus on providing exceptional standards of patient care, aiming to provide dentistry of consistently good quality for all patients and services that meet patients’ individual needs.
We have a ramp which allows us to offer facilities to those patients confined to a wheelchair. Please let our receptionists know should you require this.
Many of our patients have requested appointments outside of our normal working times. We have listened to this and the practice is now pleased to announce that we have introduced extended opening hours on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings to meet the needs of those patients who often struggle to attend at other times either due to work or family commitments.

Lovely dentist 5 My old dentist retired and I was worried about finding a new one, I tried this one because it's a LYDS business and I have found them to be very professional and good with my husband is a nervous patient. I recommend them.

Wonder dentist 5 Today was a massive milestone for me having my last filling done and I never ever in a million years would have been able to overcome my fear or even step foot into a dentist if it wasn’t for fernleigh practice and their team. Alexis & Clare are amazing at what they do they are so friendly & professional. They have given me confidence & trust in dentists. My biggest insecurity is my teeth and I’m so happy that I am finally getting the work done that soooo badly needed to be done. Step 1 is over.. now onto step 2. I am so excited to be on the right road to perfect teeth!! And all thanks to these guys I will never ever be able to thank them enough. There’s no better feeling than feeling confident about your appearance and I’m one step closer.

5 I’ve been attending the practice since July 2017, my previous total panic, at the thought or the dentist, has totally disappeared due to the excellent service provided. Ash and Sui are so kind and understanding, I can now say with all confidence that I’m no longer scared of the dentist!

Fantastic dental surgery 5 I'm so pleased I changed my dentist. I'm an extremely nervous patient and haven't found a dentist who makes me feel comfortable. Dr Sharma was absolutely amazing! I felt comfortable, relieved and totally at ease when getting treatment. I never leave reviews but this dental surgery totally deserves it. Even the reception staff were fantastic. Thank you so much. I will recommend you to everyone.

excellent dental services 5 A massive thank you to Ashish Sharma of @fernleigh dental practice. .I needed some treatment done and he took his time, explained what he was doing and made me feel comfortable. It was a real eye opener in terms of best practice and hygiene watching him work compared to past experiences I've had. Thanks again
