The Educational Supervisors: Satin and Hardik have been friends since college. They both qualified in 2006, from Cardiff University and The Royal London & St Bart’s Hospital respectively. Together they have created the SmileArt Dental brand and have set up practices in Buckhurst Hill (IG9) and Winchmore Hill (N21).
They enjoy all types of general NHS and private dental treatment, and have undertaken courses in Cosmetic & Advanced Restorative Dentistry, aesthetic dentistry, Invisalign and Inman Aligner orthodontic systems. Hardik is currently completing the Diploma in Primary Care Oral Surgery at the Royal College. Hardik is also a trained Hypnotherapist and uses these skills along with IV sedation to manage and treat nervous patients. Satin and Hardik have completed the Postgraduate Certificate in Dental Education from The University of Bedfordshire. They are both members of the Royal College of Surgeons and the Local Dental Committee. Since 2012 they have enjoyed mentoring 18 DFT trainees.
They both have a passion for providing quality and ethical general dental care within a practice which specialises in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry. They have already introduced orthodontics, implantology, sedation and anti-ageing facial treatments to Valley Dental Practice.
Valley Dental Practice is a mixed NHS/Private practice. Satin and Hardik have a great partnership, superb dental team, mixed patient base and a well equipped, modern surgery where new dental graduates will have an excellent opportunity to develop their skills and thrive to become ethical and accomplished practitioners.
This surgery was established over 40 years ago. In December 2012 the surgery had major refurbishment work and changed from a two surgery to a four-surgery practice. The new modern surgery is air conditioned and on par with latest government guidelines and protocols. It is fully computerised with a high-quality digital x-ray system and digital intraoral scanner. We also have access to digital OPG and CBCT scanner at our sister practice in Winchmore Hill.
There is a staff room/kitchen and separate dedicated sterilisation room.
Valley Dental Practice is also a member of the BDA Good Practice Scheme. We have a wide skill mix comprising of 9 practitioners from DFT, Hygienist, dentists with special interests in Cosmetic Dentistry, IV Sedation, Endodontics, Oral Surgery and a visiting Restorative Consultant (Mr Mital Patel BSc(Hons) BDS MFDS RCS Eng MSc).

The Area: Valley Dental Practice is located in a residential area between Buckhurst Hill and Loughton. The practice is surrounded by affluent areas such as Chigwell and Loughton but also has pockets of low social-economic housing.
The surgery is located in Essex, but is still within the M25 and easy to commute to by car. There is ample free unrestricted car parking spaces opposite the surgery for both staff and patients.
The surgery is a 5 minute walk from Buckhurst Hill Underground (Central Line) station. Bus route 167 (Ilford to Debden) passes opposite the surgery. We are a 10 minute walk from the popular Queens Road, which hosts a wide range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Other Points of Interest: Accommodation is easy to organise and the practice manager will be more than happy to help with this. David Lloyd Leisure Centre (Chigwell) is a 5 minute drive away, and there are numerous golf clubs nearby. The practice is a 15 minute tube ride from Stratford’s Westfield shopping centre and 20 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station. Buckhurst Hill is “TOWIE” central, so pack your fake tan and don’t forget to bleach your teeth!
