About SE9 Dental Care
Dentist in Eltham
We are not a NHS practice. That means we not only treat dental disease, but we also provide cosmetic treatments to improve your Smile and confidence.
We don’t have targets to hit. That means we can focus on your requirements, prepare your personalised treatment plan and deliver it at the speed you set. You are in the driver’s seat and all of our actions are set with your best interest in mind.
We are a mercury free practice. That means we only provide tooth coloured metal free fillings.
We invest a lot of time and effort in examination, treatment planning and discussion. We take coloured intra oral photos & intra oral 3D scan of your teeth & gums before & after treatment. In most cases, you will be shown the end result before starting treatment. Visualisation of your dental problem before & after would give you a good understanding of the problem and therefore help you in decision making.
There is no sales process! We urge all patients to take as much time as required in choosing a treatment and encourage them to ask as many questions as they want. We do not commence treatment until you have provided full informed consent.
We offer a On Time Guarantee. We work by appointment and guarantee to see you within 10 minutes of your appointed time.
About Our Dentist
Dr Kedar Gadgil
BDS, PG Cert Implantology
Principal Dentist & Owner
GDC Reg No - 84774
I qualified as a dentist in 2000 from the University of Mumbai, India. Then I did post graduate training in Oral Surgery (Whipps Cross University Hospital) and Implantology (University of Warwick).
Having worked as an associate dentist for many years in London & the South East, I decided to set up SE9 Dental Care with a singular focus of providing ethical personalised oral health care. I provide a full range of dentistry and have a special interest in Smile Makeovers. We go to great lengths to ensure that our patients receive 100% satisfaction every time. I cover a broad range of dentistry but if a case is beyond my remit then we arrange for a relevant specialist to treat you. Over the years I have delivered thousands of Happy Smiles and do look forward to delivering yours!
During a check up appointment, detailed intra oral and extra oral examination would be carried out. Diagnostic tools like digital x- rays would be used to gather more information if required. All the findings would be recorded and informed to patient. Written estimates/treatment plans would be provided and informed consent obtained before commencing any treatment. Information leaflets and samples would be provided to help patient understand the problem/solution.
At SE9 Dental Care we have a strong focus on preventative dentistry. We explain the importance of good oral hygiene and maintenance to all patients. We provide scaling in a painless way. Regular follow up appointments are encouraged till such time that oral hygiene is satisfactory.
SE9 Dental Care is mercury and amalgam free practice. We only use tooth coloured filling materials of a superior quality and strength. As with all treatments, we aim to provide durable fillings in a painless way.
At SE9 Dental Care we provide replacement of missing teeth using dentures, bridge work and implants. Best materials and laboratories are used to fabricate the prosthesis.
For weak teeth that need crowns, we use porcelain of high strength and appearance. Metal is used in exceptional circumstances.
In the event that a tooth has poor prognosis and/or has failed, it would need to be extracted. At SE9 Dental Care we aim to perform all extractions in a painless manner. Where ever possible, the tooth would be saved by performing root canal treatment (endodontic treatment). In complex cases, specialists like oral surgeons and endodontists would be delivering treatment with patient consent.
SE9 Dental Care takes pride in delivering cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening and smile design. All cosmetic treatments are planned carefully after understanding patient expectations. Cosmetic treatments are only provided after the oral cavity is disease free and healthy and patient demonstrates good plaque control measures.
At SE9 Dental Care we provide implant supported tooth replacements for those who desire fixed replacement teeth. Dental implants are the next best after natural teeth. They greatly improve eating ability and a person’s confidence.
