Mr Anthony Whittome BDS (Birmingham); D.P.D.S (Bristol)

GDC number: 58339


Mr Whittome qualified from Birmingham University in 1983 and achieved a Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies from Bristol University in 2004. Tony took over the practice twenty-three years ago after spending the early part of his dental career in Sussex. He guided the practice to achieve the prestigious BDA Good Practice recognition firstly in 2006 and every year since then.


As well as delivering the professional, high quality dental services that give the practice its reputation for excellence, Tony specialises in patient care, taking the time to listen to patients to make sure that they get exactly the treatment that they want, and looking after them from the moment they step into the surgery to the moment they leave. He is well experienced in all aspects of dentistry and attends many postgraduate courses in order to provide the latest techniques and procedures.


Tony lives in Tunbridge Wells and is married to Jane and they have four daughters.


Samir Patel B.D.S (Lond)

GDC number: 80254


Dr Patel qualified from Guy's Hospital Dental Institute in 2001. He has been a dentist at the practice since 2002 and has built a strong reputation with his patients during this time. He prides himself on providing ethical and excellent dental care.


He is committed to continued professional development and has carried out higher level courses in London and as far afield as Miami, USA, in complex teeth restoration procedures and aesthetic solutions. He has a keen interest in minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. Dr Patel has also completed courses in dental implants and now provides implant solutions for missing teeth.


Samir is particularly good with nervous patients and is able to build a good rapport with children. When he is not at the surgery or busy keeping up to date with new materials and techniques in dental care, he likes to keep fit by attending the gym regularly and taking part in kick boxing training.
