About Christopher Holden and Associates

Hundreds of thousands of people in this country avoid achieving that perfect smile due to the fear of the dentist. Christopher Holden & Associates is a dental practice dedicated to the care of anxious and frightened patients. It doesn’t matter if patients need a brighter whiter smile, the replacement of unsightly silver fillings or the replacement of spaces without dentures this can all be achieved with the wide range of anxiety control techniques available.

The team at Christopher Holden & Associates comprises two dentists, a dental therapist and dental hygienist and a team of nurses capably co-ordinated by a professional practice manager. The practice has been on its present site since 1952 and behind the façade of a traditional Victorian house is a state of the art dental clinic with of over 10, 000 patients.

Patients like stability and need to trust their dentist. In so many dental practices dentists come and go and patients quite rightly do not like that. In our practice Christopher Holden and Anita Patel have been practising together for over a decade. Christopher Holden has been at the practice for nearly 30 years.

We really care about our patients and that is why we have such a large patient base. We are also lucky that we are trained and skilled to provide such a wide range of dentistry at very competitive prices. Quite simply we aim to deliver the highest quality of service at the best price.

All patients receive a choice of treatments to achieve their needs. The patient can then choose the treatment that best fits need, lifestyle and budget.

We welcome new and anxious patients.

Treated like a king

5 50 Fillings, Extractions, Sedation for dental treatments, Dental Checkup • Paid: £719

1 check up then the next day 3 fillings 2x teeth out and I v sedation

If you are very nervous, then this is the place to be. They are great and not over priced. I needed treatment asap and was so bad at another dentist. I was in tears and rang this place. I was treated like a king from start to finish and they saw me the same day. Great and they give very good sedation.

I will not worry about this everyday

5 50 Sedation for dental treatments

I have had the most overwhelming phobia of the dentist for the past 20 years. I am 38 years old and this has resulted in my mouth being in a terrible state. As much as i suffered in pain with one thing and another the less likely i wanted to go to the dentist. Over the years i visited a couple but never returned after my intial appointment as my fear and total anxiety was never understood or appreciated. I first Christopher 2 years ago and he filled me with such hope and relief but because the phobia was all encompassing it took me 2 years to go back. The last 2 years have been a living nightmare with pain and no sleep just thinking about going or what ifs for not going.
I visited Christopher 3 weeks again and was booked in for 3.11.11 (yestserday). How i made it there i don't know but thank goodness i did. I was made to feel like a normal human being and that being like this was something that they totally understood. I was consciously sedated which left me with no memories of what happened. The staff are just wonderful and they have just rung me today to see if i am OK and if i had any questions etc... I have another appointment booked for the 25th of November and i can honestly say i will not worry about this everyday. I only wish i had met Christopher and all his wonderful staff years ago. I hope this helps anyone who has a fear because i promise you if i can do it so you can you.

Couldn't ask for a better dentist

4.1 50 Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment?

Was very happy with all treatment i have received!

I had a bad experience with my previous dentist but they really have restored my faith in dentists! I feel they always have time for me, also they have treated my questions relating to my teeth and my eating disorder very sensitively. They seem on time and able to stick to there quotes. Couldn't ask for a better dentist

Would you recommend the clinic?

I would definitely recommend them, especially for nervous patients. I only wish i would have found this practice sooner. They clean, thorough and supportive staff

Would you return for further treatment?
