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.

It went so well and I was so proud, I had done this whilst awake

5 50 Extractions, Fillings

I have been a patient here for over fifty years. A very nervous, frightened one, who has normally needed sedating. Last month I became a patient of a new dentist, Freddy, who had joined the practice. A very professional, kind man, who immediately made me feel at ease, and built my confidence. I had a back tooth removed and a big filling.

He talked me through every bit of the procedure, was so patient, didn't rush me, and gave me every opportunity to have a break or ask a question. It went so well and I was so proud, I had done this whilst awake.

I could not have done this without the dentists understanding of my terror. I cannot recommend him higher. All of the staff are professional, courteous and friendly, everything runs smoothly and efficiently in a very up to date, clean safe environment.

I wouldn’t go anywhere else

4.5 50 Dental Checkup, Fillings, Extractions • Paid: £650

Visited the clinic today for a check-up, got to have a filling and an extraction. I’m a very nervous patient who cannot get in the chair for treatment without gas and air but the staff are wonderful, very reassuring.

Although I am very anxious about my appointment next week and will inevitably have sleepless nights, my stress levels are 50% less than they would be if I was going elsewhere. The bill wasn’t so nice, £650 but I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

5 50 Dental Checkup, Dental X-Ray

Always felt comfortable attending dental appointments during COVID. Every precaution is taken. Have been going to the practice for years and always been treated with the utmost care, kindness and friendliness. This has continued through this upsetting time, Having been today for my routine check-up, X-rays and scale/polish I can’t fault any of the procedures and care I have received.

We felt completely safe and at ease from beginning to end

5 50 Dentist Consultation

My husband and I went for our umpteenth decade half-yearly checkup with Anita. We were met by the efficient and friendly Nicola from reception at the appointed time at the door. Covid precautions were excellent and we were the only patients in the waiting room. As we were ready to leave the next patient arrived pressing the front doorbell. Nicola let us out by the side door before letting the next patient in by the front door. We felt completely safe and at ease from beginning to end.

I have been more than impressed with the treatment and care I have received

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I have been a patient of Christopher Holden's dental practice for approximately 27 years. I have been more than impressed with the treatment and care I have received. I never feel nervous about having treatment as the staff have instilled me with trust. I always speak highly of the practice to my friends and work colleagues. The staff are always professional and friendly. I visited on the 21st April 2021 and the Covid precautions in place are very reassuring. Thank you for your care and service over the years.

I have felt totally confident that the practice has done everything possible

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I have been a patient at this practice for the past 13years, and have always found the whole team to be very professional whilst at the same time putting the patient at ease. During these worrying times of the pandemic, I have felt totally confident that the practice has done everything possible to ensure the safety of patients and staff and would have no hesitation in encouraging anyone to attend when necessary. I am personally very grateful for all the hard work and dedication from the staff at all times not just during the Covid pandemic.

I received reassurance and understanding and have always been treated respectfully

4.5 50 Dentist Consultation

After neglecting my teeth for years, having been terrified of dental procedures, I became a patient of Dr Holden. I received reassurance and understanding and have always been treated respectfully. I don't think I could have found a better dental practice anywhere. The staff members are pleasant and polite and although I am still a little nervous, the standard of treatment is exceptional and this along with the pleasant and positive attitude of the team, gives me the confidence to keep attending.

This is a superb dental practice with the highest standards and up to date care

5 50 Dental Checkup

I am one of those very 'anxious' patients often associated with dental care. My fears stem from memories of the School Dental Service around in the 1950s. I have been with this practice for around 20 years since returning to live in Chesterfield, following several 9recommendations. Christopher and his team help me greatly with my anxieties. They are quietly reassuring and supportive during any treatment.

Fortunately Christopher offers conscious sedation if required and I always feel very safe in his care and that of his nurses. I recently attended a for a routine checkup and was extremely confident with all the Covid safety measures in place. This is a superb dental practice with the highest standards and up to date care.
