About Dr Jatin Patel

Dr Jatin Patel graduated from Guy’s Hospital in 1999 before working as an NHS dentist for the next eight years across several clinics in the Southeast of England. In 2008, Dr Patel started Egham Dental Care, an entirely new practice with the aim of delivering exceptional dental care without any of the limitations found when operating within the NHS. 

At Egham Dental Care, Dr Patel provides a wide range of services, including cosmetic dentistry treatments like smile makeovers, dental veneers, and crown placement, as well as general procedures such as root canal treatment. 

Dr Patel continues to supplement and enhance his existing knowledge and skill set and has undertaken a Diploma in Dental Implantology with the Eastman Dental Institute, which is part of the University College London. 

As a Dental Phobia Certified dentist, Dr Patel takes the time to provide emotional support to nervous patients while ensuring dental care is delivered in a gentle manner. Dr Patel uses two types of sedation at his clinic; intravenous sedation and relative analgesia.

IV sedation gives anxious patients a relaxed and sleepy feeling throughout the treatment. Relative analgesia uses nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, which is fast-acting with a quicker recovery time. 

Egham Dental Care

Egham Dental Care is situated in Old Windsor, Berkshire. The practice is carefully designed to help you feel at ease with a relaxing atmosphere throughout. This calming environment is further enhanced by the friendly team working at the clinic. 

The team at Egham Dental Care take hygiene standards very seriously and stringent sterilisation processes in use at the clinic. 

All treatments and procedures at Egham Dental Care are performed in a considered and gentle manner. Services range from general dental procedures like fillings and root canal treatments to cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening, crown and veneer placements, and smile makeovers. Sedation is available for nervous patients. The clinic also provides emergency dental appointments.

A really lovely dental practice. I won't go anywhere else. I have always suffered massive anxiety around going to the dentist however this practise has really put me at ease and I feel totally safe.

I have had dental phobia since I was a child and have always had to force myself to go to the dentist- usually when I had left it so long I had work to be done. I have rarely been to the same dentist twice and before I found Jatin I had already had a check up with a pending appointment with another dentist and bottled out. I knew I had to follow through with dental treatment so I scoured google until I found Jatin and was so impressed with Prit’s style I decided to give him a go. I went through 2 difficult fillings, root canal and also had a crown fitted and my phobia has now well and truly gone. Jatin is so naturally able to I still calm and confidence and I put it down to his sincere understanding and empathy with nervous patients. He has a great sense of humour e.g when my tongue got in the way he compared it to a bouncer in a nightclub. After so much treatment my last hurdle was the hygiene treatment and I am now completely cured. Jatin has literally changed my life. Phobias are horrible but mostly embarrassing. Jatin just understood and made me feel normal.

Mr. Patel & his team are fab for all the family. He is very calm, kind, thorough & gentle. My children are not big on dentist visits and really do not mind going now that we are with this fabulous and kind dental practice. Feeling extremely safe here - from reception to treatment - everyone is super friendly, super kind & calm and even during covid-19 crisis we all feel in the best of hands. The staff are all very reassuring, take time to explain every step of the treatment and wait for the patient to be settled and OK before they begin. Recommend highly & think nobody will be afraid coming to this lovely, friendly dentist!

I am generally nervous of dentists - however I found Dr Jatin Patel and his team very professional, friendly and made me feel very at ease in nice bright surgery rooms and super clean ie Covid19 safe. I went to discuss having my teeth whitened and needed my teeth hygienistically cleaned which I usually get very anxious about, as I have very sensitive teeth/gums but Dr Patel is very patient and explained the whole treatment for me, very clearly and gave me a lot of confidence as I opted for home kit whitening treatment and I left the surgery very confident and happy. So I personally highly recommend going to Egham Dental Surgery.

Jatin has been amazing with me over the pass 6 years. I hated the dentist as a child and throughout my 20's, now I have someone I believe in and trust who care about me, my health and wellbeing who can calm me down and reassure me.

I used to hate the dentist and hadn't been for over 10 years when my parents suggested I try Egham Dental Care. I walked in to register and booked a first appointment, as the date of ,y appointment got closer I started to get scared about going and thought about cancelling. When I walked in for my appointment I was made to feel welcome and after talking to Dr Jatin Patel he made me feel re assured. I have been with him for a few years now and have made every routine appointment without dreading it.

I had a bad experience years ago at a dentist and have not been back since. I got the worst toothache about a week ago so had to find a dentist as the pain was excruciating. I found Egham Dental Care online and read some of the reviews and also saw the Dental Phobia certificate so decided to call. I was in a bit of a state when I called but Dr Patel's wife was so kind and reassuring it really helped put me at ease. I had an emergency appointment and then treatment the following Monday. Again I was a bit of wreck but Dr Patel talked me through the procedure and kept allowing to have breaks to catch my breath. He was so kind as I was literally shaking in the chair. I have just had my second treatment today and it was a lot better and I was a lot calmer. I can see getting over my phobia after my one bad experience after seeing Dr Patel. I can highly recommend this dental surgery to anyone but especially if you have any fears of the dentist

I was very scared of going to a dentist. I have a very sensitive gag reflex and couldn’t cope with fingers and instruments in my mouth particularly the suction! I had not been to a dentist for several years and had 4 broken teeth. I found Egham Dental Care following a google search for “dentist phobic” specialists and I haven’t looked back. They are all so supportive and understanding. I started having sedation to be able to cope with treatment. I have had one implant and have started the process for 2 more. I can’t speak highly enough of all of them. The standard of Jatin’s work is incredible. Recently a piece broke off of one tooth and I went straight to them to have it repaired. Previously I would have ignored it and stored up problems for the future. I can manage most treatments now without sedation. I can’ thank them enough for their support, friendliness and very high standard of work and care. I have recommended them to my friends.

Fantastic Dentist, I am extremely nervous about going to the Dentist but Dr Patel and his friendly staff have changed that, thank you. Had to have emergency work on a cracked tooth and the whole process was over in a flash, sensitively done. He has a very calming approach, clearly explaining what he will do and what is happening during the treatment. I can't recommend him highly enough. So impressed I will even go back for check ups! Thanks so much.

Been seeing Jatin as my dentist for well over a decade. He’s very professional, incredibly knowledgable and makes you feel at ease. Still got a perfect set of teeth thanks to him. Can’t recommend him enough.

Faultless service, excellent value for money and a credit to the industry to which has a reputation for trepidation. Dr Patel and all staff members will keep me coming back.

I was told that I needed to have a wisdom tooth removed by my normal dentist, due to a filling not being successful. I am a very nervous dental patient and so wanted to be referred to a sedation clinic. The nhs where taking a long time and I was in such pain so I started looking around. I found Dr Patel clinic in egham and was welcomed by Prit who calmed me down imediately. She suggested I come in to meet Dr Patel and to see the clinic. After a good chat with them both we booked in the extraction two days later. I had diazepam to relax me and so by the time I got to Dr Patel I was in a much better state of mind. The procedure was over very quickly and throughout Dr Patel was kind and explained everything to me. Providing some very needed TLC made everything much easier than I thought it would be. Dr Patel and Priti were amazing from start to finish. My toothache has disappeared and I have found a dentist who I have 100%confidence in.

As a regular customer, who travels 75 miles to Egham for regular check-ups and dental services, I always have my complete faith in Dr Jatin. I used to have extreme fear in dentist. In fact, I had avoided all dental care for 11 continuous year, due to my personal dental phobia. It was until 2009 when I had no choice but to visit a dentist as my teeth condition cannot be worse. Dr Jatin and his crew have eased my nerve since since my first visit. In fact, it was his calm and willingness to explain in detail what would happen for each session, and his excellent "mental skill" that helped me feel better and better mentally after each treatment session. My dental fear still exists till today. However, it seems to go away when I speak to Dr Jatin, and that's what makes me visit him regularly.

An excellent dental practice with a friendly team. As someone who has constantly had dental issues from my teens, going to the dentist has therefore never been a highlight. However Egham Dental Care is very different - they are excellent in their work and customer care. They make a nervy block very comfortable.
