Best Local Businesses: Tendental, dentists in Clapham

The Tendental team

The Tendental team

When you think of a typical high street business a dental clinic is unlikely to spring to mind.  Nor is a trip to the dentist typically seen as a pleasant sensory experience (if anything, the opposite applies).  Tendental’s two branches in Clapham and Balham go a long way to overturning both assumptions; these thoroughly thought out, attractive clinics bring professionalism, modernity and a touch of class to high street dentistry. James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Clapham South and Balham office on Balham Hill highly recommend this extremely well thought out local business.

The clinics are run by business partners and firmly established dental practitioners Dr Martin Wanendeya and Dr Nikhil Sisodia, both of whom have a string of impressive professional qualifications following their names.  We met Nik at the Balham practice, just down the road from our Estate Agents’ Clapham South and Balham office on a slightly stormy Tuesday for an introduction to the clinic and its staff, and were pleasantly surprised at the advances Martin and Nik are making in reshaping dentistry as we know it.

Tendental’s most radical departure from the gloomy norm relates to the senses.  This practice has created olfactory, auditory, tactile and visual environments designed to ease the nerves and relax the mind.  Our team were particularly taken by the TV screens wired to the ceiling above each dentist’s chair; if they wish to, each patient can choose what television programme to watch (and listen to via wireless headphones) as they recline.  The clinic is also scented at all times with fragrances chosen to soothe and relax – the infamous ‘dentist smell’ may be a thing of the past!  In another clever touch, the trays of sharp instruments which give some patients the shivers have been concealed out of view of the dentist’s chair.

As is clear the emphasis at Tendental is on the patient experience and in the second instalment of our blog on this local practice we’ll be describing in detail one of the free advice sessions the team offers.  As a result of this first meeting the patient is able to make informed decisions about which procedures will be most beneficial without feeling pressured.  As with the treatment room itself, the consultation experience has undergone a wholly positive transformation.

Tendental’s ground-breaking approach to dental care is in part down to its being an independent clinic.  Nik and Martin had the privilege of being able to develop their vision of a dental practice, and judging by their success so far their combination of experience and client focus has certainly paid off.  The clinic has built up an excellent local reputation and is now the largest referral practice in South London; an accomplished team with a variety of specialisms makes for a handy point of contact when another surgery’s waiting list exceeds availability.  Several members of James Pendleton Estate Agents’ Clapham South and Balham team have had positive experiences at the clinic and we’ll be explaining why in our upcoming post.

Tendental have taken their clients’ busy lives into account too.   As Estate Agents in South West London we’re well aware of the area’s family friendly reputation and Tendental have taken this into account, taking on a nationally acclaimed children’s dental specialist and opening at family friendly hours (they’re thinking of extending opening hours at weekends.  There are also plans to extend the business as a whole due to its growing popularity; so you may soon find a Tendental near you wherever you are.
