our story

Dr Sahil Thakkar BDS MFDS RCPS (Glas)

Principal Dentist

King's College London 2015
GDC Reg No. 258652

Hey! I’m Sahil 👋🏽

I’m the principal dentist at Dickens Yard Dental. I’m a general and cosmetic dentist with a focus on high quality, minimally-invasive dentistry.

Combining a friendly and relaxed approach, I strongly believe in making a visit to the Dentist memorable, enjoyable and pain-free. Turning it from an experience that people dread into one that we will look forward to. I take great care and pride in putting nervous patients at ease.

I am passionate about postgraduate education and since qualifying from King’s College London, I have trained under some of the leaders in the field, achieving full membership of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons (Glasgow). I am currently working towards a postgraduate diploma in Orthodontics and am an Invisalign Elite Provider.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Our Values

Straight Talking

It’s in our DNA. Clear pricing, clear language. And we’ll always show you what’s going on – a picture paints a thousand words.

First Class Care

We’re highly trained, we love what we do, we have great tech. We’ll leave no stone unturned to ensure that you have the best care for you and your family.


We want our experience to be real, not just aspirational. That’s why we offer membership plans to make the essentials accessible and interest-free options so you can spread your investment.


We’re all about reducing our footprint. Digital scanners mean no messy impressions or plaster models. We’re paperless, use less plastic, recycle more, and stock eco brushes and toothpaste.


We’re warm, inclusive and approachable. We’re not here to judge, if it matters to you, then it really matters to us. We care about our patients, our community and our team.

Exceptional Experience

It doesn’t feel like going to the dentist. It’s different. Relaxed, calm, maybe even fun. We’ll do all we can to make your experience a remarkable one!


We’re easy to find and open when you’re free. No more taking time out to see the Dentist. Drop by after work or on the weekends.


We believe that healthy mouths shouldn’t just happen at our practice. That’s why our clinicians work with local schools to ensure that oral health starts young.


We’re always looking to be better, whether that’s through more training, new systems or investing in new technology. We also love feedback – good or bad, we’re always looking to improve.
