Gum Disease Therapy

Gum disease is one of the most common oral diseases and affects people of all ages. Caused by a build-up of plaque and bacteria on the gum line. Gum disease can lead to bleeding, inflammation and redness and if left to progress, can lead to tooth loss.

Gum disease treatment (periodontal treatment) is provided by our specialist periodontist Dr Raman. The majority of Periodontal treatment involves thoroughly cleaning the tooth root surface. However, advanced cases may it also involve surgical and restorative techniques.

After initial stabilisation of the condition has been achieved, a thorough lifelong home care regime is required to prevent future lapses, along with regular monitoring and maintenance from your dentist and dental hygienist.

If you are suffering with symptoms of gum disease book a review with our dental hygiene team today.



We recommend all Guildford Dental Centre patients have regular hygiene treatments at least once to twice a year alongside your routine dental health reviews.

Love this dentist, been a customer as long as I can remember. I travel up from West Sussex after moving 3 years ago. That in itself is testament to the service and reception I receive. Jacqui on reception is exceptional and represents the front of house with professionalism and a lovely smile.

My wife suffered with gum infection and toothache for a long time until we meet Kabita in Guildford dental clinic. I have to say she is very kind and warm hearted person. She understood my wife’s condition and tried to relax her in a very friendly way as my wife is very sensitive. I should also mention how good and professional her colleague Seema was. During the whole appointment both Kabita and Seema took care of my wife greatly. Thank you so much both of you.

Recently attended the practice for my first ever hygienist appointment. Parampreet not only provided an excellent level of service on the day, but was kind enough to give me some expert advice on how to maintain a good level of dental hygiene moving forward, with some daily routines to follow. I would highly recommend Guildford Dental Centre both in terms of results as well as the kind and accommodating nature of the people who work there, all of whom made me feel very welcome on the day.

11th July 2022

The dentist was very friendly and explained everything very clearly


Paddy Willis

8th July 2022

Very happy with all aspects of dental care at this surgery.



Been a few times to Guildford Dental Centre Staff are all very professional the practice has a calm happy feel. Kavi was very good with my child and we didn’t feel rushed. She was chatty letting me know of issues with teeth. The hygienists are both nice and have always done a good job.


John Redmond

I've been a satisfied client of Guildford Dental Centre (GDC) for 7 years now, first with Terry and latterly with Jonathon Tan, and I've been happy with their dental care throughout this time. Trusting your Dentist's advice, approach and expertise is one of those important areas in life and I'm very confident in using and recommending GDC. I realised recently that I'd adopted a tooth-free smile because I was embarrassed to show my two front teeth, but Jonathon replaced an old crown and compositely filled the other cracked tooth, together with erosion on the adjacent teeth, and now I have a fulsome smile back! Any problems are quickly resolved and finally the receptionists are excellent, polite and helpful, especially Jackie.


Aravin Srithar

I went to get my teeth cleaned by Dr Kavi and not only was the experience pleasant but it was also very informative and I came out knowing a lot more about how to take care of my teeth !



Clean, professional practise. Had my teeth whitened after bonding and was very please with the results. Highly recommend Dr Kavi. Great communication and painless treatment.

I was explained about the whole process and I was constantly asked if I was ok and comfortable.

Everyone is very friendly and efficient. Parampreet Kaur did my cleaning. She was very gentle but thorough. She offered me the new Air Flow cleaning and explained the extra cost. It did an excellent job and my teeth are cleaner and whiter than they've been in ages. Worth the additional expense. Having your teeth cleaned is never much fun but I highly recommend Parampreet as she was friendly, efficient and gentle.

22nd May 2022

As ever, very friendly and helpful exchanges with both reception and clinician, and good advice about future treatment that I am happy to embark upon. The waiting area is very comfortable in providing distanced seating and the surgery as a whole is pleasantly light and very clean The music playing in the treatment room I found unobtrusive; jazz is a good choice.

1st April 2022

My retainer broke in the morning, I telephoned the practice and they fitted me in that morning to fit fir a replacement- excellent service

30th March 2022

The work was carried out efficiently reliably and painlessly with a commentary of the process as it was in train with the ability to stop the process if painful at any time by a gesture. Not required. I am genuinely gratified by the way dental treatment has improved in the last decade. My generation was scared stiff of the dentist in our youth and that fear probably stayed with us. I rate the dentist who deals with me very highly both as a professional and a highly emotionally intelligent person who puts yopu at your ease and in whom one has great confidence. Can't expect better frankly.


Katie Radford

Recently finished my Invisalign treatment with one of the Dentists at the practice, Tessa. Had the best overall experience, Tessa has a way of calming you down and is always up for a chat which I personally love! My teeth now also look perfect, which has improved my confidence massively!!

Alexander Muller

Just had my dental appointment with Dr. Brumder - she was really wonderful! Put me very much at ease, very professional and understanding. Would highly recommend this practice, also had a hygienist appointment with Parampreet a couple of weeks ago who was brilliant, took good care of my teeth. For people who don't like the dentist very much, I would definitely recommend this practice.

Check was thorough- could not ask for more.


Danielle Holdsworth

I'm terrified of the dentist. Irrational but true. I had a routine check up today and I can honestly say that my appointment with Tara was the best I've ever had. She made me feel more relaxed and in control than I have ever felt and I came away feeling no trauma and not dreading the next appointment. I wouldn't say I enjoyed the experience but I didn't hate it as much as I have in the past which for me, is a win!


neil pritchard

I’m fine with bungee jumping, parachuting, motorcycle racing etc but I’m absolutely terrified of the dentist. Completely irrational and ridiculous since there’s rarely any pain but it’s just the thought of someone tinkering around in there. My bestie, Dr Tan, has changed that over the years… not sure how, but the fear is gone. I even had a root canal; it was not the horror show I had in my head. Cheers doc! See you again soon.


Rowena Shouly

I visited Dr. Ali for a root canal after not having had one for a long time. All I remember from my previous root canals at another dentists was that it was quite uncomfortable and painful. But Dr. Ali put me at ease straight away. He explained the process really well in advance and did a great job, I didn't feel any discomfort at all. He also replaced a crown for me and the whole process went really well. Very professional and courteous at all times. I've been a patient of Dr. Ali for quite some time now and every time I have had any dental treatment it was to a very high standard. I would highly recommend Dr. Ali and the team at Guildford Dental Centre.


Dean Smith

I would highly recommend, the staff here are super friendly and welcoming. The hygienist I saw was very understanding and took great care in cleaning and polishing my teeth. I got home and smiled and astonished at how clean my teeth are now! I actually look forward to going back and can't thank my team there enough! Thank you Guildford Dental Centre! :D


Ashish Gadi

I would strongly recommend Dr Tan at Guildford Dental Centre. I recently got my critical dental treatment done by Dr Tan. He is extremely knowledgeable and a caring dentist. He explained the procedure in great detail and made me super comfortable before the treatment. He also spent good time post the treatment showing the details on X Ray. He is very professional and is very good at what he does as he clearly solved some serious issues with my teeth. Dr Tan is my Dentist for life.

Beverley Lang

This is an efficient, friendly and welcoming practice. All the staff are pleasant and there is no need to be nervous they put you at ease straight away. I have been a patient at this dental surgery for a number of years and Jonathon has been brilliant at looking after my teeth. I highly recommend this practice.


Tara Blackwood

My dentist is great! Always have a great experience.



I highly recommend the Guildford Dental Centre, all of the dentists, receptionists and dental nurses I have met are welcoming, friendly and professional. Dr Tan is an extremely knowledgable, kind, gentle and caring dentist. I had a root canal procedure carried out, he explained each step as he went along and made sure I felt comfortable throughout. The aftercare over the last couple of months has been above and beyond my expectations with regular emails to check on how I was doing. I am glad to have found such a wonderful practice. Thank you for looking after me so well.


Kenny Stark

The hygienist, Szilvia, put me at ease about my treatment. She explained the process in a relaxing and calm manner. Would not hesitate recommending her.


Jeremy McIlroy

I highly recommend Sylvia as an excellent and friendly hygienist, careful and thorough, and always takes the time to explain.


Mohammed Butt

Dr Tan is amazing, I am someone who is petrified of the dentist. Dr Tan has made me comfortable in coming to the dentist and thank goodness everything is good. I can’t recommend the practice or Dr Tan enough.


Uta Roggendorf

I cannot recommend Dr Tan highly enough. I went to see him for a second opinion following a dubious diagnosis by my previous dentist. I had a gum infection which my previous dentist suggested was due to a broken root filling which was holding up part of a bridge. She told me I needed the bridge to be replaced by implants. Dr Tan quickly assessed that the root was completely intact, it was a superficial infection which he treated effectively by removing the infected tissue. His experience, knowledge and caring nature are quite unique. My only regret is that I didn't find Guildford Dental Centre sooner!


Sarah O'Callaghan

Dr Tan is an exceptional dentist. Having visited two other dentists who both wanted to remove one of my molars which had an infected root canal and place an implant, it was so refreshing to find out Dr Tan said he could save the the tooth. Dr Tan spent 4 hours in total over two appointments and rectified my infected root canal, for which I will always be eternally grateful. Dr Tan is extremely gentle and considerate and talks you through the procedure as he works. The team are very warm and friendly and make you feel at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Tan and his team to anyone including my family and friends. Having moved away from the area I still travel back to Dr Tan for my dental treatment, would not trust anyone else.


Adina Havard

The best hygienist I’ve ever met. I thought I lost her, then I called a few practices after being told she now works in Guildford. Sylvia is here!! Booked an appointment straight away and I am happy again. She’s very knowledgeable, honest, and I trust her advice. If you are reading this, I have already changed my toothbrush and it is marvellous. Thank you Sylvia and the very friendly reception staff!


Nicholas Austin

Szilvia Hygienist has been the best Hygienist I have had in the last 35 years. She discusses your oral Hygiene and explains what she is doing. She is calm and patient and very skilled. I have never felt any pain and she is conscientious in her work and carefully examines your teeth and mouth. She is easy to talk to and has a friendly manner. I can comprehensively recommend her to you as someone who look after you and care for you.


Syed Ahmad Salman Haider

Highly recommend the dental hygienist Szilvia. She is very professional and polite and explained all about the teeth hygiene. I went for dental cleaning and polishing she dealt the whole procedure professionally and explained everything very well.


Leah Arber

I have the biggest fear of the dentist Mr Tan and his lovely nurse Georgia helped me so much I would never see another dentist or Nurse so kind and caring Tracy Aber



Excellent service provided by their dentist Ali while performing root canal for 2 of my badly broken teeth. I was worried about pain and suffering but his work and skills made me at ease and comfortable which I was very satisfied with.


Sarah Fletcher

Mr Tan is fantastic! I would highly recommend this gentle, caring and excellent dentist. I had my first adult filling today (at the ripe age of 41) and I didn't even feel it, I look like I have a new tooth. Mr Tan is thorough and very kind. Highly recommended.


Rachel WZ

Straight forward to get an appointment, I was booked on the same day I phoned them. I had terrible experience before with my previous dentist and I was glad I found this place. Dr Ali did a superb job. Calm and listens carefully to what I want.


Sarah Tamimy

Really happy with the job done by the dentist Alee. Very friendly staff and kept reassuring me during the whole visit. I have been to many dentists and he is great. Will be going back again.


Dhafer Al-Amili

Very pleased with the exceptional quality and service my wife recieved from dr ali and the team. We was referred from another clinic because my wifes teeth needed complex work. The dentist was very professional and knowledgeable. We couldnt be any more pleased.


David H

The staff are warm, welcoming and helpful. I was able to get an appointment very quickly after calling. The dentist (alli) who saw me was very honest and experienced. He was able to explain in detail my condition and even suggested it's not urgent so I can wait before doing treatment. No hard sell.


Emma Rush

Outstanding service! I cannot recommend Dr Tan & his team highly enough. I urge any nervous patients to seek treatment under Dr Tan’s care without hesitation. I was a very anxious patient after a very bad experience at a another dental surgery where they told me I was beyond help. How wrong they were! My faith in the dental profession is restored thanks to Dr Tan and his amazing team. I had a pain and stress free root canal treatment on a very tender tooth, under conscious sedation, and I have never been happier. Thank you SO MUCH!


James Muller

I had an emergency over the bank holiday weekend. Dr J Tan was absolutely amazing! He repaired my tooth within an hour and also gave me some great advice. He was very friendly and caring. Amazing service!


Joanna Chambers

I would definitely recommend the Guildford Dental Centre. Everyone there is very welcoming and professional. Jonathan Tan is a very reassuring and understanding dentist. He performed an extraction and throughout the procedure reassured me and made sure I was comfortable. I am an extremely nervous patient and can not thank Jonathan and his dental technician enough for their understanding, reassurance and expertise. I am so pleased with the treatment I was given. Thank you.


Lynn Holton

I have been a patient of Dr Tan's for many years and cant speak more highly of him and his dental work. I have recommended him to friends and they are all very happy in his care. I am a very nervous patient and he is extremely understanding. He explains everything carefully to you and his dental work is excellent. I would recommend him and his staff to any one.looking for a dentist



Always a positive experience at Guildford Dental Centre. Treated with courtesy, kindness and the utmost professionalism at every appointment. I have been a patient of Jonathan's for some years and feel confident that his advice and any subsequent treatments will always be what is right for me.


Kath Easthope

I can’t recommend the Guildford Dental Centre highly enough. Somewhere between being 14 and 44, and for no rationale reason whatsoever, I developed a pathological fear of the dentist. I didn’t go for years until I came across the Guildford Dental Centre and Dr Jonathan Tan. I can’t say I’m now a cool customer and no longer have ‘the nerves’, but everyone at the surgery, from the team at reception, through to Jonathan and Trevor, are completely brilliant and so incredibly professional. They will do anything to make you feel comfortable, are calming, patient and frankly just marvellous at what they do. I’m now a long-term regular because of how they treat and look after you. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone – nervous or otherwise.



I have found everyone I've dealt with at the Guildford Dental Centre to be friendly and helpful. In particular, Jonathan Tan has always been very good to me and has put me at ease, especially so when he took over dental work that another dentist had left unfinished, namely a root filling and an extraction which needed an implant. The implant was in a difficult place but Jonathan achieved it and I have every confidence in him as a dentist. He helped me overcome my nervousness, especially when it came to having impressions taken. If I've phoned up with a problem he has always phoned me back promptly and reassured me. I would definitely recommend this practice.


jed hodgson

I have recently had root canal treatment, bridge and crown. Both Jonathan and Terry provided a great service. Jonathan was extremely professional in exploring options when dealing with a difficult treatment. He ensured that i was comfortable and pain free throughout the procedures.


Shelley Hughes

I am a very nervous patient when it comes to dental work and recently experienced first hand the expertise of Jonathan and his team. They put me at ease during a root canal / filing taking care to ensure everything was handled at my pace. The aftercare is amazing and I would recommend the practice to all my friends and family. Thank you!



The Best Dental Care Around. Terrance and the team are utterly professional and kept me relaxed throughout the whole procedure of my route canal treatment. The practice is spotlessly clean and maintained to a high standard. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you :)


Victoria Tan

I had two of my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr Tan. It was a painless surgery and I did not need to take any painkillers afterwards. There was no swelling and my gum healed very well. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Tan for any dental treatment.


Herman Tan

I'm Herman,Australian, I had two teeth(25 26) that had problem for many years, in Melbourne, three ordinary dentist and a specialist dentist all said that my tooth root ware seriously infection cannot be treated and the teeth must be extracted, my friend recommended to UK Guildford Dental Clinic, I sent my tooth Xray to Dr; Jonathan Tan he told me that my teeth didn't require extraction and he could treat the infection to do root canal, after communication he arranged an appointment for me. Last week I went to UK to see him, I only had to visit him once for approximately three hours, he did root canal well done, now both my teeth and gum are fixed. I'm extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Dr; Jonathan Tan to anyone, He is a professional and brilliant dentist. I reward him a 5 star rating for his work and excellent service.Thank you Dr; Jonathan Tan you saved my both teeth. Best regard. Herman Tan Melbourne 16//6/2017.



Dr Tan cured my terror of undergoing dental work with his friendliness and consideration. Breezed through a root canal.


Stephen Pilbrow

Hi I would just like to say a BIG thank you to Jonathan Trevor and Hilary, between them they have restored my faith in Dentists. I never thought that going to the Dentist could ever be so much fun. Jonathan and his sidekick Trevor are very professional at what they do and they make the whole experience as pain free as they possibly can with a good sense of humour thrown in. Hilary is the icing on the cake, she is the first person that you see when you arrive and the last person that you see before you leave and she is a Gorgeous and very caring young woman, and in my opinion an essential part of the team. Between the three of them they make a visit to the Dentist as pleasurable as humanly possible. I could not recommend Jonathan Trevor and Hilary more highly than if they were my own family. A very sincere thank you Steve


Lisa Staniford

Jonathan Tan is the best. Absolutely dedicated, professional and trustworthy.


kate gibson

Dr Jonathan Tan is a fantastic dentist. He listened to all my concerns in a caring manner and gave me various options. Each option he described in alot of detail and helped me make an informed decision. I would highly recommend visiting him. I have no fear about visiting the dentist now.


Paola Ash

Brilliant service. Lovely dentist Highly recommend Jon Tan. Thankyou very much Paola


Nick Charlton

Lovely people, very friendly



My wife went to Terry after our original dentist refused to believe she had an abscess! Terry sorted out very tricky root canal surgery and put the whole thing right. He's an excellent dentist, the whole team are great. We've recommended GDC to many friends and will continue to do so.


Wendy Cummings

Very friendly dentists and hygienists, who explain what they are doing and why, and don't make you feel like just another patient


Veronica Matewu

I had my wisdom tooth extracted by Dr Tan and found him and the team absolutely top class. He was very attentive and understanding, as I am a nervous patient. He explained everything to me and the procedure itself went even better than I thought it would be, for that I am forever grateful.


Neil Ockenden

If you are looking for a no nonsense Dentist, who tells it as it is, then look no further. Elizabeth and I, have been looked after by Terry McNulty and his extremely dedicated team, for 20 years or more. When you have the best....


Stephen Jones

My wife and I are long standing patients at Guildford Dental Centre. Terry McNulty is excellent - I cannot praise him highly enough. I have recommended him to many friends and they all have good things to say about their experience at the practice.
