Freedom of Choice, Versatile, Augment, Integrity, Confidence and Reassurance

Established in 1981 we are an independently owned and run Family Dental Clinic conveniently located in the cosmopolitan Upper High Street, Ashford Town Center (focusing on a traditional boutique local dental business partnership approach NOT a mass market, institutional, (mini) corporate or limited liability company approach). All adult care is provided Privately and Free NHS Dental Care is provided for children under 18 years old.

Our highly prized independent Dentists together with the help of our exceptional team will discuss all your treatment and care options and help formulate the most suitable treatment care plan. The cost implications of all treatment will be fully discussed before proceeding with any treatment and your budgetary and lifestyle considerations will be taken into account and managed.

Our younger patients like to come in to look over our gadgets and play with the chair (to them it's a spaceship!). Usually, by the time they are four years old, they thoroughly enjoy coming to visit us; there are not many places where they have so much fun and receive so much attention. And at the same time, we check their teeth!

All of us at the practice realize that each patient has individual expectations, aspirations, fears and concerns and that these together with modern dental techniques determine the most appropriate treatment. It's the small things we do that makes the difference in all we do.

Local & International Interdependent Heritage in and around Ashford Dental

Mesolithic and Paleolithic secular tools have been found around the town dating back as far as 1500 BC.

We have located some evidence to show Roman footings and links to the Roman Town wall around Ashford Town Center. A Roman road from Tenterden to Canterbury ran on the line of Beaver Road along Station road and northward to Kennington. The Romans built the Saxon Shoreway, a line of defense which runs on the outskirts of Ashford.

Since the 5th Century, Ashford and the surrounding villages in Kent have incorporated and preserved a distinct domestic and international heritage.

Interestingly Kent also had its own laws, which gave citizens extra freedoms. The custom of "Gavelkind" prevailed in which men were freeholders rather than tenants, and every man "hath some part of his own to live upon". English common law has significant roots in the Kingdom of Kent.

The Quakers had their first meeting at 11 New Rents; a hidden doorways connects this to the reception area. The building was purchased from Robert Stead in 1678 and used initially as a Meeting House for non sectarian friends promoting there is something of God in everyone.

Ashford has been a trade, communications and a central travel hub for 5 Railway lines since the 19th century. The local St Marys Church has been a landmark since the 13th century used for local service and entertainment.

Some evidence uncovered suggests an earlier Norman Church rests beneath the nave as referred to in the Doomsday book in 1086.

The Town had witnessed a significant nonconformist (heterodox interpretation) and secular population fighting for respect, freedom to think, equity and justice. John Brown a cutler was persecuted in Ashford for being a heretic by Archbishop Warham and burnt to death in Martyrs Field in Ashford on Whitsunday 1517. Queen Mary a Catholic similarly burnt local Protestants who also lay rest in Martyrs Field in Ashford due to sectarian viewpoints.

A historic 17th Century Jacobean period house - Godinton House and Gardens - this period saw an integrated renaissance in Architecture, Literature, Arts, Crafts, Technology, and Sciences.

We have undergone several rebuilds and external works including an extension in early 2000. We have preserved the original medieval oak timber within the 1st floor and we have conservatively reinforced and supported the existing structural building with modern steel and glass to bring a fresh lease of life back to this historic town center building.

The redesign was aimed at achieving a modern New England look, sensitive to local architectural and building traditions. The Kent pegg tiles have Roman origins and the timber cladd goes back to the Saxons if not further prehistory.

The complete refurbishment was commissioned in 2016 to bring back both a local yet international, timeless simple yet modern covetable look back into the Upper High Street in Ashford Town Center. (Our new modern yet simple building integrates Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe).

We wanted to preserve some of the local features including the window shutters which have ancient roots. The preservation order on the original second floor wooden sash window constantly requires maintenance!. The tear glass lanterns used in the once iconic Corn Exchange in Ashford Town opposite Ashford Market. The cladding was inspired by traditional and modern use both locally in Ashford and internationally in areas where the Patels studied, reflected and have family roots. We have started to reinvigorate a fresh beginning and be ambassadors for a locally integrated identity, style, and cosmopolitan connections.

The development and evolution in and around Ashford International Town Center continues unabated. Our Mutually Symbiotic, Syntopical integrated insight, local culture and interconnections will continue to define us and, what and how we behave, an ineffable unity in variety.
