Sara Carr

I am one of the hygienists at The Gallery Dental Practice. I graduated from Sheffield University with a diploma in Dental Hygiene and Therapy in 2014 and prior to that I worked as a dental nurse for 7 years. I’ve always enjoyed working with people, and the bonus of my job now is that I get to help people develop their skills and knowledge so that they are able to take control of their health. In my spare time I often go up north to visit family and friends, or into Brighton and London for days out to find new places to visit.

Which Dentist?

Going to the dentist is pretty near the bottom of things we want to see in our diary.
Nevertheless, having found a good practice in The Gallery, I, and two more generations in
our family keep going on a regular basis: hygienist and dentist. You learn that good
hygiene and hygienist means you need the dentist less often!
But when you do, you need a dentist, and preferably one who knows you. The team at The
Gallery tick all the boxes for me. And you can park across, or a step along the road!
When I’m asked which dentist I use, I recommend The Gallery every time.


We are very happy to make a round trip of over 100 miles each time

“We are very happy to make a round trip of over 100 miles each time we visit Ajitha and her team at The Gallery Dental Practice. We have been doing this for many years and have always been delighted with the service provided. Ajitha and her colleagues are professional, experienced, understanding and always cheerful and attentive.”

Peter Dacombe

Excellent team and I am entirely satisfied with them

“I have been a patient of Ajitha Rahim for a few years now (having been with the practice for many more), and have had various work carried out efficiently by her. I have recently had dentures made by her and her excellent team and I am entirely satisfied with them. My experience at The Gallery Dental Practice has always been one of complete confidence, from the helpful staff at reception, to Ajitha who is completely professional and yet warm, kind and friendly, giving sound advice and support and filling you with confidence from the moment you meet her. I cannot recommend The Gallery Dental Practice highly enough. It is very, very good.

Molly Watson, March 2017

Modern caring excellent service

“The Gallery Dental Practice is a professional, clinical, dental practice in the community providing a modern caring excellent service. My families health has improved and benefited since joining.”

Phil Andrews

Professional treatment that is best for us

“Over the years, having had a number of Dentists, we can honestly say that Ajitha at the Gallery Dental Practice has removed that feeling of fear and dread that one used to get.We feel confident when attending an appointment that we are in safe hands and will receive the professional treatment that is best for us”

John and Jennifer Bevis

The dentist has got to be good and, quite simply

“When you travel over 40 miles each way to visit your dentist – the dentist has got to be good and, quite simply, Ajitha is the very best!Since first meeting her, the level of care, knowledge and commitment she has shown to all the family has been simply magnificent. Nothing is too much trouble – either to explain or to carry out and all with a charming, unflappable and caring manner. She will not rush you into unnecessary work and will monitor and correct rather than rush to replace.When you really get to know her you find the infectious sense of humour that one would not readily associate with this profession.We cannot recommend Ajitha and her quality support team highly enough – your teeth are truly in the safest hands!”

The Burch Family

Gallery Dental Practice in Cuckfield

“Going to the dentist is not my idea of fun, but I have to say that visiting The Gallery Dental Practice in Cuckfield is almost a pleasure. The staff, one and all, are absolutely delightful – welcoming, kind, thoughtful and extremely helpful. I travel from Billingshurst rather than going to a local practice,  because I know that I will be well looked after, especially by Ajitha  She knows I have a  fear of dentists but is always sympathetic and does what she can to make the experience as painless as possible.  She has a great sense of humour and we always find something to laugh about.”

Jill Stewart

Excellent service I always receive at the Gallery Dental Practice

“I have been a patient of The Gallery Dental Practice for over ten years. It is an extremely professional dental practice and I have the utmost confidence and trust in all the staff who work there.I know that I am in safe hands and my dental health is very important to them. The staff are always friendly and it is a pleasure to see them when I have to go and on occasion when I have had to ring up for an emergency appointment due to a dental issue, it has never been a problem for me to be seen at short notice and treatment started if necessary.I would highly recommend this dental practice to anyone and often do.”

Amanda Shepherd-Gardner

Best Wishes

“My whole family have been patients at The Gallery Dental Practice since it was opened many years ago and I cannot speak highly of the treatment we have received from that day to this.Between us we have had all manner of of treatments, with many of mine being complicated, and we have not had one bad experience with the quality of work being of the highest order.Every member of staff has a professional approach but at the same time are pleasant and friendly and the environment at the practice is always relaxed and comfortable and patients dealt with personal touch.I have been and will continue to be happy to recommend anyone looking for a dentist to see Ajitha Rahim and her team at The Gallery Dental Practice.”
