Customer Testimonials

my family’s dental health for the best part of 20 years

“Ajitha and her excellent team of professional have taken care of my family’s dental health for the best part of 20 years. The service has always been really friendly and of the highest quality. The practice scrupulously observes the best standards of hygiene and cleanliness and is equipped with the most up-to-date dental technology. The welcoming reception helps dispel those all too familiar anxieties associated with a visit to the dentist and the light and airy reception area also adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Ajitha herself is always cheerful and quickly puts everyone at ease, as do the other professional staff.
I have quite complex dental requirements and I have always found Ajitha more than willing to discuss, patiently and in a down to earth way, the possibilities and options associated with my treatment.
As a family we have been happy to use the Galley Dental Practice insurance scheme to cover the cost of most of our treatment, which we think is very reasonable.
Overall, we cannot speak highly enough of the outstanding care and treatment provided by Ajitha and her colleagues.”

Iain MacLean

Excellent visit

On my recent visit to the Dentist. I would like to say what an excellent visit. I am a very nervous patient. My nerves were relaxed by the excellent calming nature of Mrs Ajitha Rahim. Two extractions later not feeling anything only the injections. I left the dentist feeling ok. Excellent work would highly recommend. This dentist and practice. They are always helpful and great service.

How better to describe the quality and warmth of the service at Gallery Dental

Dick Knight on Gallery Dental

How better to describe the quality and warmth of the service at Gallery Dental than to say that, having moved out of the Haywards Heath area, I am now happy to drive 50 miles there and back, to still enjoy the skills, professionalism and friendliness of Ajitha and her team.
They make you feel relaxed the moment you walk through the door.
And there’s an impressive array of support equipment, which Ajitha conducts like an orchestra maestro, that makes your time in the dentist’s chair nothing more than simply comfortable.
Indeed, this happy team themselves go the extra mile, to ensure that ‘’A visit to the dentist’’ is always an extremely pleasant, worry-free experience at Gallery Dental.

They understand the problems I have with dental treatment

Dear Ajitha

Thanks for our appointments this morning. Here is my testimonial.

I can’t praise Ajitha and her team enough for this wonderful way they treat me. They understand the problems I have with dental treatment and focus on keeping me calm and supporting me through whatever they need to do, so I never need to worry about visiting the dentist.

Over the last year I have really struggled with wearing a mask, and I have begun to dread having to go anywhere because it can involve difficult and unpleasant encounters with people who don’t understand and who can make things worse. I never get into a stress when I’m going to the Gallery dental practice because I know how supportive they are.

Thanks to all of you.

Glynis Hargeaves  

skilled professional team….

We have been attending Ajitha (Dr Rahim) for over 12 years, since she took over at the Gallery Dental Practice. She is always cheerful and exudes a confidence that sets you immediately at ease. She is very deft and skilled at her work and she draws on the best of modern practice to recommend the optimum treatment for you. For the most advanced work she has the backup of some of the most skilled specialists around.Ajitha takes great pains to ensure that you understand exactly what the options are and what she proposes as the best course of action for any treatment.And she is supported by a skilled professional team who are always obliging and helpful. The premises provide a comfortable, relaxed and spotless
atmosphere.Our son now travels from Crawley to continue to be treated by her – a compliment in itself!

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
