Say hello to our team of dentists and dental specialists

Dedicated to excellence, dedicated to your smile

Whether we’re repairing a broken tooth, soothing anxiety, or treating a dental emergency, decades of experience goes into what we do.

Our team of dentists, nurses, receptionists and specialists are as caring as they are knowledgeable, and will make you feel at ease from the minute you set foot in our clinic.

We make a visit to Crouch Hall Dental Care something to look forward to.

Principal dentists and co-owners

Brothers, Laith & Bil Abbas became co-principals of Crouch Hall Dental Care in 2015. Taking over a dental practice carries a lot of responsibility and a huge commitment to the existing staff as well as the local community especially as the clinic had been looking after the crouch end locals for over 98 years.

However they both fell in love with the local area immediately and how close knit the community clearly was. It was with this very positive feeling that they both decided to take on Crouch Hall Dental Care working with the excellent associate dentists who had all been at the practice for a combined 70 years! (See their bios below).

Laith & Bill undertook a large refurbishment of the practice as well as investing in state of the art technology and equipment immediately on becoming co-principals of the practice. They are extremely committed to the practice offering the very best service and clinical care to their existing patients and new patients respectively.

In 2017, we celebrated 100 years since Crouch Hall Dental Care opened its doors and we remain highly committed and motivated in ensuring that we continue to progress the practice and offer our patients excellent dental care.

Dr Laith Abbas BDS (Bris)

Principal dentist

GDC number: 191836

I qualified from Bristol University in 2010 with a merit in restorative dentistry.

It was with this huge interest in restorative dentistry that I decided to progress my skills further by undergoing many post graduate courses in restorative dentistry including courses at the prestigious Eastman Dental Institute and Kings College London.

I am currently undergoing my MClinDent (double masters) in fixed and removable prosthodontics at Kings College London which I currently use to offer patients my huge experience in:

-Smile Makeovers including cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers
- Crown and bridgework
- Teeth Whitening
- General dentistry
- Nightguards for the provision of grinding and clenching

I enjoy meeting people and treating people first. I genuinely believe that being an excellent dentist requires a dentist to be gentle, personable, friendly and most importantly human! Seeing a dentist is a nervous time for most and it takes time for a patient to be comfortable with their dentist. This is why I take time to get to know my patients as people and make sure they are clear with what I recommend for their treatment and what this involves.

I enjoy treating anxious patients and changing the way they feel about dentistry. Having a few good experiences at the dentist will result in a completely different  impression of dentistry and I feel very passionately that dentistry should not be a scary or painful experience. I enjoy treating my patients as friends and it is with this way of thinking that I have been treating most of my patients for many years.

Socially, I enjoy traveling and for my sins I am an avid Arsenal fan. I also enjoy being a part time chef, although I do not serve anybody apart from my family which makes me just a good cook.

Dentists with a specialist interest

Dr Dina Abbas

Dentist with special interest in the field of Periodontics | BDS 2006 (Lond) studying PG Dip Perio

GDC number: 106092

I qualified from Queen Mary (university of London) in 2006.

After going straight into general practice at Whitstable for a year, I decided to move back to my hometown of Essex where I practiced as a general dental practitioner.

I realised early on, that periodontics was a passion of mine due to its importance for successful further treatment. Quality dentistry should be built on a foundation of healthy gums and stable teeth. Not addressing the health of your gums and bone surrounding the teeth could lead to early tooth loss and may have implications on systemic health issues.

I am enrolled on a Postgraduate Diploma in Periodontics.

This further study qualifies me to carry out non-surgical and surgical treatment such as pocket reduction surgery (resective and regenerative), gum recession surgery, and crown lengthening surgery ( both aesthetic and restorative). This continual education ensures I'm up to date with the newest research and developments in periodontal therapy, allowing me to put clinical study findings to use in everyday practice.

I am dedicated to helping anxious and nervous patients feel at ease, whilst giving patients the tools, knowledge and motivation to improve their oral health, for life.

In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors with my two dogs and you’ll find me lifting heavy weights at the local gym!
