Having had braces fitted for just 4 months I am delighted with the results which have give me greater confidence.

Dr Phil was extremely professional, friendly and explained the progress and treatment thoroughly. The procedure I received was quick, efficient and Dr Phil, being a perfectionist made sure I completed the programme fully.

I am very happy with my experiences at Ask Sid Dental and all the team are excellent in their roles.


I have been coming to Ask Sid Dental for twelve years and have found that they provide an excellent service. Dr Phil showed detailed and sensitive examination of my teeth whilst exercising appropriate enquiry of my personal circumstances. This was shown by enquiring after illness and events that were shared in a previous visit.

I therefore highly recommend Ask Sid Dental to anyone in the Broadwater area in search of a first class dentist. (The dental nurses and reception staff are also efficient and …. Good looking!)


I first came to see Dr Phil in September 2018 with very bad teeth. I literally never smiled and had no confidence in myself at all.

I had numerous root canal treatments and six crowns in total. All the treatment was virtually pain free.

Dr Phil has transformed my life. I didn’t like talking to people and as I am on a front desk, this was very difficult, but now I love smiling and I am talking all the time.


I had a “rotten” tooth and had decided to have it extracted. I had heard about implants wondered if this might be a suitable type of replacement.

At my initial appointment, I explained this and enquired about the alternatives open to me. A range of ideas were put to me. At the same time the dentist made clear his professional recommendations and explained fully the reasons for each.

His preference for an implant as the best alternative agreed with my own idea. Costs and the stages of treatment were all fully explained to me.

The treatment proceeded throughout exactly as it had been explained to me. The treatment itself and the “bedside manner “ of the team and the other staff was professional, thoroughly competent and courteous throughout.

As someone who has never regarded a visit to the dentist well, this could hardly have been better for me.

I am intending to have a second implant next year and I know that I can have full confidence in Ask Sid Dental in carrying it out.


This practice is the kindest dentist I have ever come across and also the dental nurse who supports her is amazing. They are both patient and very caring.

I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone for today and not forgetting the front desk staff who are always friendly and helpful.


Josie, fantastic work on my daughters brace treatment!


Thank you for treating the family. You restored my terrible fear of dentists and I especially found your reception staff not only welcoming but calming and really kind too. I think that really helped me as the waiting for the inevitable appointment was half the panic. They were hugely kind to my small children too which was so lovely and greatly appreciated as waiting with little people is normally like pulling teeth in itself.


I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for being a warm, welcoming team from the moment of arrival with lovely smiles at the front desk.

Josie - you are a star and I am fully recovered after your amazing extraction of my horrid tooth!

Much appreciation and best regards.


Thank you so much for fitting me in to see Josie on Monday morning.
I have a very jagged broken tooth and with Rob away, I really appreciate your kindness in finding an appointment for me and I just wanted to write and say thanks.


Hi, Josie, thank you so much for the photos, I am not sure I enjoyed the ‘before’ photos!
Of course you can feel free to use any of them how you want to, if it helps patients see what can be achieved.
The family were amazed at the transformation to the new me.
I am so enjoying eating properly again.


I would just like to thank you for your complete care and consideration to me whilst having treatment, I was so nervous about dentists that I stayed away for approx 7 years!!!! Now after meeting you I can honestly say that I have no reservations about seeing you for my next appointment.

Thank you once again for your kindness and your gentlessence!!!


I have had my new teeth for a whole day now and eaten a proper meal today at our friends' house and they feel very natural. I am very pleased with them and they look so natural.


Just wanted to say thank you so much. It was a very positive experience and Dr Phil really put me at ease.


To Dr Phil and all at Ask Sid Dental, big thanks for giving me back my smile, all the best


I have had a safe trip back to South Africa and all is well with my new teeth.
I would like to thank you for changing my life. I now feel much more confident when smiling and talking. My gums are healing nicely and I will let you know if there are any problems.


Wife had treatment at your place in week. She's terrified of dentists but came out smiling, so well done DE, she normally has to be dragged in screaming.


Just to let you know my teeth are looking and behaving very well.
The wedding was a great success and a very happy occasion. I even had a compliment from my daughter’s friend that I “have lovely teeth”, which made us roar with laughter.
Looking forward to seeing you at the next appointment.

Very best wishes.


I was nervous and scared about going to any dentist, until a friend told me about Dentalessence in Woking.
When I met Dr Dr Phil she made me feel at ease and more comfortable. Dr Dr Phil and her assistant were very caring and gentle.

The treatment I had was without doubt, very good and for further treatments my nervousness had gone and I never thought I could go to a dentist and say that. I trust her and all the staff.

Highly recommended.


I would like to thank Mo and staff for the care and attention given to me on my visits to have Veneers fitted. Mo explain everything he needed to do and the consideration given to me was exceptional, even giving up his lunch to collect the veneers from the Technicians because the wouldn’t have been there for my appointment. Couldn’t ask more. Mo and his assistant are a great duo.
I would also like to thank the Receptionists as they do a grand job arranging appointments and are always helpful


To Jo and staff, Many thanks for the lovely flowers and kind wishes they came as a wonderful surprise. I'm now back home after my '10 day hospital adventure' and feeling more normal (for me) by the day. Hoping to see you in May


I am very pleased that Dr Phil is my dentist, I have always found Jose to be very professional and extremely efficient in dealing with the problems I have had.

The practice is caring and the staff try very hard to accommodate the needs of their patients.


I am so happy to have got Dr Philini Anand of Ask Sid Dental as my new dental surgeon.

She has had to do a lot of remedial work, which has been well explained and near painless, and carried out meticulously I fully recommend her five star treatment!


I wanted to write a little note to say a very big thank you for your wonderfully successful and clean extraction on my wisdom teeth yesterday.
I was a little nervous but your expertise and reassurance entrusted me in your capable hands throughout the procedure.
I haven't had any bleeding and the holes are heeling nicely so far so I hope you manage to have some time to enjoy your weekend!

Thank you once again, I was very impressed and extremely satisfied with the work you did.


Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the work you have done on my teeth over the last two and a bit years.

Unfortunately I recently broke the only bridge you hadn’t replaced. As it was at the front I felt the need to find a nearby dentist (not 5 hours drive away) very quickly, albeit that it took me three days to find one that could see me within two months, they were able to give me an appointment within the week. In order to get a reasonable price for the work I had to sign up to a plan. So far they have also been very patient and understanding, just like you.

After 15 years of not finding a truly satisfactory dentist I had given up hope, you restored my faith in dentists. Something I will never forget, thank you. Please pass on my thanks also to all the reception staff who have always been friendly and helpful.


Josie, I really wanted to write and thank you for your help over the many months you have been treating me. Your patience and understanding have been more than I could have hoped for.
All your staff have been extremely kind to me and I feel they have got to know me as I have them. I must of course mention Aoife who has done everything possible to make my visits (almost) a pleasure.
Again, may I say, you yourself have been kindness itself and I would be glad to recommend your services whenever I can.


I have been coming to Ask Sid Dental for some time now and more recently was able to invest in some cosmetic treatments.
I saw Dr Josie and he was amazing.
A real gent and someone who clearly has a real talent for making great smiles.
I am beaming from ear to ear - thanks to all the guys.


Amazing – Affordable

A real treat even though my boyfriend paid for my tooth whitening


Being petrified of the dentist I finally came to see Dr Anand through a recommendation for some implants.
He showed me how the process works and guided me through lots of photos/videos of what can be done and how quick it can be.
Needless to say I have never been more confident with my smile.


After my daughter came to see Josie she was so impressed that she signed us all up and I don’t even live in England!!
Especially good when it comes to the kiddies.


Professional through and through.
This place is so relaxing I actually fell asleep whilst having my roots out!!
Bring on the crown.


A little bit pricey but well worth it
Thanks Josie you are a true artist…


"Many thanks to Dr Josie Anand for suggesting that he could make me a chrome based upper denture which would custom fit some crowns that I need to have replaced.
I was having difficulty in eating with the few top teeth that I had left and was going to lose two more teeth. Implants were not a financially viable option at this time and so an alternative had to be sort.
The first part of the treatment was to make an acrylic plate which fitted very well over the few months it was in use with no problems - this helped me get used to a new bite.
When it came to fitting the new crowns and custom fitting chrome denture this was a triumph - a perfect fit the first time!
Eating is now a pleasure once more!
I would also like to thank the lab technician who was there for most of the appointments..."


I joined the practice last year and I must say how happy I have been with the care provided by Dr Philini and all the staff. Dr Philini is lovely, always friendly and kind. The appointments are generally on time as well.

I would happily recommend Dr Philini and the practice to my friends and family.


I was recommended Dr Dr Phil and the Inman Aligner by a friend. I had been through fixed train tracks as a teenager, which improved my teeth, but they were still slightly crossed over in places.

It annoyed me! For me, the Inman Aligner was a great solution because of the speed of the correction. I am delighted with the end result….it was definitely worth it.


Dr Anand took great care to explain all options and costs in great depth and managed to keep me comfortable and relaxed during lengthy treatment even though I had previously been too scared to visit a dentist for 20 years.

I am extremely happy with the end result and would recommend the practice and Dr Anand to anyone.

Many thanks


Visiting the dentist is quite an ordeal for anyone of us. However the friendly staff and highly qualified group of dentists make your visit as pleasant as possible.

Dr Philini, my dentist, took exemplary care of me (and my teeth) throughout my six month treatment.

Dr Philini is very exacting about her standard of work, and her sincerity in giving advice or answering any questions you have makes you feel you have received the best treatment possible.
