It’s really put me at ease knowing that I’m going to train professionals.That genuinely care about me and my oral hygiene and health. And all they want is the best for me.Honestly I’m so happy that I found them, and I would not go anywhere else now.And I wanna say a special thank you to all the team for looking after me in such a amazing way.

If I could, I'd leave a 10 out 5 stars. This practice is absolutely lovely. My mum had an emergency and they ended up reacting super fast and making time to see her on the same day. She now feels a lot better and can finally eat again. The whole staff is amazing and friendly. They made us feel like we are coming into a candy store and not a dental practice. The dentist was very gentle and considerate. I had to come in and translate for my mum since her English is not brilliant but they were very welcoming in any and all aspects. Later on she told me that she wasnt sure if the dentist was doing stuff or giving her a massage. This is how comfortable she felt in the chair and how well the people there are doing their jobs. The cleanness of the practice is also super comforting especially since its Covid weather and you feel safe and secure there. I would definitely recommend going here if you are in the area or surrounding areas.

All-round an exceptional experience. I first visited the practice to have a consultation with Dr Nuno Ferreira and I can honestly say that I have never had such an in-depth, professional and friendly experience with a dentist before. This same standard has been maintained in all subsequent appointments, with Dr Nuno Ferreira ensuring that all work is done correctly, even if it means sacrificing some of his spare time. My hygienist appointment with Dr Smita Mehra was equally as friendly and thorough and Mel always provides a warm welcome to the practice.

Fantastic service and lovely people. I had three wisdom teeth removed in less time and discomfort than a single one was removed a few years previously by another dentist. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Neem Tree.

As I am an extremely nervous patient I had to look for a dentist I would be comfortable with.Fortunately I found The Neem Tree and I have not been disappointed!I cannot fault them,the dentistry (which was extensive) the care and patience was first class.I would like to thank Mel,Katrina and Nuno who looked after me brilliantly from start to finish.

I recently joined Neem Tree practice after my previous dentist retired. All the staff are very welcoming and kind. They can't do enough for you. I had a wisdom tooth extracted last week and the extra after care has been terrific. I even had a phone call the next day to see how I was, something I've never had at any other practice!! Any concerns I had were dealt with quickly and efficiently. They may not be the cheapest around, but I would highly recommend them.

i have always struggled with dentists over the years.My Daughter started a course of treatment at Neemtree and she said they were really good and that's where i needed to go as they would look after me properly.The NeemTree team have helped me overcome my fears, and made me feel in control and safe, by working at my pace.Even thought I have only been a few times I would like to thank Dr Nuno and his nurse and reception for putting me at ease.I am very happy to provide this positive feedback and would recommend the practice to anybody including any nervous patient's.

My wife and l have been clients since the practice opened several years ago and we have both had multiple treatments.It’s important that clients feel confident in their dentist and like them as a person . They don’t get more pleasant than Nuno and his treatment team and Mel his manager . Thoroughly recommend Neem Tree. They will sort problems in a gentle and kind way.

I just HAD to write a review of my experience at The Neem Tree Dental Practice. I’ve just left there today having had a crown which I have to admit I was so nervous about I’ve been worrying about it for two weeks! I’m probably the most terrified person to ever visit a dentist but my mind was completely put at ease when I first set foot in the door, by the lovely Mel on reception. It was an emergency appointment and I had been seen within hours of calling. What a team! That day I was seen by the wonderful Dr Joana whose kind and gentle nature was matched by her touch as she did a temporary filling to make my tooth temporarily safe. Then today I saw her husband, Dr Nuno, who I can only describe as a magician. I was in there for over 3 hours and not once did I feel the slightest twinge of pain, despite the hole being right by the nerve. Not only was he superb in ability but we had such a laugh, along with his very able and smiley assistant Carolina. We even watched the football at my request (well I don’t think Nuno saw much of it) but incredibly, I can only describe the afternoon as an extremely unexpected, almost enjoyable experience! I haven’t seen Alice, their hygienist, yet but I used to see her elsewhere and it was her who I followed to Esher. She too is out of this world brilliant! I can’t thank the team enough for their wonderful work, alongside such a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Maybe finally after 60 years my fear of the dentist will disappear!

Very efficient , professional and caring establishment. Also very COVID compliant.I had root canal and crown on one tooth and implant on adjacent gap.Everyone who works at the practice is incredibly friendly but more over extremely professional. From Mel at reception, to Carolina, Dr Joana and Dr Nuno. They take the time to explain the plan they recommend, full transparency with the costs and stick to what they promise.Nobody likes going to a dental surgery but if and when you have to go to one , I would highly recommend The Neem Tree.Bravo to all the team.

ALICE HYGIENIST: Alice has helped guide me to a new dental hygiene routine which has had such a great impact for me. Both small changes and some key larger ones that I have introduced into my routine which I now wouldn't live without. Alice explains so much of what she is doing, and why. to really help me understand the importance of maintaining these extra steps. I would highly recommend Alice - she is an exceptional hygienist.

Alice is the best hygienist my teeth have ever encountered! She really pays attention to the finer details, and always ensures I leave with pearly whites.On a secondary note, Alice is very skilled at dealing with difficult/nervous children. My daughter is autistic and hates anyone touching her, yet Alice seems to have the magic touch. I’m grateful for her services and highly recommend them to anyone else too.

As a retired dentist I recently attended this practice for the first time. I found the receptionist, Mel, warm and friendly. My dentist, Dr Shivani Patel, was wonderful and the treatment I received from Dr Nuno Ferreira was so good that it was almost enjoyable. I feel very fortunate to have found this practice.

The Neem Tree is an amazing dental practice. I have been going there for a few years now and have been having treatment to straighten my teeth, as well as a tooth replacement and the results are amazing. Joanna is fantastic - kind, friendly and very considerate. She explains all the treatment upfront and also all the options available, so you can make your own decisions.Before choosing the Neem Tree I had checked out a few other practices to ask about treatment, but I chose Joanna because she was honest and genuine and I felt I would get the best treatment and service. She is the best dentist I have ever had. I have also had treatment with Nuno, who is also fantastic and highly skilled. They are a great partnership and take pride in their work. I cannot recommend this practice enough.

I can't believe I am saying this, especially as someone who has suffered rather extreme dental anxiety in the past, but I have actually LOOK FORWARD to going to the dentist...! The team are fabulous, so friendly so attentive, so talented. I couldn't recommend them any higher. Joanna is possibly one of the funniest people ever (hygienist) and Shivani, is a dental whizz - such a light touch, I really had the loveliest experience with both of them, and I had extensive work (fillings, post and crown, 2 X hygienist appointments) - thank you ladies, you're wonderful.

Nuno and Shivani the dentists are fantastic and really put you at ease. I highly recommend this practise!

Fantastic practice I can genuinely recommend for the whole family! I am a nervous patient, but they all do their best to put me at ease. Joanna is a great dentist as well as caring and understanding, always talking me through every examination and procedure. My family and I have been with the practice for 10 years, and between us we have had multiple treatments and check-ups, always to a high standard and care. Nuno is a very experienced and skilful dentist as well and his cheerful attitude will bring a smile to even the most nervous patient. Mel will try her best to accommodate every patient's request and her positive attitude and laughter can be felt as soon as you walk through the door! Together, the team at Neem Tree Esher makes going to the dentist just a little bit easier!

I have a TMJ disorder and have avoided going to the dentist for years because I have a limited mouth opening and find it very painful to recline and keep my mouth open for long periods of time. I, however, had nothing to worry about as Dr.Joanna Ferreira and the rest of the Neem Tree staff were absolutely amazing! Dr. Ferreira made the experience as comfortable as it could be by allowing to me to sit as upright as possible and take breaks to rest my jaw every few minutes. I am incredibly happy to have found the Neem Tree practice and I can’t recommend them enough!

I can't sing enough praises for The Neem Tree! Normally, as is the case with most of us, the dentist is not a place I want to go to unless I absolutely have to. But from start to finish, the experience was - I'll go as far to say - enjoyable! From the minute I arrived, I was greeted by the most positive and warm receptionist, Mel. Not only did she glow with sunshine, but I could tell she really cared, as she went out of her way to ensure I was calm and comfortable, and when she answered the phone, I could hear how she was so kind and helpful with the patient on the other end.Next, I was invited by Joana to go in to have my hygiene treatment. Naturally, I felt nervous, but Joana was so kind, considerate, gentle and warm. I felt in such safe hands, and I actually felt really relaxed! Joana has a way of making you trust her immediately, and again, I could tell she genuinely cared.A big thank you to Mel, Joana and The Neem Tree - I look forward to coming back to such a uniquely nurturing and special dental practice!

I can't praise Neem Tree enough. I have been in pain since lockdown began and was told by my own practise to just take pain killers. I didn't realise I could see another dentist. I rang yesterday morning and they fitted me in at the end of the day. They removed the tooth painlessly and 24 hours later I'm pain free. Everyone is so friendly and kind. If only I'd gone sooner. Thank you so much.

I arrived at the Neem Tree very nervous having neglected my teeth for too long and in need of lots of help. I am very nervous of going to the dentist having had some terrible experiences around the world and i can't reccomend this team highly enough. The atmosphere from the moment you arrive is a caring one with everybody pulling in the same direction to make you feel welcome and safe. They have squeezed me in last minute and got straight to work on some urgently needed treatment, all of which has been pain free with various dentists within the practice. I am in a much better place with my teeth now thanks to The Neem Tree. Thank you!

The Neem Tree Esher is a fantastic practice. They're especially caring and very flexible. Dr Nuno Ferreira goes above and beyond for his patients - he dedicated many hours to my treatment, often fitting in evening appointments around my full-time work schedule and working on my treatment plan from home. He is never content until everything is perfect; a true professional. Mel on Reception is always positive and is such a friendly face to encounter before an appointment. Lovely practice and staff.

I’m overwhelmed by the service and thoroughness of the Team in particular Dr Kunal. I had seen many dentists over the years however this dentist can’t do enough to allay my fears around my nervousness of my front tooth. He was so patient and gentle with me, I’m taking my mother as she has similar anxieties around dentists. I’m so relieved and grateful.

What to do in a Dental Emergency

Do I have a dental emergency?

The aim of our emergency appointment service in Surrey is to provide urgent dental cate to everyone in need of a dentist, without having to go into A&E for emergency dental treatment. Hospitals are very crowded at the moment, while as dentists, we are able to ensure that you have minimal human contact when you come into our clinic and you are dealt with in the most hygienic and appropriate way.

We can treat issues such as a general toothache, lost crown or filling, orthodontic emergencies, wisdom tooth pain and sensitive teeth, amongst many other painful dental emergencies. Before you need to come into our clinic we will advise you how to deal with your situation at home first, if at all possible.

Contact us as soon as you think you may have a dental emergency. We will advise you on the best course of action and try as hard as we can to book you in for emergency treatment same day you call us. 

What to do: General toothache

If you are experiencing any toothache while you are home during lockdown there are a few home remedies you can try doing to ease your pain. Over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol will definitely help with the pain. Take these painkillers as they are intended to be used. Take them orally, do not put them directly on the painful area in your mouth as that could do you more harm than good.

If you are experiencing any inflammation or swelling, using a cold compress on that side of your cheek will help reduce it. Rinsing your mouth with warm water may also help in case the pain is originating from something being stuck in between your teeth.

Taking painkillers and sticking to a good oral hygiene routine should be able to keep the pain at bay. If you need advice call our dentist in Esher and they will advise you accordingly.

If the pain intensifies or is continuous over more than two days, you need to call our emergency dental practice to book an emergency dental appointment.

No matter what your case, our emergency dentists in Esher will be able to diagnose you immediately after you call. Treatment will also be on the same day as your emergency dental appointment, so do not hesitate to call when you are in pain.

Call us today and book an emergency dental appointment with our practice in Esher now.

What to do: Bleeding gums

If you are brushing your teeth and you notice a bit of pink when you spit out toothpaste and you notice some bleeding when you floss, then you need to give us a call and book an emergency dental appointment immediately. Unfortunately, this is usually the result of gingivitis or gum disease, and your gums will continue to bleed until you are treated.

There can be many reasons why your gums are bleeding which is why you should call your dentist as soon as possible so we can get you treated. Conditions such as gingivitis are at risk of getting worse if they are left untreated.

Our team at The Neem Tree Esher are always ready to help you for same-day treatment, any day (including Sundays). Contact us now for urgent dental appointments in Surrey and we will take care of you.

What to do: Broken or chipped teeth

If you have chipped or broken a tooth as a result of an accident or injury, it can be a very painful and traumatic experiment. Therefore it is very important that you get seen and seek emergency dental care immediately.

It is important to save any chips or fragments you can. Bring them to your emergency dental appointment that we will give you when you call us explaining your situation.

If you have a chipped tooth or it is broken, put it in milk and bring it to us once you have booked an appointment.

When you come into our Esher clinic, we will be able to glue the fragment of the tooth back on inside your mouth. If necessary we can also perform a root canal treatment for a badly broken tooth where nerves are exposed.

We offer our emergency dental appointment to both existing and new patients. Be sure to call beforehand to book an emergency appointment as we do not take walk-ins. Explain your situation clearly on the phone so we understand exactly how to treat you when you come in.

What to do: Knocked-out tooth

You need to act fast when a tooth gets knocked out. A knocked out tooth can usually be saved and put back in place as long as you call as soon as possible when this occurs. In the case that you have a knocked out tooth, keep that tooth safe and book an emergency dental appointment.

You can keep the tooth safe in a container of milk. If you do not have milk, you can use a cup of water with a pinch of salt. The longer the tooth is out of the mouth, the chances of survival decreases significantly.

Ideally you should bring the tooth with you to your emergency appointment. Try to call us immediately and we will do our best to see you within the same hour to put the tooth back into position.

Despite the different methods that we have to save a tooth that has been knocked out, it is clear that prevention is the best strategy. Wearing a mouthguard is a great preventative method to protect your teeth while playing sports and grinding teeth during your sleep.

Keep in mind that the length of time that the tooth was out of the mouth and the way it is stored after being knocked out heavily influences the chances of saving the tooth. Your dentist will discuss the treatment options available to you on the day of your appointment.

Call us for an emergency dental appointment in Esher. We will get you into the clinic as soon as possible to examine your mouth. We will work as hard as we can to ensure that you are seen on the same day and leave our practice pain-free.

What to do: Partially dislodged (extruded) tooth

During an accident or injury, a tooth may be pushed out of its socket. Your dentist will need to reposition your tooth. This can be done best without any complications if you call us to book an emergency appointment as soon as the accident occurs.

If you are in pain we advise to use over the counter pain medication such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. This should help minimise any pain you may be feeling for time being while you wait to be seen by one of our dentists.

Please contact us immediately if your tooth is partially dislodged. We will advise you accordingly and book you in for emergency dental treatment at our Esher practice.

What to do: Lost filling

See your dentist as soon as possible.

Dental fillings don’t last forever so, sometimes they do fall out. If you notice that a filling has fallen out, your first step should be to call us and schedule an appointment.

Let us know on the phone whether you are in pain. Our emergency dental services that are open right now will ensure that you will be able to be seen as soon as possible. While you are on the phone scheduling your emergency appointment, ask for suggestions about protecting the exposed tooth while you wait to be seen by your dentist.

Keep the lost filling if you can so we can determine whether to reuse it.

In the meantime, you should focus on protecting the tooth involved. Protect the tooth by carrying out a good oral hygiene routine. Make sure to brush the area where the filling came out, very gently, you do not want to risk aggravating that area.

If a filling is not replaced within a few days, it can cause damage to the unprotected tooth. The pain that you may be feeling also may increase.

We recommend that you call us and schedule an emergency dental appointment as soon as you notice the missing filling. The quicker you can get treatment, the less risk you have to the exposed tooth.  Our clinic in Esher will be able to arrange urgent oral treatment and resolve your emergency on the same day.

What to do: Lost crown

Dental crowns are made to last for many years however, they can become loose if correct oral hygiene routines are not adhered to. If you notice that your crown has become loose or you notice that part of the crown has chipped off, our dentists will be able to resolve this within one appointment.

Make an emergency dental appointment and make sure to bring the lost crown with you.

Once you book an emergency appointment, we will examine and diagnose the affected area. We will then proceed to resolve the issue. A lot of the time this just involves cementing the crown back into place or tightening the position it is in. This is not a major procedure to be nervous about.

What to do: Broken wires in braces

If the ends of your braces wires are poking out and causing you discomfort you should call our dental practice in Esher to discuss ways to fix the issue and determine whether you need to come in for an emergency appointment.

If the wire is poking you into the cheek, gums or tongue, you may be able to trim the wire using disinfected nail clippers. Use rubbing alcohol to clean the clippers. You may need someone to help you. This is not ideal to do at home therefore, we recommend for you to come in for a quick appointment and let us help alleviate your pain.

If you need quick and immediate help with your braces in Surrey, give us a call and we can book you in for an emergency dental appointment.

What to do: Loose bands or brackets in braces

First things first: Do not panic!

Book an appointment with your dentist or orthodontist as soon as possible.

Loosened brackets or the brackets detaching from your teeth can happen. If this is causing you pain call us immediately and book an emergency appointment so we can fix it.

If your bracket breaks off entirely, just remove it carefully or if you can, leave it alone until you see your orthodontist next. You are able to use orthodontic wax to help reattach any loose brackets as a temporary fix.

What to do: Dental abscess

A dental abscess is a collection of pus that can form inside the gums, or teeth or even in the bone that holds the teeth in place. It is often caused by a bacterial infection and should be treated as soon as it is spotted.

If your mouth or jaw is aching and you realise that you have dental abscess call us as soon as possible. The sooner you call, the sooner we will be able to treat you and prevent further pain and infection.

There are remedies that you may be able to do at home to ease some of your pain, but none of these will be able to treat dental abscess. The symptoms are often quite unpleasant and you may not always be in pain. It is imperative that you call us and schedule an emergency appointment. It may be the case that you need antibiotics, that can only be prescribed to you once our dentists have assessed your situation in person.

Our clinic in Esher accepts emergency dental appointments to treat dental abscess, be sure to call and schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Our dentist will be able to treat you and give you a long term care plan to combat gum disease and prevent the same thing from happening again in the future.

What to do: Injuries to soft tissue

Soft tissue includes the tongue, cheeks, gums and lips. These soft tissues are delicate and sensitive which means that they can easily get injured.

Soft tissue injuries usually do not tend to bleed a lot even though the pain remains prominent. While you wait for your emergency dental appointment here’s what you should do:

  • If the bleeding continues, dampen a piece of gauze and press it against the injured area for 10-15 minutes.
  • Holding ice or an ice pack over the area will relieve the pain and may also slow down any bleeding.
  • If the bleeding does not stop, your injury may be serious and you should call us immediately to seek further steps on what you should do.

We are trained to diagnose and repair damage to soft tissues which is why you should call us first at any sign of injury. We will book you an emergency appointment in Esher as soon as you call us with your emergency. We will be able to repair the damage to any soft tissue as soon as you walk in.

What to do: Sensitive teeth

Sensitive teeth are an increasingly common problem. You can often use products to help the pain you feel by having sensitive teeth. Products such as toothpaste and mouthwash, designed specifically for those with sensitive teeth, will help you immensely.

If you are using any home remedies or any sensitive teeth products and they are not working for you, do not hesitate to call us and ask for any advice on your situation or seek guidance on needing to book an emergency dental appointment. We understand that in the current circumstances, sensitive teeth may not seem like a big issue, but if you are in constant pain, you should call us so we can examine and treat the root of your pain.

Many people experience tooth sensitivity and pain, which can result from the gradual erosion of the tooth enamel. Home remedies can help treat tooth sensitivity immensely before you even need to visit the dentist.

If the pain is recurrent or long-standing, it is best to have it assessed at our emergency dental clinic in Esher. We will be able to prescribe pain relief and highlight the cause of your pain.

What to do: Wisdom tooth pain

People often decide to get their wisdom teeth removed as they can cause a lot of pain. Pain in wisdom teeth may resolve by itself at home but in the event that your wisdom teeth are causing you constant pain and discomfort, you need to book an emergency dentist appointment.

In the meantime, numbing gel, Ibuprofen, and an ice pack on your cheek can help reduce inflammation and potentially dull the pain. A warm salt water mouthwash will be able to keep any infection at bay and also may be able to relieve some pain you may be having.

If your pain is severe, call your dentist immediately. We will be able to advise you on what steps you can take at home to help relieve your symptoms or we will be able to give you an emergency dental appointment in Esher where we can treat you on the same day you come in.

We may prescribe you with antibiotics if we assess you and you need it. Home remedies can help dull the pain, but you need to see a dentist to treat you properly.
