The Dentists - Smile Dental Practice in Croydon
Orang (Oscar) Dadashian - DDS
Oscar is the principal dentist at the practice concentrating on two key areas. The first area that Oscar focuses on is patient satisfaction. Oscar continually ensures that all of the dentists that work with him work to a standard that he is proud of. By putting all patients first and ensuring that everyone is listened to and understood, cared for and given a first class service, Oscar makes sure that each and every patient leaves the practice having received a level of care he himself would have wanted to receive.
With a soft and gentle approach Oscar has gained the admiration of thousands of patients from all over the UK, Ireland, Sweden & USA. With over 14 years of experience in cosmetic and general dentistry, Oscar has learnt to put all of his patients at ease.
Oscar's second area of concentration is to ensure that Smile Dental Practice is a place where his staff can be proud to work. He believes that his staff spend more time at work than they do at home and this means that they need to be happy. By looking after the staff and dentists Oscar knows that his patients are receiving the best care.
He greets me in the waiting area every time I come to the practice. Having clear braces done with Oscar was the best thing I have ever done. I can now smile proudly
