Dental Hygienist & Therapist
Bala qualified as a dentist in 2001 and having spent 4 years working in private practice abroad, decided to move to the UK to further her learning by pursuing a career as a Dental Hygienist & Therapist. Prior to becoming registered in the UK, she worked as a sedation nurse for many years, which gave her valuable skills in managing anxious patients and seeing the patient from a different perspective. She has extensive experience of managing oral health and is able to build rapport and has the envious knack of being able to put patients at ease from the very beginning of the patient journey. She always listens to the patient’s expectations, from the care they expect to the way they would like their treatment to progress. As like all our team, Bala keeps her knowledge and skills up to date by regularly attending courses and carrying out clinical self-audits.
In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her family cooking and travelling.

"I brought myself to Dr Sawhney after a bad experience elsewhere involving the removal of a conspicuous tooth resulting in practical concerns and a loss of confidence. I was reassured by the quality of care and advice I received and was able to decide upon a dental implant with full knowledge of the costs and process, including the timescale of six months."
“Dr. Sawhney has been excellent at recommending the correct treatments and ensuring I have had the best service possible. I would recommend Riverside Dental to everyone, especially nervous patients, as the staff could not make you feel more relaxed. I am now more confident in my appearance, which makes a hugh difference!”
“Amazing dental practice who I have already highly recommended to all of my family and friends. Not only are all of the staff so helpful and friendly, but they have transformed my smile. I also recommend the Invisalign treatment as well as having bonding work, as Bim did an outstanding job! Thanks again.”
