Are you fed up with your concerns not being heard? Do you wonder why your teeth keep on breaking? Are you looking for long-term solutions? Dr Shakir Mughal and Dr Ash Patel of Bucklersbury Dentists in Hitchin have been trained at the Pankey Institute, USA which emphasises techniques to help the dentist understand what the client really wants. By listening carefully and collecting all necessary information, we can create a plan for your oral health, based on your wishes and budget. We believe all clients should have a comprehensive exam before embarking on any major dental work.


For dentistry to be predictable and long-lasting, it must be built on solid foundations. We promote healthy gums, teeth and smile. Clients who already have significant dentistry in their mouths require a team approach from their dentist and hygienist. This will help maintain their oral health for years to come.

We promote cosmetic or invisible fillings. Our dentists have been on several advanced courses to learn the latest predictable techniques in giving you natural-looking fillings. Whether you are looking to change your silver fillings or looking for mercury-free dentistry, we can offer you predictable solutions for a more confident smile.

Sometimes this procedure is needed to fight off infections or rebuild a very broken-down tooth. By using magnification through dental loupes and microscopes, we can predictably carry out root canal therapy. This method is great at saving teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted.


We understand that going to the dentist is not everyone’s favourite pastime. We have created a unique and friendly experience to make it welcoming and fun for our young clients. Our aim is to make their experience memorable in a good way, making it possible for them to grow up liking the dentist and their visits so that they can enter adulthood with the best possible oral health.

We promise to take the individual needs, fears and wishes of our child patients and their parents very seriously. We have developed child-friendly language and props to make the dental visit into a truly fun experience.


We believe in prevention. Preventing our clients fearing their visits, preventing any decay or gum disease, preventing tooth loss or pain. We love prevention! Our dentists, hygienist and nurses are lovely and will help create the perfect experience for our young clients - be it their first visit or for any treatment sessions!


We offer optimum dentistry for your child to grow up with minimum pain and discomfort. We believe baby teeth or primary teeth are really important. They guide the adult teeth into position. Therefore, we try our best to keep them as long as naturally possible.


We assess our child clients frequently for orthodontic care from the age of 8. There are two schools of thought - early orthodontics and traditional late or teen-based orthodontics. We try to pick up issues early and, if possible, start orthodontics early from the age of 10. This is termed interceptive orthodontics and helps prevent the need for teeth to be taken out later on.


We believe replacing lost or missing teeth has substantial benefits for your health and appearance. A denture replaces the natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Without this support, sagging facial muscles can make a person appear older and reduce their ability to eat and speak.

A denture is an appliance that is worn to replace lost or missing teeth which enables you to enjoy a healthy diet and smile with confidence. Traditional dentures are made of acrylic (plastic) or metal, but we also provide newer cosmetic dentures (Valplast®). They are made from an incredibly strong nylon resin which allows them to be flexible, durable, and very comfortable – not to mention looking very natural.
