Hema Chauhan

Head Receptionist

Hema has been with the practice since 2001 and knows the practice like the back of her hand. She is definitely our loudest member of the team, and brings much needed ‘zest’ to dentistry. She champions the voice of our patients who love her as she makes sure that they are well taken care of. Hema has successfully been organising and holding annual charity fund raising events on behalf of the practice since 2014.

During her spare time, Hema enjoys cooking and of course ‘eating’ authentic food, taking long walks to help relax the mind, spending quality time with friends and family and on the odd occasion, engaging in retail therapy.

She is very passionate about maintaining patients’ oral health by preventing and treating gum disease and with an emphasis on promoting good oral health practice.

She treats patients with mild, moderate and advanced gum disease and help patients to keep their teeth for life. 

She is qualified in tooth whitening and has extensive experience in treating nervous patients and children. She also does permanent fillings in both adults and children.

Yalini Rajkumar

Trainee Dental Nurse

Yalini is arguably the ‘chirpiest’ individual in our practice. She stumbled across dental nursing when job searching & thought in 2021 she would ‘give it a go’. Luckily, it was one of the best decisions she feels she has made. She loves to interact with patients to make sure they are well looked after and enjoys working on the front desk.

Her interests outside of work include reading books, watching anime movies alongside chill out time with her brothers and family and learning new things to develop her skills.
